WordPress Post Data
Property names are written into the post title when the property posts are created. Since WordPress requires every post to have a title, the automatic sync will never change it. However, this does mean that post titles can be changed on the website at any time.
This is great for situations where your property may have a name in the feed that’s based on accounting purposes but you want your property to have a different name for marketing reasons.
Post URLs are written into the Permalink when the property posts are created. Since WordPress requires every post to have a permalink, that can’t be changed or removed by the automatic sync. However, this does mean that they can be edited at any time.
If you do choose to change the post’s Permalink on a live site, make sure you have redirects in place so that visitors and search engines don’t get lost.

If your property is connected to sync, the city will be determined automatically from its address and you do not need to manage this.
