This Week Theme Update: RoyaleRoom

This week we updated our Real Estate theme, RoyaleRoom. We have made lots of improvements and bug fixes in this update. There are long lists of changelog, so we won’t post it here, we will only highlight the major improvements in this update. So here they are.

Validation on Edit Property Page

In a previous version of RoyaleRoom, validation only works on Property Submission Page, but not on Edit Property Page. We have fixed this bug in this version, so users will be notified if there are required fields that need to fill.

Save options on Gateway Options Page asynchronously

In simple word, “asynchronously” means save the options without reloading the page. You don’t have to wait for a page to reload.

Install required page after theme activation

RoyaleRoom needs some page to be created, such as Dashboard, Edit Property and Submit Property page. In a previous version of RoyaleRoom you need to create this page manually, but now you only need to click install button, and all pages will be created automatically.

Remove options to show Google Maps StreetView

We decided to remove this option as Google Maps already have this function to switch from Maps and StreetView. Just drag the Pegman icon on the upper left of the map above the zoom level button, and the map will be switched into StreetView mode.

And many more, we can’t write them all. You can check the changelog here.

To update RoyaleRoom, you can easily update the theme from its theme panel, it will automatically download the latest theme package to your site or you may download the latest theme version from ColorLabs Member Page, use your premium account and then replace the content through FTP to your theme folder.
