Home Control for Vantage

Live Demo

This plugin is only for the Vantage Theme home page.

The only idea behind the plugin to give new look to your website’s home page easily through a widget without any developer help. Most business listing websites have such listing views (listing & grid view) mainly for home page so we have decided to provide such features for users who can easily manage via plugin.

This plugin makes the Vantage theme home page widgetized and easy to set. The plugin creates a new page template which will make your home page widget ready controlled by the settings page from wp-admin > reading settings. Manage both home page content section and sidebar from the widget area.

If there is no sidebar set for the new home page, it will work with the default sidebar. The plugin will add two additional widgets for lists and events for normal listing & grid view. You can also use/drag-drop other suitable widgets like a text widget to show your content or as per your idea. On each grid listing you the mouse hover effect which show you details for that record for both lists & events.

See more home page display options ::

Plugin totally changed as per Vantage theme version : 4+.  So now normal listings and events section removed if you have installed vantage theme version 4+ or higher.

==> What is the plugin for?

(2)CSS style — vantage-newhome-style.css

If the file is not added you should add both files from plugins/home_control_vantage/templates/ to your theme root folder.

 

==> Why files not created/added in my theme?
Because of files/folder security problem, the plugin can’t able to transfer the files to your theme folder.

 

==> How to it’s working for wordpress multisite?
You can use the plugin for multiple site but as the plugin create page templates related files only once for main theme (current active theme), and if you are using more than one theme for multisite, like child theme , vantage original theme, you should check the root folder of all those themes and place the files manually. Please refer FAQ of product detail page for more details.

    Will your plugin work on a full-width homepage?

  • Daniel

    I have purchased the vantage theme and am in the process of creating my new directory business. My market is online businesses only so u am wondering how I can remove the “Near” text box from the search field at the top of the homepage. I only want the user to be able to search for type of business not near a specific location as that is not required as they are only searching for online companies. Will this plugin/add on be able to do this for me? Please help

  • luxor

    I see the plugin creates a homewidget class, is there a way to apply CSS changes to each section? If I have 2 homepage widgets, how do I apply css only to the top section?

    For example, the top is for sponsors while the 2nd homewidget are listings. I’d like to apply different colors to each…

    • luxor

      Also just noticed there’s no way to add a pagination? Is there a way to show visitors there’s more listings than what’s placed within the widget?

      I can add a “More Button” to the bottom but it would be nice to see a bunch of page numbers to psychologically show them the site has a lot of listings.

        wait…I’ve just purchased plugin ans saw that there is no pagination?how this is possible? Is it fixed? I can’t use it without this, my site is not only index page but dozen more pages. thank you

  • jamesmmcclure

    This doesn’t work if the images are the wrong size or the name the customer chooses when they sign up is too long. The boxes become oversized and you end up with missing boxes (listings) which makes the site look like it is broken or fake. Asked for a refund never got it!

      We control the grid view via widget so you should create widget area and display display where you want via widget.
      In our plugin we are creating page template to display. so you can follow the program code from that file. You can get more details about the files and all from readme.txt or plugin page.

    Dear,

    Is this plugin compatible with “WordPress Multisite (WPMU)”?

    Regards,
    André

    • author
      Vipul

      Yes the plugin is WPMU comparable because all the settings are related to widget & for each network site, widget area will be different. But make sure you may don’t have changed the plugin page template file added in the theme root folder.
      Refer more details about files added by plugin from readme.txt or plugin detail page.

      Thanks

        I intend to order this plugin because seems very interesting. Gives a new look for my site.

        I’d like to know 2 more things:
        1) Is it compatible with ACFCP (Advanced Custom Fields for ClassiPress)?
        2) How often do you deliver a new release when WordPress and/or ClassiPress are updated?

        Regards,

    Just wanted to make sure I paid for the your plugin and got the right file .

    • author
      Vipul

      yes i found that you have just paid for this plugin only. But the zip is not same. It should be home-control-vantage.zip .

      Please be careful while download, it may be mistake other wise let me know so I can ask for support team to have quick solution for that.

      Thanks

  • netmania

    Thank you. I see home-control-vantage.zip available in my account now.

  • gpetar

    When I am on category page,default vantage map is showing only listings from that category but currently I am getting all listings. Is there option to see same as default,only from that category?

      Hi gpetar,
      There is not the pagination feature for the current version of plugin. Our development team is under process to add new features. So you will get added the pagination sameway in new update. We are going to give update asap. This week or next week is sure.
      Regarding to icons, you should manage it from widget settings.

      We are also planing to add pintrest like listing. What is your suggestion for that?
      Thanks

      Thanks

      • bradleyhebdon

        Can you also make sure you do the following:

        – Test it and make sure it works on touch devices (it currently does not. When you touch a listing it opens the flyout, but you CANNOT tap in the flyout to get to the listing.) I submitted this bug months ago, but you ignored me.
        – Make sure it works with child themes, it currently does not either. The style breaks.

          I will confirm the problem with touchscreen, but related to child theme you should make sure it’s working ok as we have working on child theme development for that with a client.

          The only thing is whenever you active any new theme/child theme, you should place the two files (template php file & css file) manually OR deactive & active the plugin so it will automatically manage all.

          Thanks

      • gpetar

        without pagination, plugin is currently useless for big sites what have or planing big number of listings. I will have to ask for refund if there is no such option (that should be optional, of course)

        • author
          Vipul

          Thought your site is big, you can show limited listing on the site not all listing at a time. SO while adding lisitng/events on the site, you must have limited number of records to show or you can set as per your setting from widget setting you will add for home page.

          our team is under process to add pagination, other features,..

          will have update by this or next week

      GOod, because we all need it. It seems I’ve found a bug, can you please chek it here: http://www.penzionerskipopusti.rs On the home widget section, I’ve excluded category number 6 but it is still shown on index page (grid and regular view). Why this is happening? (that red sport and fashin thumbnail).

      • author
        Vipul

        In the category option you should add the category Id that you want to show related listing on the listing. So you should add only those category ID that you want to show listing. There is not any exclude option for that. Let me know still have any problem.
        It will ok to create forum topic so other user can also have benefit in case of similar problem.

  • gpetar

    What should be proper size for featured image? If I use whatever I have, there are problems with grid view,so please tell us what are recomended sizes (or proportions)

  • gpetar

    I’ve just changed color scheme of my site at: http://www.penzionerskipopusti.rs/ On grid view, there are stars on yellow background (on thumbnails).Is it possible to change that yellow color into something more suitable?

    • author
      Vipul

      The star you can see is the same star you see for normal listing all over site. So if you change related css you can change the complete site stars.

      you can also do change from : http://www.penzionerskipopusti.rs/wp-content/themes/vantage/vantage-newhome-style.css

      css class : .grid article.listing .review-meta .stars-cont
      near line : 16
      change the “background” for the yellow color settings. if you want to change start you should change star image.

      Thanks

      Hi gpetar,

      Always follow this:

      via FTP : to wp-content/plugins/home_control_vantage

      rename the current folder and replace the updated folder with same folder name.

      IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EVERY TIME WHILE YOU UPDATE THE PLUGIN ::
      ———————————————————-
      Related changed in plugins/home_control_vantage/templates/
      – page-vantage-newhome.php
      – vantage-newhome-style.css

      -The working copy of same files are places at your current theme root folder while you have active the plugn at first time.
      -So for every update you must replace both files manually (via ftp or from wp-admin > Appearance > edit files).
      -If any change done by you in past please backup the files before replace.

    When I try to add a iframe you tube video with responsive design this plugin is now putting the video in the background and looks really crazy. What is causing this?

    • author
      Vipul

      The plugin only show your post list & event in grid format. It now suppose used to add video. I think there is something mistake of what you want to say?
      Would you please describe little details.
      you can add youtube iframe in footer as backbround effect.

  • irongloves

    Can this plugin work for zpGids Child Theme and how?

    • author
      Vipul

      Yes the last updated plugin is child theme ready so if you active the plugin for any child theme, it will work normally as normal vantage theme.

      You need to follow same features as per readme.txt file give.

      Get image attached with plugin & product detail for more understanding.

      Thanks

  • tallis1970

    I think your plugin is a great idea for the vantage theme.
    1)Would this plugin work with a slider plugin. I would like to add a slider at top of page to be followed by the features that your plugin offers.

    2)Does the widget allow for me to add other content from the site eg. News, Videos,blog

  • pithyone

    Buying question: Nice work here. Is it possible to replace map with say a text widget and put slider short code in there and another text widget with some text in it.

    I’m finding vantage home page extremely limiting and rigid and would like to replace the map with a slider and some text — your beautiful listing layouts would be cherry on top!

    Can you help?

    • author
      Vipul

      HI,

      1)replace the map with text slider widget is possible because the map is vantage theme feature and controlled via widget.

      2)We have home page template which is widget ready both content area and sidebar so you can manage any widget (just drag and drop) but take care of design & look.

      Thanks

      • pithyone

        That’s great news because text widget doesn’t work on the home page content area on Vantage.

        Just to make sure (if you say this is possible, you have a sale): I can build a homepage on Vantage with a Slider (putting shortcode into text widget), additional text, and business and event listings below?

        Thanks again!

        • author
          Vipul

          yes as it’s widget ready area, you can manage as per your widget settings.

          • Paul

            The text widget does work, but it isn’t styled. Is that not a big problem? It’s just a big blurb of unformatted text on my install. It doesn’t look the same as the other two sections.

  • idesignstudio

    Hi,

    I cannot see on your demo the gid example as on the screenshots.

    Is your demo properly set?

    Thanks.

    • author
      Vipul

      Thanks to inform us as we are working on wordpress & vantage theme update, meanwhile may changed any settings so we set the settings again mainly home two plugin files in theme folder. every thing ok now on our demo.

      • idesignstudio

        Hi, great to see how the demo functioning. It really helps when deciding to buy the plugin.

        I left you message on the support forum as just by activating the plugin and choosing grid mode, there is no big change in my layout, just the normal layout is a bit broken.

        I will start now to upload images, as till now I had a database import without images. May be the problem comes from the missing images. If there is still no expected output afterwards, I will contact you again.

        Cheers.

  • albatros85

    I do not want the default Google map, Can I add Mapsupreme to the home page created with your plugin?
    Many thanks

  • Paul

    I was really quite excited about this plugin, because I didn’t think the Vantage homepage was very good at all and this, I thought, was going to come to the rescue.

    It is quite cool for the two widgets that are supplied, but there isn’t any styling at all applied to any other widgets, not even the default WP text/html widget, and that’s a major letdown.

    IMO – you should at least sort the CSS out so that the default WP widgets can be used. Without that I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed.
