You can opt to upload photos of your property to display in a gallery, or add a photo gallery shortcode. Your site can have faster performance by using RentPress’s native photo functionality. We recommend increasing your Medium size image dimensions from the default 300×300 to 600×600 before uploading photos. When you use RentPress’s image upload functionality, the gallery shortcode will not be used.

Gallery Shortcode

Enter the shortcode for a photo gallery. This shortcode will be rendered in the “Gallery” section on the property listing.

Gallery Images

Click the Upload button to add images to the property. This will call up WordPress’s native image picker allowing you to select images for your gallery and order them. After you Save the property post, you’ll have the option to Clear all photos out of the gallery or remove individual photos.

WordPress Post Data

Post Title

Property names are written into the post title when the property posts are created. Since WordPress requires every post to have a title, that can’t be changed or removed by the automatic sync. However, this does mean that post titles can be edited 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 URL

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.

Amenities

Amenities can be entered in the Amenities taxonomy selector and, when enabled, they will show up in the “Amenities & Features” section on the property and single floor plan pages. The property will also display on each corresponding Amenity pages.

If your synced property’s import source supports amenities, you do not need to manage this here.

RentPress property amenities

Features

Property features can be entered in the Features taxonomy selector and, when enabled, they will show up in the “Amenities & Features” section on the property and single floor plan pages. The property will also display on each corresponding Feature pages.

Cities
