WP Estate 1.94 – Released November 6, 2013.

This upgrade includes a few IMPORTANT notes.

For clients who are upgrading from an older version, please consider the following:

– Deactivate and activate the theme again for listings to pick up the new FEATURED option and new Zoom Controls on taxonomy pages. If you upgrade from v1.93, Theme Options will be saved. If you upgrade from an older version, Theme Options will be overwritten (like landing address and custom colors).

– If you want to update also the revolution slider as well you must:

1. Connect via FTP manager to WPESTATE/WP-Content/plugins/revslider

2. Go to theme pack in WPESTATE/LIBS/PLUGINGS/REVSLIDER , open the folder and copy the files to your domain, in WPESTATE/wp-content/plugins/revslider

– If you upgrade from an older version and you want to activate NEW Membership packages, package limits will not consider the listings already submitted (paid or free).
– The most recommended way is to start a new account for all users, to have an accurate package limit number.

– PayPal IPN account details must be updated for Membership to work (please see our manual above). Recurring is supported only by the OLD API, so you must add IPN – API info in Theme Options. If you want to test with Sandbox, you must add Sandbox API. If you want to test with LIVE API, you must add LIVE API info.


- NEW: If you change from Paid or Free Submission to MEMBERSHIP, the default package (FREE MEMBERSHIP) will not consider listings added before the switch (only the new listings are substracted from the package).

- NEW: If user's package expires because he didn't renew or he doesn't have money in account, the package returns to FREE MEMBERSHIP by default. All his listings will have status EXPIRED (expired won't show in listings). If user decided to renew package, he can re-submit listings for approval. He'll be able to re-submit only the number of listings allowed by his package.
