The ibsTeam Real Estate Directory has released a monster of a WordPress Child Theme for Thematic. It’s a “basic 3-column, fixed width theme with 13 widget-ready areas that allows you to turn a simple blog into a fully functional real estate web site.” And it’s called Simple Realty.
Now, it doesn’t just look awesome—with a host of alternate color styles too!—there’s also a lot of custom features with this one.
- Custom header image.
- Agent header block – agent’s photo, contact name and telephone number – this block can be customized via back-end or completely turned off per your desire.
- Top and sidebar navigation management widget.
- Text widget for blog – new option to show custom text widgets only on blog’s main page, single posts and archives (blog related content that shouldn’t appear on static pages).
- “No sidebar” template to IFrame a third party IDX solution.
- Custom CSS files for the Great Real Estate plugin to present your property listings, and for the cforms plugin to generate leads.
