Listing+, is another entry in our series of modern, mobile-first themes built on Bootstrap. As its name indicates, Listing+ is, well, a… listing theme, specifically tailored around real estate. As such, the theme has been designed to accommodate virtually endless real estate properties for rental or sale, making use of the power of Views combined with the flexibility of Quicktabs for nesting content nicely, in tiny (and not so tiny) bits of space.
Drupal is great for content-heavy sites—and Listing+ makes use of it
With its ever-growing list of modules, Drupal is a good candidate if you are looking to build and manage a big listing site, with lots of entries. You can build and manage your own content types, and you can create relationships among them.
Custom content types and interrelationships between nodes
Listing+ has been designed and built with its use case scenario in mind. It comes with custom built-in content types for Properties and Agents of properties, which are interconnected. An Agent can be associated with multiple properties—just like in real life. A visitor interested in a Property can easily get the contact information of the Agent—again, just like in real life. And if the visitor is not sure about their choice yet, adding a Property to their watch list comes in handy.
Searching, filtering and sorting
Another important thing when speaking of listing sites with lots of entries, is providing your visitors ways to search by various criteria, to filter and to sort the results according to their needs. Listing+ has this functionality built-in, making the most of exposed Views fields.
Cleverly designed layouts
Context is important. When your visitor views an node/entry in your listing site, you would want to serve them related results – with similar properties, perhaps even ones currently on offer – within the context provided in a sidebar column.
Responsive is great, mobile-first is better.
Like all our recent themes, Listing+ is built on great foundation—the most popular front-end framework for developing responsive, “mobile-first” projects on the web. And, further to that, it features several additional goodies like OS-specific as well as custom mobile navigation options, so you can pick whatever you want to offer your users. The importance of this becomes evident if you consider that nearly 70% of all internet traffic nowadays takes place via mobile devices. Listing+ has you covered in terms of the way it renders your site for your visitors on mobile.
Full-width and Boxed layout
With Listing+ you can choose whether you want a full-width or a boxed layout, with just a single click from the theme settings. Both look and function great, so it’s all about your goals and preferences.
Multiple colors, fonts & more
Listing+ comes in 13 carefully selected, awesome color schemes to choose from: Gray and Blue, Green, Orange, Red, Pink, Purple each of which in two different versions. Just pick the one that fits your brand with a single click through the theme-settings.
HTML5 and CSS3
State-of-the-art code base, using HTML5 and CSS3, compliant with best practices and avoiding hacks and workarounds that could break things along the way.
Google Map integrated with Views-powered goodness
Listing+ comes with a custom Google Maps and Views integration, which provides directions and more info on any entered Property, with a single click.
Add to watch list
All our latest business related themes for the past one and a half year integrated with Drupal Commerce. Further to the fact that it’s great, Drupal Commerce did fit into the use-case scenario in all those cases.
For a theme around real estate Drupal Commerce doesn’t fit in the use case scenario (who would… add those two houses to cart, then check out?). What did fit though is a watch list. Adding the entries you’re interested in, in a list is a great idea. Which is why we’ve incorporated “Add to watch list” functionality in Listing+.
