Search / filter

  1. Hi,

    one of my sites uses a videosharing script for selling houses. A forum and blog should be integrated so the video script isn't really build for this. So I had the idea to build it again but now in Wordpress. Studiopress has a theme which should be ok for real estate.

    It should be possible for customers to upload their house using images or video.
    Studiopress said this is possible with the use of Gravity Forms. Other users should be able to search on the specified fields like square meters, price and so on.
    The difficulty is the following;

    Users should make a f.e. a first selection on region, then on price en after that on the size or something. With the use of this filter on the pre defined specs from the uploader they should come to a more narrow search result
    Is this possible with the use of GF?

  2. Gravity Forms can create WordPress posts, so if by upload their house you mean submit a form that creates a post containing information about their house (including images and video) that your theme displays as a listing then yes it would be possible.

    The extra information such as square meters, price, etc. would be custom fields stored in post meta for the post that is created. Your theme would have to be configured to display these custom fields values. I'm not familiar with that specific theme to know if it already does this.

    You can read more about custom fields here:

    The StudioPress team could probably assist you with displaying custom fields in your theme if you opt to use them and the theme doesn't already do so.

    As for the filter you reference, Gravity Forms only creates the WordPress Post. It wouldn't act as a search form for users to filter selections on region, price, size, etc. It doesn't act as a search engine. It only does forms that create data.
