WP-Property – BLM Export

Description

An add-on for the WP-Property WordPress plugin that allows you to send a BLM feed to property portals automatically at regular intervals. Contains the following features:

  • Automatic scheduling of feed creation; either twice a day, once a day, or every other day.
  • Test mode and live mode to allow you to test the feed first before sending it.
  • FTP upload – Feeds are automatically uploaded via FTP to the portals.
  • Compression. Specify if you want to send all the files separately, or compress them into a single zip for quicker processing.
  • Support for multiple branch codes per portal in the event you are dealing with a multi-office agency.
  • Incremental feeds. The plugin only includes the media that is new or has recently changed to massively reduce sending times and filesize. Can be overwritten if required
  • Archiving. Store files for a configurable amount of days to act as a temporary backup. These are then automatically cleaned up at regular intervals to prevent disk space being taken up.
  • Manually run feeds to assist with testing
  • View statistics for the past 30 days including a list of the properties sent in each feed, and a list of errors if any occur to aid with debugging why a feed or property may not have sent.
  • Emailed reports. Get a report emailed to one or more recipients containing a log of what happened when the feeds ran. You can choose to receive these reports every time the feed runs, or only when errors occur.
  • Advanced field mapping. Easy to use interface allowing you to select which fields setup in WP-Property relate to the fields in the BLM
  • Extra resources for developers including links to a BLM validator, a sample BLM and BLM specification.
  • Help tooltips throughout explaining what each field means.

Upcoming features

  • Aim to include floorplans, brochures, EPC’s and virtual tours. Because there is no definitive way to add these in WP-Property it’s difficult to know how people will be storing these.
  • Make field mapping more intelligent by pre-selecting fields based on their names
  • Allow user to choose which size of image they include in the feed
