Last week we released the Real Estate Directory theme. In the comments for the release blog post one of you guys asked us when are we planning to do something truly innovative. Well… ta-da Few years back when “magazine themes” was the only different thing happening to WordPress blogging software, we came up with frontend submission in our Real Estate theme and invented a whole new way of using WordPress in 2010. It has become very popular now, replicated by many and listing themes have truly evolved. However, front-end submission can still be a complex process for the end user. The long, endless form, setting the map, uploading images that you only have to imagine how they will actually look on your listing. Form gets even longer if you add new custom fields, content validation – yes you get the idea. It is complex for the end user and we all wish there was a better, easier way to do this. Ladies and gentleman, we are revolutionizing the way listing submission yet again in 2014. Introducing WYSIWYG Submission add-on which lets you edit listings right there on the detail page. What you see is what you get! And no, it doesn’t require any forms! Here’s how it works Select price package & categories in which the submission will appear. A sample listing is added and is ready for user to click & edit. He is shown the exact way his listing would appear once published. User can click on any part of the listing and replace content, images, maps, video etc with his own, right on the screen. User Pay and publish listing While adding a listing, rest of the page sections such as sidebar and list footer is disabled so user can focus on listing without getting confused with non editable parts. Experience this revolutionary submission process yourself on the demo site. While front end editing idea is not new (Barley and WP Front Editor already allows text editing) we believe this add-on takes front editing to whole new level by replacing the long tedious form and places the power in site visitor’s hand. We hope this new way of listing submission will take the pain and confusion away from your site visitors, make listing submission easier and will result into better monetization of your listing directory.
