forms conditional formating

    I would like to build a classified used cars listing site with the theme where user can choose car models based on car makes while he/she add a new listing. Is there such an option in hivepress?

    i.e the form must change based on the selection made in the first row.

    It is not possible to change other attributes based on the selection (only if you use makes as categories), but for the make/model details you can use a single Select attribute with hierarchical options.

    1) ” but for the make/model details you can use a single Select attribute with hierarchical options.” – how can i do this?

    2) is there any option to add dynamic titles? Which means the title of listing should appear like (condition) (year) (make) (model).
    Title Eg: Used 1998 Toyota Corolla for Sale. I thin kits a must have for classified sites.

    1. Please create a new attribute of Select type and save changes, then click Edit Options and add parent/child options (e.g. Toyota, and then Corolla selecting Toyota as a parent option).

    2. Yes, please set it in HivePress/Settings/Listings/Display section, the format depends on the attribute names, e.g.:

    %listing.make% (%listing.year%)

    I did this, but what happened:

    I formatted the attributes Make, Model and Condition as: %label% %value%
    so that they appear in a good format in the right sidebar as I marked red in the image https://prnt.sc/KcEIks96Bggu .
    But, what happened is the same is appearing as the title too when i formatted Display>Title as: %listing.make% %listing.year% . Title eg: Make Nissan Year 2009

    How can I display – Used 2009 Nissan Sunny – as the title, and,
    Condition Used
    Year 2009
    Make Nissan
    Model Sunny, in the right sidebar

    Yes, we’re aware of this issue and will try to resolve it in the next update, currently there’s only one display format per attribute but we’ll probably add some tool for adding custom display areas and a custom format per area.

    thank you so much for the support, even though it’s a free theme. I am loving this theme + your dedication since june 2019/2020.

    I am planning to launch a used cars classifieds website, but only one feature I found missing in HivePress. Its the absence of Make, Model form feature (Its a must have for me). But this theme has lot of features even paid themes don’t offer (I purchased a popular cars classified theme (******) from themeforest for USD 79 and I am not at all satisfied with it). Expecting the Make Model form feature soon from you (even if its released as a paid extension).

    I got a small Idea to do Make, Model for now:

    Create Select attributes called Make, Model, where it has options, Make: Toyota, Nissan etc. and for Model attribute: Model names with their Make as parent.

    Now create attributes (Text/Select) called Make1, Model1 where front end editing is not allowed. Here we can add the Make, Model names our own from the backend. And this can be used for the listing title.

    Thanks for the kind words, we will continue delivering features for ListingHive & HivePress. Please consider using a single Select as a workaround, then the only thing left is resolving multiple display formats, and it may be possible with a simple code fix (e.g. by filtering hivepress/v1/models/listing/attributes and setting a different display format for the listing page).

    To compose the title, I use three attribute names, but they go in one line, tell me how to make each attribute go in a new paragraph when displayed?

    yevhen developer

    Could you clarify which attributes (listing, vendor, etc.)? Also please clarify where attributes are placed on your website (listing block, listing page, etc.) or share a screenshot

    Kim

    The Listing title is created automatically using token %listing% . It consists of two attributes. Everything is fine here. I need that when displaying the title in the list and block, for convenience, the title is divided into two parts by a paragraph.

    ihor developer

    There’s no such option at the moment, titles don’t have line breaks or paragraphs – if you’re familiar with code customizations you can try using some special character and then using it to process & break titles into multiple lines. This would also require customizing the title template part.

    tech57online

    Can we expect Make, Model fields support in the upcoming update? Its OK even if you are releasing it as a paid extension.

    ihor developer

    A separate attribute type is not planned at the moment, but we’ll try to resolve this via separate display formats as soon as possible, currently the same display format is used for the listing title generation and displaying attributes on the listing page, this causes issues with labels.
