Version 1.5.25 of our Property Hive WordPress plugin was recently released and contains some great new updates that we think you’ll be interested in if you use Property Hive on your estate agency website.
Let’s take a look below at what new features have been included in this latest release:
Off market properties won’t show in searches but someone may have the URL saved, they might have an old mailout containing the link, and it’s likely been indexed by search engines. As a result someone may still stumble over an old property which is no longer on the market and visit the URL direct.
As a result, we’ve added a new setting under ‘Property Hive > Settings > General > Miscellaneous‘ to specify what happens should an off market property URL be accessed:
You can choose to still show the property details or do a 301 redirect back to the search results page.
We’ve improved searching by address keyword on the frontend by catering for comma-delimited search terms that contain multiple levels of address elements (i.e. High Street, Basildon). Previously this would’ve not worked, however we now cater for this, especially seeing as suggestions returned from our Location Autocomplete add on are often in this format.
This new version is available as an update in WordPress so we recommend you update to benefit from these latest features.
