- Updates & Support
The Hot Homes is a responsive real estate template for Joomla! It extensively uses a relatively new Joomla! feature: Custom Fields. Thanks to this powerful core feature, our template has everything that’s needed for development of a complex real estate agency website. Additional extensions are not necessary! Everything you need is Joomla! and this template.
Detailed Information About Properties
Custom Fields are new feature of Joomla! It allows us to attach some additional pieces of information to the articles and users.
Articles As Property Listings
Real estate properties in the Hot Homes template are actually regular Joomla! articlespowered with Custom Fields. When you edit a property listing (actually, an article), you can also edit the additional data on the same page.
Customizable Custom Fields
The Custom Fields can be customized easily. You can rename each of the custom fields. Also, you can re-group them, change group names or add new groups of custom fields.
Adding Media is Ridiculously Easy
Real estate property listings are worth nothing without appropriate media attached to each listing! That’s where the Hot Homes template shines! All that listing authors (agents) should do is to upload and select media. Everything else is automated!
Joomla Users as Real Estate Agents
It’s possible to assign multiple Joomla! users to act as authors. In the real estate template, these authors are actually real estate agents.
