I purchased this plugin and had a couple of difficulties because I was trying to do something a little different. I just wanted to leave a comment and thank HTMLPIE. Their support team is above and beyond the norm. Even though my problems were probably outside their support obligation, they jumped in and helped me get it working. They are very professional and very courteous. I wish all support departments were this good.
Despite a couple of teething problems, this is a great plugin.
It does what it says in the description.
Tech support is the best I have ever come across.
I estimate this plugin has saved me 1 hour for every domain I have listed with it.
I too would like the ability to display premium domains, perhaps in a scrolling box and / or the option to add a featured domain.
I have several domains that I consider quite valuable but they get lost in the alphabetical list.
5 star product and 10 star service.
I’m stumped. Installed plugin and theme on domain A. Parked and imported domain B. Configured domain B with unique information. No errors reported. When I enter domain domain B into URL, it displays domain A info. What am I missing?
Thank you for your purchase
Please contact us through the Support section with a link to your site so we can help you, thanks.
Okay, just sent support message. Thank you
Problem resolved. Thank you for the excellent customer support!
Hello again, I was just wondering why there encrypted code in the style sheet? For example in distheme-header.css.
Those are SVG backgrounds, for maximum browser compatibility; you can read about them here: https://css-tricks.com/data-uris/
Hi htmlpie, plugin not work and I emailed support several days ago, still no response. Pls help.
We haven’t received any support request from you, have you used the Support section or emailed us directly?
I use the support section and click on “Contact Author”, then write the message. I have just send another message to you:
Please help. I have tried many times but still not work. Here’s my setup:
1. multisite wordpress installed on Amazon EC2 t2-micro;
2. the Plugin and free theme was activated on domains.ABC.net;
3. import and point domains to ABC.net’s dns;
Although I can see domains imported on the home page of domains.ABC.net, when I click on “Make an offer!” right behind the domain, It takes me to, e.g. http://ABC.net/wp-signup.php?new=12345.com
I have also tried to change the bidding form location to ABC.net/bidding-form. It still bring me to http://ABC.net/wp-signup.php?new=12345.com
We’ve just replied to your support ticket; your domains are just parked where the main WordPress is not located you should just move the WP or fix the parkings.
Hi htmlpie, thanks for the latest updates. Now the plugin works with wpmu. I almost lost faith on it until I update it today and found it works now. Thanks. 5stars.
Hi there, thank you very much!
Hey HTML Pie, Nice work! Seems to do everything well… except I was wondering about the minimum offer. It doesn’t seem to increase after I get an offer. That is, if I set it to $500 minimum offer and then get an $800 offer, the minimum offer is still at $500. Isn’t it supposed to make the last offer the new minimum? Thanks!
No it doesn’t do that, in most cases it’d have a negative impact on sales, let’s say somebody places a bid for $800 and just disappears and there’s this another bidder who really wants the domain but only for $700 it’ll make it impossible for him\her to submit an offer, you’ll lose a serious bidder, there are other downsides too but this is mainly why we haven’t added such a thing.
Hello again – Thanks for getting back. I see how you are thinking about it, but I would have to respectfully disagree. My experience tells me that if I didn’t already accept the $800 offer, then I’m not really going to be interested in the $700 offer at all.
Moreover, the countdown timer leaves the impression that the domain name is going to be sold when the time runs out. Combined with the “Make offer” feature, this has a feel that is similar to an auction.
That’s nice, but I’ve never seen a situation like that where you could bid less than the highest bid, except where you don’t know what the highest bid is, such as in a sealed bid auction or blind auction (which is extremely rare in the domain name industry).
I’m thinking the missing element is the bid verification you discussed last year.
(See https://codecanyon.net/item/this-domain-is-for-sale-wordpress-plugin/8469865/comments?page=2&filter=all#comment_9190757 for exact dialog.)
If you had the option to make bidders verify, it would greatly reduce spam offers and if the bidder failed to verify his or her bid (i.e. the $800 bidder disappears), then the required minimum starting price would never have changed. In that case, the software would still accept the $700 offer from a bidder that does verify.
I really like what you have already (obviously, I bought it), but I do hope you will consider doing a little more work on it in this area.
Well, I think we can add this with a “warning” message or something like that to let the user decide what is best, what do you think?
Well, I’m all for any move toward those features.
If you mean an administrative warning for the minimum starting price changing with each new offer, then yes, you probably need to let existing admins know that he or she will not receive any offers that are less than their last offer if they turn the option on. I can see this as a necessary notice for your existing customers since it is a new option. (The option should probably be set to “off” as default for that same reason.)
If you are talking about the email verification, I shouldn’t think there would be a warning needed – just also set it to “off” as default for those that don’t wish to verify the email address of the party making the offer.
Awesome news actually. Let me know when it’s done and I’ll buy another copy to help support the plugin!
Thank you! that’s not necessary however you are already doing that by providing such valuable feedback
For the warning message I meant the minimum price option, the email verification feature will be definitely added too.
I am nervous to write more at the risk of distracting your efforts from the above changes. To me, email verification and a minimum offer amount that is based on the domain name’s last offer are by far the plugin’s most critical needs.
However, since you mentioned that I am being helpful by providing “such valuable feedback”, I would add the following in an effort to be helpful…
I find the plugin to be very practical and useful in every way one might imagine. Still, there is a flaw in your approach to the “logo” feature. There should in fact be two logos if you were going to continue to allow a logo in the portfolio listings.
For that feature you would want only an icon; say 100px x 100px. Frankly, I’d do away with the feature all together, as you already offer the call-to-action button.
In either event, the logo for the header is the critical “logo” and it is currently hard-coded to be based on 450px x 450px. That isn’t helpful. Most headers or logos in the header region will occupy a rectangle space of maybe 100px x 320px, while many use the entire width of the content area.
Ideally, the “logo” could be any size and would scale appropriately (i.e. be responsive). If the logo feature were useful in this way it would be awesome – especially considering the ability to customize any domain name individually. But as it is, a normal logo is scaled down to look like an icon because the scaling is apparently based on your recommended size of 450px x 450px.
Because of this, I just don’t use the logo feature now. But as a matter of feedback, that is the only other thing I see (besides perhaps incorporating Google’s ‘No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA’) that prevents this from being a really comprehensive and complete offering.
I hope that helps.
Sorry we should have replied to this days ago! It is definitely a great idea to have a “Site icon” in addition to the Logo (just the same thing as the recently added Site icon feature of the WP core but customizable per domain etc) I think we should definitely add this to both the plugin and the PHP script! once again thank you very much!
The reason the Logo feature has a recommended size (by the way it is 512×512) is our upcoming line of premium themes for this plugin as a matter of fact the logo feature was only added because of these themes and of course a few other features etc, this is mainly why it doesn’t look “that good” on the “difstheme” especially the domain list, just wait a little bit I’m sure you’ll rush to upload some logos
As for reCAPTCHA, do you mean you’re receiving Spam from the bidding form?
Thanks for your response.
First of all, no, I’m not receiving spam. Really, it’s just a matter of aesthetics and simplicity. Google’s ‘No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA’ usually only requires one click and no typing – plus it looks modern. From a practical standpoint, the way you have it right now works perfectly for its purpose of stopping spam.
Next, I got the pixels wrong on both accounts. Where I said 450px x 450px, I was indeed referring to the 512px x 512px that you have preset. And on the 100px x 100px icon, it should probably be more like 24px x 24px so it looks more appropriate for the size of the font it is next to in the available domain names list.
Additionally, I would’ve imagined the icon would show up on the right side of the domain name and not the left. The logo/icon being on the left of the domain name as it is now disrupts the visual flow of anyone scanning down through the names.
The really powerful usefulness for this feature that I imagine is as an auction icon. Right now, by default, I don’t show a price or an ending time, or highest offer. Then, I can go to domain names individually and turn on the “Highest Offer”, “Offer Count”, “Display the starting price on the form”, and “Display the bidding end date in the form” to run an auction on that specific domain name.
(In that regard, you can see how valuable the email verification and minimum offer amount based on the domain name’s last offer would be.)
So… all that to say that if I could customize a specific domain name to add an icon to the right of the domain name when it is listed in the portfolio, then I could indicate that that particular domain name is in auction status using an auction icon. Then the visitor would know that that particular domain name will only be available for a limited time. Meanwhile, the other names would continue to take offers as they may come in without any expiration date.
Obviously, being able to add a proper header image to individual domain names would be awesome too, but that’s what I was thinking on the portfolio list.
And in case I haven’t come up with enough stuff already, it would be great if you could add a video to the description area for the default settings or for an individual domain name. So far, I’ve tried it using HTML 5 video, an i-frame, and YouTube (which also uses i-frames) and I can’t seem to get anything to work. I even tried it in the HTML area – though that would put it down to the bottom of the page, which is not what I wanted it – but that didn’t work either, doesn’t seem to convert the code into ASCII text or something.
Finally, let me reiterate that I am not complaining; what you have created is very useful! I am merely suggesting ways it could become more awesome.
You can use the “Bidding end date” option and have it included in the list too? instead of the logo.
Have you tried to add your video to a widget region? (aka “sidebar”) like the “Top” one, it’ll appear above the description area, you can add it with the [video] shortcode in a “Text” widget, like [video src=”YOUR_VIDEO_URL”]
Sorry for the delay in getting back; I was trying to sell some domain names.
Yes, the bidding ending date in the portfolio list is actually better than an auction icon. I had missed that feature in the portfolio options. I just enabled it in the general configuration, but it only shows up with the domain names that have an end date set, which is great!
As for the video, I think we are talking about two different things. I was trying to add a video (HTML5) using the description area so I could use different videos on each individual domain name. If I just add the video to the top widget area directly it will display the same video on every domain name. And besides, the shortcode you suggest only allows for a single URL. My code looks like this:
<div class="html5video" style="position:relative;max-width:2048px;"><video controls="controls" autoplay="autoplay" poster="/videos/html5video/myownvideo.jpg" style="width:100%" title="myownvideo">
<source src="/videos/html5video/myownvideo.m4v" type="video/mp4" />
<source src="/videos/html5video/myownvideo.webm" type="video/webm" />
<source src="/videos/html5video/myownvideo.ogv" type="video/ogg" />
<source src="/videos/html5video/myownvideo.mp4" />
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="/videos/html5video/flashfox.swf" width="2048" height="1080" style="position:relative;">
<param name="movie" value="/videos/html5video/flashfox.swf" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
<param name="flashVars" value="autoplay=true&controls=true&fullScreenEnabled=true&posterOnEnd=true&loop=false&poster=/html5video/myownvideo.jpg&src=myownvideo.m4v" /> <embed src="/videos/html5video/flashfox.swf" width="2048" height="1080" style="position:relative;" flashVars="autoplay=true&controls=true&fullScreenEnabled=true&posterOnEnd=true&loop=false&poster=/html5video/myownvideo.jpg&src=myownvideo.m4v" allowFullScreen="true" wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer_en" />
<img alt="myownvideo" src="/videos/html5video/myownvideo.jpg" style="position:absolute;left:0;" width="100%" title="Video playback is not supported by your browser" />
Now it might work out okay if I put the video in the custom HTML area of the individual domain name’s configuration and then used your “Domain for Sale: Custom HTML” widget in the top region. But as I mentioned before – for whatever reason – every time I try to use the custom HTML area (in the General configuration or in an individual domain name’s custom configuration) it converts all my code to ASCII or whatever. So this:
<a href="/url-link" target="_top">CLICK HERE!</a>
turns into this:
& amp;lt;a href=”/url-link” target=”_top”& amp;gt;CLICK HERE!</a& amp;gt;
and does not work.
<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
All in all some really useful software and I appreciate your attention to my feedback.
Glad to see
Using the “Widget Logic” plugin you can create custom widgets, just add a “condition” like this to your widget after enabling the plugin:
Difs_Domain::name() == 'example.com'
and the widget will only appear on that domain, or != and it will appear on all but that domain, “Difs_Domain::name_main()” also returns the main domain name.
The description area only accepts basic HTML for a number of reasons, security mostly, so you can’t really add videos and such.
You’re right about the “Custom HTML” option :\ it appears somewhere we made a wrong turn, thank you for reporting it! we’ll soon fix it.
Nice. Looking forward to your next release.
It’s ready! you can receive the new version through the automatic updater (WP backend) and soon here on CC too.
SWEET! I already had the auto updates configured, so I was good to go. Just logged in to see the Update Available notice and the plugin went off without a hitch.
Then (based on what you said above) I went to look at the theme and it did have a notice (see image here).
But when I tried to complete the upgrade I got this error.
Figured you’d want to know.
Just a follow-up. I finally stumbled on the new theme download note and everything looks great. REALLY appreciate the new features.
I did notice one little thing… when I load like 25 domain names and then I click to go to the next page, I don’t go back to the top of the page. So next, I set it up to only show 5 domain names and figured that not going to the top of the page would be fine if the user couldn’t scroll the page in the first place.
The problem there is that the height of the list container didn’t collapse. So I ended up with this huge white space in the list container, at the bottom of the five domain names and users still had to scroll down to get to the page tabs—and then had to scroll back up to see the top of the new page!
I thought there used to be a setting to set the height of the listing container, but as I recall it didn’t work, and I can’t even find such a setting now. Anyway… is there a way to set the difs_list container height? If not, will auto help?
That’s the theme, not the plugin, you can find the option under Admin -> Appearance -> Customizer -> Domain list.
Okay, then that’s where I saw it. It didn’t work before, but I see you have fixed that and the HTML area. Now it looks and works AWESOMELY! Thanks again for adding the dynamic minimum offer and the email verification.
Hello, I’m not able to download the current version yet..
You can’t download it from the automatic updater or from CodeCanyon?
codecanyon.. i was just able to use the automatic updater and it worked.
is there a way to hide the Primary Menu tab in this version of the theme and just display my actual menu tabs as it did before?
Sure, you can find the theme settings under Appearance -> Customizer
Hello again! Really enjoying the software; recently noticed the “expiring” feature in the admin’s domain name list. Nice.
Anyway, I was wondering if there is a trick to adding an IDN? I tried it both ways, with Text/Unicode and with punycode and both ways result in a “does not seem to be parked on” notice, although it is indeed listed (in punycode) as an alias in the CPanel. Additionally, it actually lands on a proper page, but since it is not “imported” I am unable to manipulate the features usually associated with each domain name.
Any feedback on how to overcome this small obsticle would be appreciated. Thanks in advance -
So glad to see
Could you please send the domain name to Support?
I am considering purchase.
How is the main domain handled? I am assuming one would have a “host” domain that is not for sale? How is it excluded from sale in a multisite environment?
A few of my domains for sale have content. Does your script accommodate this scenario?
Can the forms be submitted via my secure server as the script is currently written?
Thank you for your interest
The main domain can be excluded with a few clicks through the Configuration page; and it’s the same on a multisite environment too.
You can definitely have domains with custom content etc and also SSL (if that’s that you mean) however it’d be better to send us some URLs through the Support section so we can check and provide a “definitive answer”, thanks.
Fatal error: Access to undeclared static property: Difs::$domain in /home/bigdomain/public_html/wp-content/themes/difstheme.old/functions.php on line 241
This happens when I activate theme 2.4
Just purchased this. I need this fixed, it renders the whole fucking thing unusable
Could you please tell us your PHP version?
Thanks for the fast response. I am running php 5.4 on a fresh multisite install
PHP v5.4 should be fine, although it’s outdated too; please send us the URL through the Support section so we can dig this deeper, thanks.
I purchased this at codester. How do get support? Here is the URL: http://affiliateprime.com/
I am not prepared to give you access to my server. This issue can be recreated by installing multisite and your plugin.
I switched to php 7 just for fun and look at the error now!
Then you should have contacted us through Codester; anyway, it appears the plugin you have installed is not the latest version, please contact us through our own website (can’t put a link here, sorry, it’s against TOS of this site) so we can help you update it to the latest version; that “difstheme.old” should also be moved out of the /wp-content/themes directory.
I named difsthme.old because it broke my WP installation. That is theme 2.4. Is there a later version?
Where the HECK do I download the latest version?
Why was I give an old version when I purchased??????????????????
Updated to Version 2.4.7…
After you click the link, sending a verification email, for some reason the subject title for the confirmation email (it doesn’t happen on the initial verification email) looks like this:
Hw�A�q�q$�* ��� ��� o��r�’ ��=�
(1) Since the the Highest Offer updates immediately (before the submitter has verified their email) is there a cron job looking to remove those offers if verification goes unanswered for some period of time? If not, shouldn’t there be an initial status set (like pending) where the offer does not show up until they verify and the status is changed to Verified? Seems like one of the two would be required – probably the later from a functionality standpoint.
(2) Small thing, but should have the verification link land in the theme (maybe a static page that says “You’re verified!” or something). I mean, it’s just a landing page for after the software has already used the verification link to change their status to “Verified” or whatever, right?
(3) Does saving a custom (single domain) configuration also clear the cache on that domain? How do you clear the main domain name cache?
Thanks for reporting this! could you please forward the broken email, we need it to check it.
You are right about the 1st, I think both are very much necessary, I’ll queue them thank you! the 2nd will be added in a few weeks; as for the 3rd, it depends on what you have changed, currently any configuration that would affect the domain list triggers the “cache: clear” function otherwise it allows the user to decide when it’s a good time to clear the cache and so on, and the main domain can get its cache cleared just like other domains (clear the cache for this domain) or together with the rest by clicking clear the cache for “all domains”.
A very quick and friendly support, thank you!
I checked my the main domain is not for sale and in the front page I found that make an offer tab disappeared for all the domains parked in. What is the issue here?
We’ve just replied to your support ticket
How to remove tags please?
You can remove them through WP backend -> “Domain For Sale” -> Configuration -> Tags, or just prevent them from appearing on the domain list via “Domain For Sale” -> Configuration -> Portfolio.
I bought this, installed it. It’s very buggy, gave up. a month or two later I tried to install the latest version, too complicated, wasted an hour an a half, nothing updated.
Came back 7 months later and they want another $21.88 and I never got to use it to begin with, my support expired. Just make the thing update automatically inside the wordpress dashboard please. I have better ways to spend my time then navigating endless websites to find my License number Invoice number and creating an API. Could be much more user friendly.
“Your support for this item has expired. You may still leave a comment but please renew support if you are asking the author for help.”
Thank you for your purchase and sorry to see this.
As a matter of fact all the commercial plugins (and themes) require some kind of verification of purchase before they allow the user to receive updates and use them (be it automatic or not). Also, if you had trouble installing the plugin you had to contact our support back then not to give up
Anyway, please send us some admin credentials through our profile page, we’ll setup the plugin for you and enable automatic updates for it too.
Wow, thanks guys, I really appreciate the fast support.
May I ask how to make the Full Name in the “Make Offer” Page a required field?
Thanks for you answer! Joe
Right now it’s not possible to make it required, but we may consider adding this feature in later version, depending on how it may affect lead generation though.
Is it possible to add a Buy-It-Now button that allows the buyer to pay immediately?
Thank you for your interest!
If you mean something like escrow.com buttons yes indeed there’s a “Custom HTML” option (Domain For Sale -> Configuration) which would allow you to add escrow.com buttons to the form (we don’t recommend PayPal buttons).
Any other questions we’d be glad to answer
Use, by you or one client, in a single end product which end users are not charged for. The total price includes the item price and a buyer fee.
