For us, there’s nothing more important than building strong relationships with our clients. And the holidays are the perfect time to share our gratitude and warm wishes with the people who have been doing business with us for all year long.  Our way of thanking you for a wonderful 2014 is to offer you version 1.08.

The most important additions are listed below:

  • Option to enable/disable the Auto-Complete address in Frond End Submission Form;
  • New features for Advanced Search: Save parameters, the URL matches the search performed, saved  filters on the Advanced Search Results page;
  • Featured Agent Widget;
  • New features for Recent Items shortcode: random order for properties and select category IDs for blog posts;
  • Edit Facebook share to select an image from property attached images.

Faster Site Speed with the option “Read Google Maps Pins from File”

For the best speed results when using thousands of properties on the map, we integrated the following feature as part of the core theme: read Google Maps property markers directly from a file (and not from Google Maps API)

This option is enabled/disabled from Theme Options.

Front End Submission Form with Drop-downs for City, Area, and State

In WP Residence 1.08 we added a new option for submission form: choose between typing the address and selecting City, Area and State from drop-downs, or to use Google Maps Auto-complete.

Admin will be able to enable/disable auto-complete address from the back end.

New Features for Advanced Search

Starting v 1.08, we added the following new features will be available on Advanced Search results page:

  • Save search parameters on the search results page. When a search is performed, the Advanced Search saves the search criteria and keeps it visible in the search form.
  • The Advanced Search results page URL matches the search performed.  As many of our customers asked, we changed the URL for Advanced Search Results page to be dynamic.
  • Soft filters on the Advanced Search Results page. The results of the search can be sorted by Default order (Featured first, recent date next) Price Low to High or Price High to Low
  • Properties in search results can be displayed as a list or grid.

Featured Agent Widget

As asked by many of our dear clients, we have added a new widget: Featured Agent. It works with agent post ID and you can use it on any of the available sidebar

Recent Items Shortcode – Random Order

We have added two new features to the Recent Items shortcode:

  • The option to order properties post randomly on page refresh or leave it default order (featured first, by date next);
  • The option to filter blog posts by category ID

Recent Items Shortcode – Random Order

Before this update, Facebook was sharing a random picture from the page where the share was clicked. Now the share includes an image from the property attached images.

Note that Facebook has a caching system. If the image does not appear, a page refresh will work for sure.
