lulu, it depends what IDX you use whether or not you can use a property slider.
Which IDX?September 23, 2014 at 6:00 am in reply to: Is It Possible To Add Slider At Top Of AgentPress 3.1.1 #125412This reply has been marked as private.
Without looking in their plugin I would being by saying the properties is a custom post type. The custom post type has a parameter that makes it queryable. Thus, it should show up when you use the search field that comes default with wordpress.
If it isn't, then you would have to modify the plugin for that parameter. Every time the plugin gets updated, your code would be lost.
Are you a Realtor or a Designer? You should use this guy roveridx.com
He has a plugin, and it has the markup built for studio presses agentpress theme. The old theme and the new one. Tell him Joseph sent you. I can help you get the plugin installed if you want. It integrates with agent press and has allt he properties on the mls brought to your website, instead of you having to update each property you want to show.
Where can I find documentation on filters?
I don't know why this exists if no one knows! 🙂July 12, 2014 at 10:18 pm in reply to: How to install Genesis Framework and Themes from a Mac #114111
A better solution is to get rid of the Mac.
Oh very nice. Thanks.
Good advice. I read that article one time. It's been awhile since I deployed a genesis site w/o a front page blog.
Google speed test even notes the server responds slowly.
The setting in WordPress > Reading Settings > Number of Posts still works.
Doug, in my experience with Godaddy they prevent websites from doing a lot of things. They even prevent you from using php mail functions. So if you host WP on their server, sometimes wp_mail doesn't work. So plugins that have mail functions stop working from time to time.
Otherwise Godaddy isn't as bad as people say it is.
Studiopress has a caching program too by the way. On their web hosting platform. They have some special functionality with w3tc.
I don't think there is a serious concern for security with w3tc. If there were, it would be common knowledge. That blog post is a little secure and google doesn't reveal anything too obvious. I mean w3tc is like 4rth most downloaded plugin on wordpress.
I don't cache with w3tc anyways. I make too many site changes, lol. I do however use it for minifying my css/js from the few plugins I run.
It has other valid uses. Not everyone (sadly) include their files as //. Some people use http:// which prevents the website from being used in face book apps (iframes). The plugin will mop up all the unsecure resources and deliver them to the site in https:// if it's being requested.
I like that. I do a lot of Facebook apps.
It sounds like you are using a shared host. GoDaddy?
Doug, do you own http://discover-your-customers.com?
Are you the SEO?
wmwebdes, what site are you doing a write up for?
The site title is not in the Genesis settings.
It's in the wordpress dashboard. Go to Settings (at the bottom) then General. It's at the top.
You will see Site Title and Tag Line.
It looks like you are building back links right now. I hope you really need help and are not just pulling people along wasting their time with a cheap attempt to get back links from the forum.
Wouldn't surprise me.
I was in a rush. In case you didn't understand... A browser has to PAUSE to download JS and CSS files when it see's them. Putting them in the bottom of the site lets the site load so humans don't see the pause. This is never bad unless the MAIN css file is in the bottom of the site, because then the browser would download (really fast) a lot of html and make the site look bad, then all of sudden when the site downloads the css it would correct it all.
It's unlikely you would even notice unless the client was lagging. Rendering is that fast these days, but it's best practice to put the MAIN css file in the <head> of the site (at top). So that browsers first learn how to put the site together, before putting it together.
Hey Doug, you can't fix it but some plugins can help.
Let me explain what is happening.
When a page loads in a browser, it goes from top to bottom. With a theme (no plugins) you will have a single css file in the <head> of the site. That css file is styles.css. WordPress requires it. It's where your theme's styles are. It needs to always be in the top. What happens when the page loads is that the browser has to download that file before it renders anything on page. Now you may never notice this because it's so fast, but when you download a lot of plugins and each plugin author has his own css style sheet being loaded in to the wp_head hook... You get a very slow site. Why? Because the browser has to load all of those style sheets! Six is bad... Seven is worse. The browser can load 6 files at a time. So adding one to your six would drastically reduce performance.
What you need to do is speed that site up! The things you can do to make the site faster and score over a 90 on a speed test (besides not having a crappy server) is reduce how many files (css and js) you are including, compress (minify) those files, and compress your html.
This will help you compress your html: http://www.feedthebot.com/pagespeed/enable-compression.html
For the minification, wordpress actually has native support that few plugin programmers avoid using even if they don't know they are using it. The script/style enque method is annoying to devs but it actually has a reason... There are various plugins that will take all of your style sheets and combine them in to ONE style sheet, then minify it. Same for JS (oh and it hooks to the </body> even if the original file was in the <head>. It stops the css/js from blocking rendering.
This is one of the most popular plugins that does that:
The paid version isn't necessary. One thing to know about these type of plugins is this... if you are messing with your theme's CSS/html/php (templates etc...) then you want to turn the plugin off. Because the plugin will remember the scripts/resources and not render them new. It makes it faster to work from local memory instead of redownloading the resources. Which if you altered... you wouldn't see the changes you made.
I hope this helps.
Were you guys using this theme for a real estate website or something else all together?
I don't see the older agentpress theme in my downloads area.
I think if I can find it, I am going to rebuild it html/mobile friendly. Maintain it for the community.
I was upset about the change because I had an IDX plugin that I sell for realtors that plugs seamlessly in to the agentpress theme that adapts to their css.
The new theme changed the html markup and looks like crap. lol
sdbroker, what I would love to see is a Genesis - Bootstrap version. With all bootstrap markup.
Anyhow, I am disappointed in their themes. WooThemes is vastly outproducing Studiopress in quality and quantity. Look at their themes, they are entirely unique in CSS and JS. Many have custom images to make the themes different. Studiopress never utilizes images, just css. So they can put it out faster and the site ends up looking identical to another site.
Played out 🙁
I actually stopped producing on Genesis because I wasn't proud to say "go to studiopress.com and pick a theme and I will set it up for you." I kept getting clients say, all of those themes are the same.
