Taken over by TRIBUS
By , for WP 4.2.3

The team at TRIBUS has taken over development and the assets of Displet. We have vastly improved support which you can get now via Helpdesk.TRIBUSgroup.com or by calling 312 957 8846 (keep in mind support is only for paying clients).

In the past year we've done the following:

  • We get updates from all MLSs every 15 minutes now
  • We upgraded serving of properties to respond to up to 10 properties with photos in less than 1/3 of a second
  • We've added a feature exclusive to us - Collaborative Search allowing spouses to look for homes together and be notified when they both like a home
  • We've added countless field options to the API allowing developers to get far more out of the plugin
  • And we're investing heavily into making a broker specific version of the plugin. Please contact us if you need anything or would like to find out more.

8 months and no updates!

Might want to look for a product that has more active support.

Can't disable ""Email to a Friend" feature, which is currently responsible for upwards of 1,400 SPAM messages a day. This needs to be addressed.

Displet might be good, but I cannot get them to even respond to me or process my order for their pro version plugin. Was going to run their plugin on about 10 sites, but they have lost my business today by not responding at all. You will likely become frustrated by their complete lack of communication, like I am. It's hard to use your plugin if you won't even take the time to sell it to me. Goodbye Displet, hello dsIDX...

Displet Custom WordPress Website & IDX Plugin Never Worked
By , for WP 3.9.1

Our real estate firm hired Displet in Novmeber 2013 to design and build a custom WordPress website using their IDX Plug-in. The project was quoted at $8K and 30 to 60 days time.

Nine months later and an additional $12,000 in payment, we have a website that was never completed, we were build for work that was either never done, or work that had to be re-done by our own web team. We have hundreds of screen shots of their shoddy work

In testing the Displet WordPress IDX plugin over three months, we found it was simply not reliable and their customer service was mostly double talk. Time after time thousand of MLS listings for our region just disappeared. DIsplet support kept telling us "sorry we did some updates and those thousands of listings should come back in about 24 hours."

Next photos of MLS listings started disappearing. Thousands of them simply vanished with the same response from Displet.

After 9 months of frustration we've had to hire another web development company to take over this project, and we will be using another IDX plugin.

We are a $60M real estate brand in the Palm Springs market and we've built dozens of successful websites so this is not our first time at the rodeo. I've been doing high-level marketing for four decades, but I've never had to take legal action before.

We are now proceeding with legal action against Displet and it's double talking owner, Eric Bramlett.

Be very careful if you decide to work with Displet.

Be very careful if you decide to work with Displet.

I downloaded the free version of the Displet wordpress plugin for real estate listings to test it out, as the company suggests. I was very impressed. I installed it and configured it. All was going well.

However, when I purchased the paid version, which is required to get current available properties for sale, I ran into problems.The plugin was not pulling photos for the newest units, nor was it displaying map results. Also, the daily email of new properties for my saved searches was sending milliion-dollar houses no matter what my preferences were.

For several weeks, I ask repeatedly about when this would be fixed and they would never provide an answer. Nor would they provide a quick code workaround to hide the listings without images until they solved the problem.

They told me to sort the listings by cheapest to most expensive, but their plugin allows shoppers to sort by newest, so I didn't consider this to be an acceptable alternative.

In short, their service has three major issues that I couldn't have discovered until I bought the monthly subscription.
1. Pictures for new listings in GA were not available.
2. The google map didn't work for new listings.
3. The daily email sends million-dollar homes to users who save searches, no matter what their saved preferences are.

For a real estate website, pictures are hugely important. And sending million-dollar homes to people who can't afford them is just embarrassing. But from their response, it seems as though they just didn't care.

When I asked for a refund, I was told they don't offer refunds because they allow you to test out the plugin before you buy the service. However, the problems I had with the service couldn't have been found until AFTER I paid for it.

Fantastic Product. A+++

I'm so glad that I found this plugin. I installed it and had my IDX up and running in less than 5 minutes. I've spent a lot of time customizing the settings, of which there are a ton. I've tried 3 other IDX companies, and this is by far the best.

Awesome

Works as advertised and easy to setup. It has conversion tools I couldn't find anywhere else. I wish I could give it 6 stars.
