    The saved search and email alert feature only works for registered users.
    Would it be possible that a visitor can receive email alerts by entering his/her emailaddress?

    Any idea how I could accomplish this? Any help would be much appretiated!

    I think this would be a brilliant function as not everybody wants to sign up as a user, but are happy to enter there email to receive regular updates.

    I wonder how we can modify the code in order to accomplish this.
    The logic for the email alerts is written in the events.php file.

    Any help on how I could realise this myself?

    Can I expect any form of support or should I figure this out on my own?
    I’m not sure what kind of support is included if one buys a theme from Themeforest.

    Thanks for clarifying this issue.

    I have brought a couple of themes from the developer and there support is brilliant.

    They will get back to us.

    Hi NiVanc and djshady,

    Thank you for the comments.

    If you wish to save people’s email to send them regular emails you need a newsletter plugin and let people subscribe (agree to terms and conditions) so they can also un-subscribe in case they change their minds. It’s something else than save search. A good plugin is Mail Chimp. They have their own email server, email templates – you’d do a good job with them, even if you may need to pay something extra.

    For SEARCH EMAIL ALERT and SAVE – we could only develop this for registered users (Zillow has the same). You’ll see this is the general technical direction to ensure people can see what searches they saved in user dashboard. So for sure people need to register.

    Perhaps there are usability ideas to add from here (how people register). We’re open to suggestions.
