  1. Create empty MySQL database with utf8_unicode_ci charset

  3. Open web server public url and configuration will appear.
  4. Enter database name, username, password.
  5. Click on "Save" and you will get login and links info (Please save this info because it's unique).

Regarding hosting providers, my scripts are tested on:

a2_hosting_logo

Login as admin and open your website link.

On left side you will see something like this:

Automatic translation via administration:

Login to admin->Settings->languages->Add language->enter for example ‘russian’ and code to for example ‘ru’.

For frontend you can translate files via administration for your language:

Admin->Settings->Languages->Translate files for wanted language->frontend_template_lang.php->translate missing fields

*Hint: You can also use auto translation feature (button on top) using Google or MyMemory API

Also can be translated manually via file:
templates\[wanted_template]\language\{wanted_language}\frontend_template_lang.php

For backend you can translate files via administration for your language:

Admin->Settings->Languages->Translate files->Translate min. all fields in backend_base_lang.php

Also can be translated manually via file:
application\language\{wanted_language}\backend_base_lang.php

To translate website content (saved in database):

  1. Login to admin
  2. Pages->Edit every page->click on tab “your_language” and translate all values
  3. Real Estates->Fields->Edit every Field->click on tab “your_language” and translate all values
    *hint: After changes you should edit->save again all your properties, specially for purpose field!
  4. Real Estates->Manage->Edit every property->click on tab “your_language” and translate all values
  1. Login to admin
  2. Pages & menu
  3. Add a page
  4. Populate fields

You can select wanted template, there is standard templates and custom templates.

Standard templates are not editable visually, but with code customization's:

There is example theme available in the directory "/templates/{theme}".

Some documentation about this is available in technical documentation, or can be found also in existing template files and "copy-pasted".

Custom templates can be added via Admin->Settings->Design template->Manage templates->Add template or Edit existing:

Here you can move available widgets to your custom template position.

Custom widgets:

You can add more widgets in the directory "/templates/{theme}/widgets/" like for example: right_mortgage.php

In this case right mean position of widget.

In widget you can use same code as in page templates, so follow guides in technical documentation for this. You can also enter PHP code directly there if you need something completely custom.

Properties can be added by frontend or backend, it's same thing only for different user type.

You can add properties via Admin->Real estates->Manage->Add a estate->populate fields

Properties can have custom fields, and you can simply add it via:

Admin->Real estates->Fields->Add field->populate fields

You can also rename current available fields what is very suggested in case if you want to delete red locked one.

In some cases for example for type Land you want to hide some fields when submitting properties, like Rooms etc. Now you can do this:

Admin->Real estates->Dependent fields->Add dependent field->populate fields

Search form can be edited via admin now with visual editor:

Admin->Real estates->Search forms->Edit standard search form

Here yo ucan drag-and-drop wanted fields to form.

You can also change/define direction for numeric fields pressing edit button, for example if you want to have from-rooms - to-rooms fields.

Custom form elements for advance usage:

You can edit form code in the directory "/templates/{theme}/form_fields/" like for example: DROPDOWN.php

In this case name mean position type of form element.

In form elements you can use same code as in page templates, so follow guides in technical documentation for this. You can also enter PHP code directly there if you need something completely custom.

Email templates can be customized via Admin->Settings->Design template->Email templates editor->Edit wanted.

Email template can be found also in: application\views\email

Templates files can be customized via Admin->Settings->Design template->Files editor->Edit wanted.

There is also template config file where you can change some parameters like this for num results per page: $config['per_page'] = 9;

Before you start with custom coding you should know that I always building something additional and currently have many modules:

You can found it in Admin->Settings->Addons
