The latest release of WP Property Drive –
3.9 – has been baking for 3 months, and has finally seen the last of day. There are lots of interesting features and the usual bug fixes.
Let’s see what we have.
If you are using featured properties on a regular basis, you will be happy to know that they appear first on any property grid, regardless of date or status. For example, if you want 3 properties for sale to always appear first on your Sales page, switch this option on.
Another useful feature, mostly for agents uploading properties directly into WordPress (bypassing importers) is the new Media Manager button for the block editor. Some functionality in WP Property Drive requires images to be attached (not inserted) to properties. Then, in the front-end, they are displayed as a carousel. However, the old Add Media button is not available in the block editor.
Images can easily be attached to any property by using the Manage Media button. Property images can be uploaded, deleted and re-ordered instantly.
Other notable features and fixes (see the WP Property Drive changelog for more) are:
3 new property importers have arrived. They are usually implemented on demand, as there are lots of different feed providers and feed formats. If you need a specific one, get in touch.
Mostly for 4Bids, a new, native email template is now baked into the plugin. No need for additional plugins to manage user emails. Also, an Invoice section is now available, so agents can instantly see past invoiced properties and properties to be invoiced at the end of the month. Note that only properties with one or more offers are now being invoiced. A very important privacy feature has now been completed – document uploads have been refactored to completely skip the Media Library for temporarily storing document attachments.
WP Property Drive is now expanding, and international feeds are available. A new
country parameter is available for the property grid.
The entire list of changes is available below:
Maybe it’s time your estate agent website had a faster frontend!
Using technologies such as WordPress, Lighthouse, Persistent Object Caching and bleeding-edge server software, it’s now easier than ever!
