3. Listings Manager mySQL Upgrade Available Now!
Listings Manager mySQL Upgrade Available Now!

In July we mentioned that you can upgrade your Realty & Auto Manager websites to use the latest Instant Realty Website & Instant Auto Website software. You can now add one more product to that list, Listings Manager.

Starting at only $299 (software included), upgrading couldn't be easier, our consulting team will do all the work for you. We'll import your data from your current install to the new Instant Website software and also upgrade your templates for you.

Instant Realty Website, Instant Auto Website, & Instant Listings Website can do everything Realty, Auto, & Listings Manager can do and more. The benefits of upgrading are huge, giving you several new options to improve your site:

  • Support for unlimited listings (no more 2000 listings limit)
  • Support for unlimited uploads (no more 10 photo limit)
  • Support for unlimited editor fields (no more 75 field limit)
  • Ability to create unlimited pages and sections (you'll no longer be limited to just listings and homepages, you can create new areas for featured listings, open houses, rentals, and more)
  • Ability to create unlimited advanced user search engines
  • Easily create custom search fields in the admin program (make it easier for agents to find specific listings)
  • Fast MySQL based searching

Instant Realty Website, Instant Auto Website, & Instant Listings Website are built off of the powerful CMS Builder platform, so they make use of the latest technology. For a list of more features and benefits check out CMS Builder for details.

To get started with your upgrade simply email our consulting team or fill out this form. We'll take care of the rest for you.

4. New Version of CMS Builder
New Version of CMS Builder

We've just released version 1.33 with many new features and improvements.

This release is focused on menu enhancements. Here's what's new:

  • Menu Groups, these are header bars in the menu that group multiple sections together. They collapse accordion style so opening one group closes the others. This is a great feature for grouping related sections on larger CMS sites.

  • Text Links, you can now add text links to the menu bar that link to external sites or any url. This makes it easier to provide links to other applications or services your clients might need and more tightly integrate your system with CMSB. This is great for adding links back to your company website (for your clients), your support page, and links to any other control panels or web applications the client might need to access.

  • Indented Menu Items, you'll be able to indent a menu item so it shows "under" another menu item to create more logical groupings when there are lots of menu links. And these can also be styled differently in cmsAdmin/css/ui.css if desired.

For a full list of changes, visit the CMS Builder changelog or you can upgrade by donation.

Please feel free to post your feedback and questions. We're always eager to get your feature requests and bug reports, every single release is full of user requested fixes and features. Post in the forum or email our senior programmer at dave@interactivetools.com.

5. Article Manager 2.16 patch for WYSIWYG & IE8 available now
Artman 2.16 patch for WYSIWYG & IE8 available now

For anyone using Article Manager, we've just released a patch that fixes some reported IE8 layout issues and upgrades the WYSIWYG to TinyMCE so it works in Firefox and other browsers.

To install, do the following:

  • Backup your current artman directory
  • Download and unzip the patch
  • Upload the files in the zip over top of the existing files
  • Clear your browser cache and re-load the admin

Hope that helps!

Also, please note that the updated wysiwyg doesn't support ASP/PHP code within the WYSIWYG. Generally you should never do that anyway (there's almost always better ways). So if you need that functionality don't upgrade.
