#4181 New Release Update Information:

Posted by RETSPRO on 09 January 2017 - 09:14 PM

I spent the weekend working with the old server that had all of the RETSPRO.com data on it I was able to recover everything - Thank you all for being patient and I will try to import the latest threads over to this forums this week - but first for an announcement.

 

What's the plan for 2017?

 

First of all - Version 3.1.2 
Mike is currently working on the next release to include the following upgrades:

  1. HTTPS - almost completed
  2. php.7 - already fixed
  3. mysql strict mode compliant - this week
  4. new UI panel for adding option to push child-site-db into master-parent-db (for people needing to join multiple-db's into 1-single-master-db)
  5. some bug fixes missed from last release 

After the 3.1.2 release Mikes working to get the Listings Alerts and Forced registration modules released -

 

========================

New 4x version coming soon - 

========================
I have outlined a new 4x version a few months ago and I have been rehashing things for several weeks with Dinesh and Mike and we will be moving forward next week with the beginning of a major overhaul of our current version and thought I should share whats coming with everyone.

To start with we will be converting the current Admin template into a much more robust Admin template - one that will allow us to incorporate all of the latest greatest and much more expandable to handle all of the cool features I want to bring into the Admin area like a custom drag drop dashboard with leads, charts, stats etc

 

Next we are going to rewrite the worst part of the current plugin which is our search form builder so that its a default responsive swiss army knife of options with easy to customize css layout w/ ajax options etc. -  so no-more custom hand editing required...unless you just want to.

 

Next we are going to upgrade RETS module to include a couple of more in-line features - such as adding custom pricing formatting to any selected fields as well as converting those pesky Y/N fields that RETS push 0/1 as the values back into a Y/N value ....and a few other items Dinesh wants to update.

Next we are going to get all of the templates and modules/feature extensions all into one place so that its nice and neat expansion of our current file/template/module manager and will give you a FTP/custom file editor option as opposed to having things in 2 places like we currently have.

=======================================================================

UPDATED - added this screenshot Feb-10th to show everyone progress on the 4x version
=======================================================================

======================

Now what about a CRM?

======================

I'm seriously considering taking the UPICRM plugin from http://www.upicrm.com/ and forking parts of it into a new CRM module - Dinesh/team are looking it over to see if its worth forking or just using what we've already started on......but either way its coming and already put into the 1st quarter budget.

 

I can also tell everyone that prior to the new CRM release we will be adding in to our UI the option to push all user registrations into the Wordpress user_db table instead of ours so that everyone can take advantage of all of the Wordpress users options that other plugins can help you to enhance customer build outs that request using 3'rd party plugins like mailchimp - constant contact etc

 

and what about the ETA? .....as long as it takes....should see new Admin Template showing up within about 4-6 weeks and everything other than new CRM should be completed within 60-90 days.

Anything missing? I'm sure I've forgot to mention a few things but feel free to chime in below as I will be moving this thread to regular forums section as soon as we make the 3.1.2 release.

 

Cheers!

#4097 RETS PRO 3.1.1 Released and ready to download!

Posted by RETSPRO on 20 October 2016 - 03:15 PM

RETS PRO 3.1.1 - now available for download ....and just to be clear this is mostly a code patch needed to fix some minor bugs and to hook in newest features.

 

The downloadable version and the auto-update version will both install as the same way as all previous versions.

 

There are some new default template files (located in the plugins /templates/default/) that were added/edited that will be needed if you want to include some of the latest features - but first I need to wrap up the css on the compare listings module that I will be uploading by tomorrow night and I will be updating this post with information and videos on how to do all of the above by this weekend if not sooner so everyone can get started playing with the "new-stuff".

Super busy doing customer projects so hopefully I can get to the how-to videos sometime on Friday.

 

Updates in this version include:

  • Cleaned up some css and buttons in the Admin panel/UI.
  • Fixed a few more bugs.
  • Added in code for being able to add new UI panel for tying in multiple RETS db's into one master db while each one still using remote images (super cool and will be in the next release).
  • More code was added that's getting us closer to Listing Alerts module release.
  • Tested and made sure this all works with the new shortcode w/new maps shortcode template.

 

Overall this is a really good version to upgrade too if you've been waiting to upgrade!

 

Stay tuned for more how-to video/documentation coming asap!

Cheers!

#3971 RETS PRO 3.1.0.a Released Today - Please Read!

Posted by RETSPRO on 25 September 2016 - 05:55 PM

This is a follow up to a lot more testing of last Fridays 3.1.0 release in which I discovered a critical error that required an immediate patch release - 

Mike has done so much code over these last few months that there hasn't been enough time to keep up with all of the required testing. I mean sure, things always "seem" to be fine until you go and pack everything up and then test it on new installs and upgrade installs and that's always when the fun starts.

 

In this release - 

  1. A few minor bug fixes but a couple of important ones such as the RETS data removal and other RETS file fixes.
  2. New embedded maps w/polygon shortcode template for embedding maps now within you community pages.
  3. Fixed similar listings shortcode to now auto exclude same listing as the current listing being viewed.
  4. Added polygon to main map search as well as fixed custom map pins to work with unlimited fields values.
  5. I'm pretty sure the compare listings is in this version as well.

( *Due to our extra long testing period of the beta 3.0.9 already installed on so many customers sites, we will be making this release as 3.1.0.a )

 

So now on to wrapping up and creating the new how-to videos for everyone  :)

 

==============================

Coming in our next release 3.1.1 -

  1. New option to push multiple rets dbs into single master db - and then all listings will follow their master db's photo settings - thus allowing us to join multiple db's while maintaining their custom image hot links - cool feature for those needing it - 
  2. Next up - Forced registration options - and hopefully our long awaited listing alerts!

#4342 New 4x Beta coming soon!

Posted by RETSPRO on 28 May 2017 - 05:15 AM

As we enter June we will be releasing our new 4x beta version to some of our chosen programmer/developer clients. They are ready and waiting to begin to help us with basic beta testing over the next couple of weeks to see if they can break anything and also give us professional feedback. I just finished mapping one of the worst RETS I've seen in a while using the new 4x version and I think I may have teared up when after completely mapping over 100+ fields and hiding over 100+ fields in the fires Residential Class, that everything was already 99% done when I opened each additional property class - was a huge time saver!

In the mean time we have already begun to work on the new 4x second phase that will include our own crm solution - We'll let you know more as we complete each new feature. ..........But in the mean time!

 

Feel Free to bypass our CRM entirely by simply tying in you favorite form builder into the UPICRM Plugin - then pre-route the leads with upicrm based on custom trigger to any accounts anywhere you want via its own push method - all done for FREE so no need to wait on us  ;)
 

Our own goals for this are more Pro-Realtor solution than just simple crm stuff as we want to fully integrate follow up automation options triggered by "time" AND "data" changes, complex lead routing options and auto drip campaigns. Looking to also auto poke users similar to zillow does etc.......basically all of the things that cannot be done with any of the 3rd party CRM stuff unless paying for it to be "custom done/integrated" by them, and then that's not going to be with out monthly fees either.  And yeah, we're definitely going to setup a page similar to how upicrm does so that we can auto-detect and map-in your favorite Wordpress form builders into our system as well.   

Our plan is to deliver an integrated solution that delivers everything that our own broker clients are wanting first, and yet still gives all of you a great starting point to build anything else custom that you want, as there is no-way to make everyone happy with all of the 3rd party options currently out there. Once we get past this year I would imagine all of next year will be nothing but new features and tying in all of the top 3'rd party options we can to continue to add value to the software.

That's the key difference between 3rd party versus all local solution is that there are always going to be pros and cons no mater what way you go but at least YOU can build ours into whatever you can dream up!  

We never got into the business of developing and selling RE software as our "main income" but instead it was developed out of a necessity to accomplish the Real Estate Website SEO projects for our own SEO company clients. - That said - What we build is still 100% based on what our own Broker/Company project clients ask, and pay, us to custom build for them. What we sell here on this website is then a by-product of that effort so that all other "web site developers and programmers" (key words there) can have their own starting point for their own custom project builds.

Have a great weekend!

#4361 New 4x Beta coming soon!

Posted by RETSPRO on 07 June 2017 - 03:35 AM

======================

** Update - Tue - 6/6/2017

======================

 

I've done over 15+ new 4x installs over the last 2-days and looks like we are getting ready to release this as a "beta" release by end of this week(end)!

 

*Notes with this first beta release - 

  1. It is NOT going to be an upgrade to your current 3x!  - Yet -  We will create an upgrade script "after" we complete all beta testing.
  2. This is NOT something you should start your own new project with unless you know how to assist with trouble shooting - thus "beta" status! - We can't help you troubleshoot your stuff until we have spent enough hands-on hours using the code ourselves.  We're currently only supporting the 4x for a handful of custom site projects we've taken on.
  3. This > IS < super cool to download and begin testing with! - I've really enjoyed testing and creating this new 4x version and now that the core is already 98.5 % there its time to share this with the rest of you guys to get some feedback -

 

I still need to do 3 things before this is released -

  1. Add 2 or 3 new setup videos to cover the basics -
  2. Add in some new in-line tool tips documentation examples - 
  3. Create a new 4x forums thread -

So ....Stay tuned!

#4148 wpengine

Posted by homesinpa on 08 November 2016 - 07:27 PM

I know - I tried. I have the Turbo one. Have 2-3 other clients on it too. You can chose the base one and upgrade from there. A good add-on is the railgun once you're live. That's a great tool. And if you get serious traffic, you can add on the performance bump too. We are working with them to get the memcached component working but that's been a plugin issue we're trying to resolve. Actually have their support working with us on it - very good team over there. Once that's done, I can share results with you in case you're interested in the future (that's the last think to worry about for your site).

 

Hope that helps.

#4028 CRM Module Availability

Posted by RETSPRO on 07 October 2016 - 04:09 AM

Yes - we hope to have the beta CRM released by the end of first quarter of 2017 - we only have a couple of feature modules to get done this month and then we will be spending rest of the year on getting a beta CRM released asap.

Yeah, not a fan of them either (for this type of site) because they limit certain types of caching, etc. Love their model BUT they control too much for a system like this from what I've discovered.

#3533 RETS PRO 3.0.7 Released and ready to download!

Posted by RETSPRO on 05 May 2016 - 03:24 PM

We have finally released the new 3.0.7 version.

I'll let Mike add some change log updates since I'm sure I've missed a few:

 

  1. Fixed issue with Wordpress-MU sub-directory core/path issues - something we were not aware of until recent project.
  2. Fixed issue with pagination when pagination # was less than listings retrieved was displaying error/notice.
  3. Fixed issue with RETS crons displaying errors/notices.
  4. Added Listing Alerts code to default template (more on that in upcoming how-to videos).
  5. Some other minor tweaks and code clean ups - (mainly related to templates).

Note** - All 3'rd party themes and plugin downloads have just been updated as of today 05/05/216 - 

(I am testing the new features modules today and will make them available later tonight in the downloads section)

 

And I'll let Mike fill in the rest of the updates below:

#2560 RETS PRO 3.0.4 Released and ready to download!

Posted by RETSPRO on 29 December 2015 - 03:17 AM

Our newest version 3.0.4 is available for download.. and I'm about to do a quick video for it in the morning - 

 

This version includes the New "Maps Module" and "Geo Code Module" already included within the plugin!

 

Although this has been thoroughly tested on a few of our own website(s)/project/servers, we would caution you to first work with this new version on a separate install so that you can test things out for yourself.

 

Since everyone is blowing up our phones and skype about when,when,when I've decided to go ahead and make this the release for version 3.0.4 - we're pretty happy with it since we're really only able to deliver a 95% "finished" styling/design to match everyone's RETS fields and or clients requirments, the remaining 5% of the work is up to > you < the developer(s)....this version however solves a lot of design options for people savvy enough to leverage it.

 

This release includes many bug fixes as well as some other new branding and styling changes but stay tuned for the video overview - ALSO - Note* if you have older version 3.0.3 it should already be available to auto update within the WP plugin's UI by tomorrow when I send out the email.

 

I know I shouldn't have to tell everyone this but I am anyway - Make A Backup First!

 

This first video covers a new install + shows it tied into remote db option

*I can typically do the entire setup process in less than 3 min when using a master db.

*After the 3 min setup is done - I also FTP drop in my own custom replacement template that I've already created that matches all of the current RETS fields - which I didn't mention in the video but I have an archive of different custom enfold template folders that already match the specific fields I used for each RETS provider I've previously mapped.
 

 

 

 

This video shows the upgrade and setting up the maps module and geo-code module.

*Although its a rather long video it should get the bulk of you upgraded with no issues of any kind - but - anyone with an older version ( 2.9.4 thru 3.0 ) you should open a ticket and or post here in the forums with your symptoms so I can diagnose the problem and provide you with additional steps that may be required to get the db's updated.

 

Cheers and Happy New Year!
