myRealPage WordPress plugin utilizes the power of WordPress “shortcodes”: special placeholders which are dynamically turned into useful content by the WordPress rendering engine. Our plugin comes bundled with a very flexible and powerful Listing Shortcode Wizard which will help you create all sorts of listing configurations, including functional and visual options, such as custom width for the listing content, basic color theme, custom sort order, and much more. The Listing Shortcode Wizard also includes a Preview button to make sure you got your configuration right.
Use the Shortcode Wizard to include such listing content as:
- Your and your office listings, including your listings optionally split by status and custom defined categories, as well as combined with other hand-picked listings
- Any predefined search, on its own or combined with hand picked listings
- A number of hand-picked listings which you can look up in Shortcode Wizard by MLS® numbers
- An individual listing, including specifically details, photo, video or map view (great for building single property websites)
- A standard or custom configured search form
We have also bundled out-of-the-box support for twentyten theme which comes as the default theme in new WordPress versions, as well as Thesis 1.8 theme which appears to be one of the more popular ones out there. If you are CSS-savvy or work with a designer or developer, you can also adapt this plugin to work with other themes: read more on our technical blog.
We have also published a full HOW-TO on the installation and use of the plugin on our Tech Blog.
Here are some screenshots of the myRealPage WordPress plugin in action on our demo website with Thesis 1.8 theme:
