Easily create and manage real estate sites powered by WordPress.
I just installed a clean version of WP 4.1.2 on WP Engine. I added the Total WP theme and 5 plugins that it uses. I also loaded a child theme creator plugin and created a child theme from Total so that I can play without losing changes with the next update of Total.
Then I searched for "placester" in the add new plugin admin page and added the "Real Estate Website Builder" plugin. But, when I activate the plugin my screen goes white and I cannot get back to my site by any means.
I had to go to my WP Engine dashboard and replace the site and database from a copy that I made just prior to installing placester.
I installed it twice and got the white screen of death both times.
I had high hopes for placester after watching the video. I am no longer plagued by those hopes.
UPDATE: Placester staff contacted me and offered to take a look at the problems. But, they never could figure out the issues. They calimed that they could not FTP into the site, with the same credentials that I use for it every day. Its a damned shame too, the offering looked quite good.
really hard to set up. Problems with image upload...
Per Placester support staff, updates from MLS are retrieved once per 24 hour period. They are working on making this more frequent. This contradicts their claim on this site that:
"RETS integrations available, <b>continuously updated</b> with you MLS."
Can only give this one star because the persistent activation nag prevented me from even starting to use this. Trying to activate just put me in a continuous loop of email checking that didn't get me connected or activated. Pretty stupid system - I might have been happy to part with cash for a good real estate solution, but not being able to even activate it is to try it out is nuts.
Horrible. Tried several times on my own wordpress site. Crashes your site, not compatible with responsive themes. Even when you use their own.
These plugins are of no use, placester is just wasting other's time.
