STRIPE Merchant for Paid Listing and Paid Membership
In WP Residence 1.07, additional to PayPal payments, we now support STRIPE merchant , which is for Credit card payments. Stripe can process CC payments in almost any currency and gives flexibility to users to pay on the fly, without them needing an extra account with a payment merchant, like PayPal.
We have added Stripe merchant for Paid Listings and for Paid Membership Packages.
There is an On/Off control for Stripe and Paypal merchants in Theme Options.
Also, the Admin is in full control of the payment methods. He can choose if he want use both, Stripe and Paypal or only one of them.

Submission Form Address Changed to Auto-Complete from Google Maps
Starting v 1.07 the submission form – address fields have modified. Now we have less fields and all of them can fill in based on the Address you select. The address uses Google Maps auto-complete. You have to start typing the address, and a dropdown with all possible options will display.
This will help users to fill in the address fields much more fast and it will help them to avoid the spelling mistakes.
If the address has too much information, or less, users can always type manually the details (as it was before)
This is a great update also for Admin, as new City and Area will be now added and linked automatically on property save. He will not need to fill in these details from wp-admin. Same applies for the new taxonomy added, County/State.
Forgot Password in User Menu and Login/Register Widget
Starting WP Residence v1.07 Forgot Password form exists in 2 new locations: header User Menu and in the Login/Register Widget.
Auto Scroll Option for the Recent Items Slider Shortcode
At our clients request the Recent Items slider (which you can use for Properties and Blog Posts) has a new settings: auto scroll control in seconds.
You can control the number of seconds from the shortcode settings. You can still choose no auto-scroll if that is your preference.

Property Unique ID in Advanced Search
Until version 1.07 we have offered support to add a field for Property ID in property page and Search which is filled in manually by Admin or user. Help – http://help.wpresidence.net/#!/searchidmanual
Our clients have asked us to create support for an automatic Property ID added on publish. With this version you have this option included in the Theme Options – Advanced Search custom fields. Help – http://help.wpresidence.net/#!/searchid
Added 1 New Category Taxonomy for Property State/County
From WP Residence V1.07 there is a new taxonomy for State/County. This list can be completed from admin area, or people add new counties/states when they submit properties and these are saved.
This new drop down for counties/states can be added in Advanced Search – Custom Fields.
Search with Auto-Complete for My Properties List (in User Dashboard)
If your users will have many properties submitted they will need a tool to easily search for a property from their user dashboard. For this reason we have implemented this auto-complete search in My Properties custom page template which applies only for the properties submitted by that user.
