After 2 very busy months, many late nights and building several real estate websites with Easy Property Listings 2.1 is ready for you to create even better websites with WordPress.
2.1 has been a huge undertaking with a small team to accomplish and we have had many challenges to overcome. Next we will be releasing updates to all extensions which all have had major upgrades and improvements. Enter your active license key for your extensions to download the updates.
Update the plugin to 2.0+ before updating your extensions.
Let us know if you find any issues with 2.1 in the support forum, we’ve done our best to thoroughly test this release to make sure there are no issues.
You can help us make the project better by purchasing the developer pack which now has all extensions included, leaving a review on WordPress.org or signing up for priority support.
Read on to see what is new in 2.1. A major change is the ability to add new post types which is great for non property websites.
Map now uses coordinates and if they are not set, it will locate the listing and save the coordinates for faster display and map loading.
