  3. RETS PRO version 4.1.0 - Beta Testing

    After doing a ton of testing everything we think this is getting close enough to go ahead and make this release this week - - - - - - There will be an extra step in the "upgrade" of this version from any previous version. So unless this version is a "new install" please follow the following steps to ensure you have got the 2 db tables upgraded as needed. Go ahead and upgrade plugin first. Then deactivate Plugin Then delete the following (2) db tables [wp_realty_searchfavorite] + [wp_realty_active_mls_number] (no worries - they are not going to break anything when deleted) Then delete our config file located within the root (typically within this path -> public_html/wpradmin/config.php (Note* be sure you're Not deleting your wordpress "wp-config.php" ...you'd be surprised at how often people fail to read.) Reactivate the plugin and now it will re-create the 2 deleted table to be correctly updated We will be working on the clean and automated db updater for the next release. In the meantime we want everyone to be able to get things rolling right away with this newest version. We plan on rolling out only code/file changes over the next several versions and we want to make sure everyone is upgraded properly - Note* again this is only for those that needed to upgrade from a previous 4.0.5+ to 4.0.9 and if you started with this 4.1 as your first version then you can ignore the above steps.
  4. As of this post we are currently Beta testing our new 4.1.0 version. So far we have eliminated all but (1) tiny - globally injected script in the footer needed for saving fav's/ and tracking purposes. We have also moved the registration template form into the default template folder so that you can customize it anyway you want. We are testing out the newest changes to Listing alerts to make sure that the cron jobs are only sending alerts based on what the customer has configured and once that is complete then we will be creating new video documentation on all of the above. In addition to the above items we have also found a few other minor bug items over the past few weeks that are getting sorted out prior to this release - such as shortcode Stats not working when tied into a remote master db and fixing our RETS photo downloader to include a few other image type/names other than just the few defaults that most RETS provider currently use. ================================ Once the above is released then we are immediately diving into more integrations with our favorite CRM - x2crm - We will also include some step by step How-To's for converting Gravity Forms to also work with x2crm for those that are interested on how that is done. Here are few items we will be working on with the 4.1.1 release New admin panel option to easily tie-in x2crm into your Wordpress site. New check box to enable our registration forms to also add contacts into x2crm as a "new contact". Option to add x2crm tracking code to all emails sent from our system. (listing alerts etc.) In addition to the above we have outlined another important step for our RETS tool. Adding in a new check box for any secondary RETS data feed to auto generate a new set of tables. Adding in a new option in our shortcode builder to detect when more than one RETS ID's are present to then force a pre-select of either ID or "All" prior to showing the rest of the shortcode options - this is going to be needed to prevent human/agent errors and to also speed-up the shortcode builder when there are multiple RETS feeds in a single website. The above multi-table option is really needed for customers who have many offices all over the state/country and or when people want to add sold data. This will not only make everything much cleaner and faster in the back end but also on the front end where shortcodes can simultaneously query multiple tables versus all data from a single table that can then get bottlenecked.
  5. Version 4.0.8 - Has now been Released as Version 4.0.9 as of today Primary Patch fixes include: Fixed CREA - RETS cleanup script. Fixed RETS image downloader that was only allowing (1) image per listing. Fixed Field Formatting Settings from showing fields with 0-zero as the value. Fixed Search form remote-db connection to include auto-suggest (was never connected for some reason). Fixed Short code builder issue with "count" value. Updated default template files and libraries to work with latest php-versions. Many other minor items were also fixed such as replacing more old WP Realty wordings to RETS PRO etc. Coming Soon: Finishing off anything related to our current (default) template files. New changes to our Admin Menu. Move hard coded register/login popup template into the default/customer template folder to allow customization. Removing all globally inserted header/footer css/ajax/js etc. and only calling them when and where they are actually needed on pages that contain our code - this is being done in order to provide a better SEO score and speed throughout your wordpress website. Clean up all backend UI templates. Adding in New RPxCRM integration options to tie in API within our Admin/CRM Menu. Adding in new template selector and field selector (probably only Menu/Page placeholders in this next release.) Add in options for Gutenburg for shortcode embed button and new template blocks. Add Session checker that pops up warning if session has timed out. Add new option to create secondary listingsdb table for mapping sold data so not to commingle both within main db (view google-docs). 2019 Road Map: Fix Search form to load skeleton only and make each field wrapper to only load values when clicked into focus. (makes forms instant-load) Add new option to create secondary listingsdb table for mapping sold data so not to commingle both within main db (view google-docs). Make all our bootstrap templates stay within container (view google-docs). Full integration leads and user sync with RPxCRM Add in new Alerts as well as new installers closable to-do-list - all added to the top of Wordpress Admin area. much much more...but these are the top of the list items that we are sharing atm. What's NEXT? - RETS PRO version 4.1 is already in the works right now and we will be focusing on our coming soon items 1-5. This next follow up release will be coming out very soon (less than 2 weeks) as we are focusing on cleaning up our Registration Form for Listing Alerts and the customers saved LA settings. We're also focusing on code cleanup for better speed and SEO scores with this next pending release. *Note - Everyone will notice that in this latest version that it will once again prompt you for your license key - Simply login to your RETS PRO client area and grab your license key and apply - If you have moved your site to another host and or domain name then simply re-issue your license key again and reapply and it should work as we have been testing this prior to this release to ensure there will be no issues with the key enforcements. License Key Reminder - Developers License is non-restricted usage. Basic+Plus License is unlimited domains and only IP-locked. Basic License is locked to a Single Domain and no Subdomains are allowed. How to upgrade from really old versions to new version. If you are upgrading from 4.0.7 or 4.0.8 then you won't have to do anything other than allow plugin to update via the normal plugin updater within wordpress. However if you are on anything older than that then you should open a support ticket and provide us with all of the login info so that we and perform the update for you as we have different procedures that are needed for really old versions and if you're running a non-supported 3x version then we do charge our 1-hr rate to do that upgrade at this point.
  6. We have been testing this week with php7.2x and everything seems to work just fine other than out listing details image slider. SO we are looking to see if that can be updated and if not then we are going to replace it with a new different 3rd party slider. This compatibility issue will sorted out and then made be part of our next 4.0.8 - so if you are reading this and we are already at 4.0.8 or higher then you should be fine with running php7.2x but until then please roll back or maintain at no higher than php7.1x versions Please also - NOTE* As previously stated and will probably remain this way due to what we have to have in our New tables when plugin gets activated - All mysql 5.7 or mariadb 10.3 or newer databases all default to include Strict-Mode which MUST be disabled prior to installing our plugin. If you're on a managed hosting platform with any of the top hosting providers then you will not need to alter that since they already disable - BUT - if you're doing a DIY VPS hosting or dedicated server then you will need to make sure that you disabled this prior to installing out plugin.
  7. Demo SItes?

    Hello Marie, Thanks you for the kind words and to quickly answer the question(s) - I forwarded you a few live sites via PM, as to a public login demo site I can only say that we will have one that you can login to with us via Skype = RETS PRO. Otherwise we're currently working on our current demo link that I sent you that will soon show everything on the front end via live-examples along with the code formatted outputs to show [shortcodes] or {smarty conditionals} used to achieve the examples shown. Due to all the lockdowns required for a login type demo site we're not planning on getting to that until we have at least completed our new crm feature integrations first. Be sure to call us if you want to do a live login together via Skype - and welcome to the forums! (btw - I know I answered this already in the PM, but I thought I should also answer it here as well since others may have the same questions.) :)
  8. Demo SItes?

    Hello RETS PRO, I have watched a lot of the videos on your youtube channel and your product looks AMAZING! The question I have though is there a live demo site somewhere? I'd like to either login and play around if possible or perhaps links to some live sites? Oh, and are there any coupon codes or specials now or in the near future? Thanks in advance!
  9. New 4.0.7 version is available for download as well as auto update. There are 2 ways to upgrade: 4.06 to 4.0.7 #1 Normal plugin update via plugin updates within Wordpress Plugin Admin panel. *(recommended if upgrading from 4.0.6) #2 FTP instructions below (always make a complete site backup first either way) *(recommended if upgrading from 4.0.5) NOTICE - IF - You are updating from 4.0.5 or older you should probably have us to the update for you - open a support ticket with login information and someone will be happy to handle this as our schedule allows (can't do everyone at the same time ). FTP Method - As always -> Make your backups! First you will want to deactivate the older 4x version. Next rename the old plugin folder and or move it out of the plugin directory. Next unzip and ftp upload new version to plugin directory. Next take the following files from the unzipped folder and ftp overwrite to your-domain.com/wpradmin a. wp-realty/core/index.php - the index.php file is copied over to your-domain.com/wpradmin/index.php b. Optional is to also take and copy over the core/template/default – but not required – although you will most likely want to look over the newer map template located within the wp-realty/core/template/default/Modules/MapSearch/ We are currently working on the following within this 4.0.7 version: In this release you will see that we are now adding in a blue question mark (?) “Tool-Tips” throughout the plugin that will help to provide instant explanations and examples as well as direct links to our KB articles and or videos for expanded descriptions and explanations. (more of these will be coming with each new release). CHANGELOG 4.0.7 Fixed RETS to include open-house class data imports. Fixed Shortcode builder polygon maps issue. Fixed Maps Search polygon as well as preloader and added new limit settings. Fixed Shortcode builder showing non-used fields in output. Fixed Missing email templates table. Added New in-line tooltips for search form builder (a lot more tooltips coming soon). Fixed ability to include manually uploaded listings with independant image sources as well. A ton of minor cosmetic items (a lot more coming). ==== And last of all ... We are working on NEW hosting options and services for everyone - why? ...well from what we have seen over the 10+ years of doing this is that there seems to be a huge desire to DIY and OWN your code etc. - BUT - what we have found out along the way is that there are very few customers that have all of the required skill sets to do all of the things needed. Now offering the following options. (All of these are optional - you can always DIY everything yourself on your own hosting provider.) DIY-Hosting - Starting @ $20 per month....all the way to Dedicated Server. We just provide you with a RETS compatible hosting service that's geared towards Heavy RETS/Data usage. Managed - Starting @ extra $20 per month on top of your selected hosting package. We automatically take care of all your Wordpress/Plugin/Theme updates as well as manually take care of any RETS management/changes tweaks. (This is per single-site and single-RETS-feed and any "required" RETS changes needed will only be done per your forwarding to us the emails from the provider as there is no way for us to know what is needed otherwise.) Managed VIP - @ extra $100 per month (Available Jan. 1st - Contact us for more information.) Same as the above Managed - but we also include our own custom version of the X2CRM as well as a few other commercial plugins that we use. Also includes "Live" 1-on-1 consulting with you for up to (2-hrs) per month to help you to achieve your SEO goals as well as Lead/Marketing campaign management. All of the details and examples will be linked to on our website soon! This Managed group will also benefit from our beta testing of our New SEO/SEM Automated SEO content and Social Media Marketing tools. The value here goes well beyond the extra cost per month when you have automated task getting done and team of experts to lean on every month. ================================= Anyone interested in the New VIP hosting packages please give us a call @ 888-540-9666 as we are already transferring several older customers over to this new platform that's publicly available Jan. 1st. ================================= What's in store for our upcoming versions? (Here are a few bullets on what we are planning:) New Gutenburg Template Blocks!... as well as a few other related items. New UI for selecting templates i.e Listing Details, Search Results, Map Search etc. UI for matching up RETS fields to main template fields i.e beds, baths, price, sqft, etc etc. Adding in UI for Social Media signup/sign-in Fix Search Page to only load the search field wrappers and not load their data until clicked on (this will make search page load instantly) Isolate all our Bootstrap calls (something we are already working on to prevent 3rd party template/theme css conflicts) Testing with X2CRM user sync and web data tracking ( We have been testing X2CRM for about 7 months and love it! ) Have a great NEW YEAR! Cheers!
