Best Practices

Even if you are already familiar with WordPress, and feel like skipping the entire theme documentation, please make sure to follow at least the best practices listed below to prevent/solve the most common theme issues.

Permalinks Settings
Go to  Settings > Permalinks, select “post name” and click “Save Changes”.
Property Search Doesn’t Work Every field type of your property search under  Appearance > Theme Options > Property Search must have a “Unique Search Parameter” (all lowercase letters, no empty spaces).
Property Search Goes To Blog Page Make sure to assign a "Property Search Results Page" under Appearance > Theme Options > Pages.
Assign Front Page And Blog Posts Go to  Settings > Reading > Front page displays, select “A static page” and choose your pages.
Assign Menu Location Go to  Appearance > Menus, scroll down to “Menu Settings and select “Main Menu” under “Theme locations”.
Property Images Minimum dimension for any property image is 600×300 pixel. Recommended width of 1600 pixel and max. size of 200 KB.
Select A Profile Picture When selecting a profile picture from your WP admin area make sure to select “Full Size” image.
Don’t Edit Theme Code Directly Do not edit any of the theme core files directly, as all your changes will be lost when updating the theme. Use a  child theme for all your code changes.
