  • nice site … a good example .. i might have to bookmark the site to refer for a local realty company that i will be working with.

    NICE WORK!

    Thanks! It took some configuring, but very little code modifications needed to happen. The client is very pleased.

    Clearly I need to move to Maine! My eyes nearly fell out of my head at the prices! So cheap!

    Oh, and great site, zurdog. I enjoyed browsing your work.

    WOW!

    Great site! I am bidding a site to a local used heavy equipment company. Their needs are very similar to real estate listings with price ranges, types of equipment etc.

    So my question is, “Are you saying with the above plugins you were able to build the entire site with WP?” I checked the page sources on most pages and they show to be WP pages.

    There are several outfits who have taken WP to a new level and customized the PHP code a bit/a lot and even developed their own plugins. Here is an example, see what they’ve done. MAny of their site hardly resemble a WP site. (Ex. Silas Partners)That said, I have dinking around with WP to try and get a similar standard site look without all of the custom PHP coding and unique plugins that Silas Partners does.

    A lot of explanantion but just want to clarify, when you say “transfer” did you mean you made WP work as a stand-alone site?

    Thanks

    Fabulous work with the plugins… you might want to configure a “real estate package” yourself (the plugins, customized the way you’ve tweaked them, giving credit, et al. of course) now that you’ve worked with them and hand that baby out on your site… I know a lot of people have been trying to figure out how to work a real estate site this way, and by golly you’ve done it! 🙂

    Beautiful work… just great!

    well done! Would love to see some sort of real estate plug-in available —
    kudos

    I would also like to see a car classified plugin. Is there one that I just don’t know about yet?

    I would love to see a great real estate plugin. I am in the process of building a site that is sort of like rent.com or something like that. I’d like to take it a step further and make it so that realtors, apartment owners, etc. can post listings, if that makes sense.

    Wow… haven’t checked this thread in a while… didn’t know so many were interested. I’m planning on working on a step by step instruction and/or all-in-one plugin. Keep checking back at http://www.zurnet.com

    CHANGE…. the website is now … Gammon Realty Group. I will be updating Zurnet more frequently about how to customize your blog to become a real estate listing site.

    Nice Work.

    Hi all – I was able to take a number of the tactics that zurdog used, including his excellent explanation of the use of the get-meta plugins, to build this site, with the idea in mind of creating a highly-automated CMS for real estate agents that’s simple, easy to use, and operates in a blog format to take full advantage of RSS capabilities.

    You can see it here: http://www.william-donovan.com/real/realtor

    I think it definitely shows how far you can flex WordPress to work as a CMS.

    You’ll notice I had to use multiple single-page templates and multiple comment-templates – To that end, I was able to turn WP’s comment interface into a mini-referral system in the back end (which works great because of the WHOIS data). For that I had to eliminate WP’s requirement of a message, but it was pretty easy to find.

    I also used a pretty nifty hack I wrote for the fold_page plugin that creates a “kaleidoscopicing” effect for static-page navigation (if you’re wondering, I’ve also written this to work with “pretty” permalinks):

    <?php
    global $wp_query;
    
    if( empty($wp_query->post->post_parent) ) {
    $parent = $wp_query->post->ID;
    $parent_title = $wp_query->post->post_title;
    } else {
    $parent = $wp_query->post->post_parent;
    $parent_title =
    $wpdb->get_var("SELECT post_title FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE ID = $parent");
    }
    ?>
    
    <h2>
    
    <li class=<?php if (empty($wp_query->post->post_parent ) )  { ?> "page_item current_page_item"<?php  } else { ?>"page_item"<?php } ?> >
    <!--<?php bloginfo('wpurl'); ?> This is usually not necessary-->
    <a href="?page_id=<?php echo apply_filters('the_title', $parent); ?>">
    <?php echo apply_filters('the_title', $parent_title);?></a></li>
    </h2>
    
    <?php wswwpx_fold_page_list ("&sort_column=menu_order&title_li=&child_of=$parent"); ?>

    Finally, I customized a number of plugins, especially the SEO all_in_one, search_everything, DD’s awesome contact form, site map, and AddSig plugins, the myGallery and myFlash plugins, the backup plugin, and of course, as I expect the several agents already lined up to use this template to do most of their own inputing of data, the fantastic custom_admin_menu, dashboard_management, and barruno_theme plugins.
