Within the plug-in we've supplied credentials to a Lodgix demo account. Using the demo credentials you can activate the plugin and immediately see how the plug-in would work and look in your Wordpress site.
- Website running the hosted version of Wordpress. Wordpress.org sites will not work as they don't allow the use of third party plugins.
- Compatible Web Host. Over the last 10+ years we've only encountered two hosting platforms that routinely do not work well with the Lodgix plugin, WPEngine and BlueHost. These hosts have limitations placed on their shared hosting platforms which in many instances will cause the Lodgix plugin to not work well or at all. Additionally these hosting providers routinely do not provide adequate resources to their shared hosts to allow a Wordpress site to load quickly.
- Lodgix will not investigate, research or diagnose hosting related issues when hosted on WPEngine or Bluehost. Web hosting is very inexpensive. It is far less expensive to migrate your site to a host that has proven to work well with Lodgix. Using a plugin like BackupBuddy or many others, a site can be migrated in 15 minutes to a new host. Both GoDaddy Hosting and ICDSoft.com offer affordable plans and hosting configurations that work great with Lodgix.
Search / Sort Page - Row Option
The search / sort page has an option to display property summaries in a row (as above) or a grid format. The output can be styled using CSS. There are a few options within the plugin settings to turn off the display of certain elements without using CSS, however for the most part we leave control of the design up to the designer using CSS.
Search / Sort Page - Grid Option
Property Page - One Page Format
Featured Rentals Widget
The Featured Rentals widget can be embedded in any sidebar or page and will feature user selected properties or the properties can be set to dynamically rotate. Featured properties can be displayed horizontally or vertically.
Rentals Search Widget
The Rentals Search widget can be displayed in your sidebar, header or slider, and is unique in that it returns a real time result counter before the guest clicks on "Display Results". This is an important feature as it saves the guest the frustration of having no results returned and having no idea which of the search criteria caused no results being returned.
