Another item I found no documentation on, but muddled through myself ...
I had no idea how to get the image to show on my Properties For Sale page, but I attached an image to a listing I created and that seems to do the trick. I'm WP noob and don't fully understand the "attach" command for images, but I guess this sort of explains it. But what if I want to use that image again?
Like in the case of using dummy images that can be replaced later. Or if the image is of a rendering of a building that's under construction. Do I have to upload the image multiple times?
Thank you.January 18, 2013 at 7:16 am #12828
No, you should have to upload the same images over and over. Just click your media button and search through the images you uploaded already and then insert them.January 18, 2013 at 12:08 pm #12890
My question is regarding attaching an image more than once, not inserting.
I'm attaching them to a listing. I think this is how I'm supposed to make the image show up with the other parameters.January 18, 2013 at 12:58 pm #12899
I am confused by the word "attach". How are you "attaching them". They have to be uploaded via the use of the media button and then "inserted" which is the language used when adding images. The images you upload are stored in your media directory. If you want to use them in multiple listings - you can search the media directory and use them.January 18, 2013 at 1:51 pm #12910
Okay, I have no idea what was going on, but I got it to work now. I had inserted images into the listing, but they weren't showing up on the property status pages. When I attached one (via Media Library under the "Uploaded to" column), it seemed to work so I thought that's how I was supposed to do it.
As I was writing a long-winded response, something told me it should be easier than that so I created a new listing and added an image and that worked fine. I have no idea why the others aren't working, but by deleting the image and putting it back in, it seems to be fine. Weird.
Thanks for your help and patience, I really appreciate it! I'm sure I'll have more questions while working on this project!January 18, 2013 at 3:10 pm #12933
Another, related question...
So, I'm inserting the image into the listing and the thumbnail automatically shows up on the search page - cool. But, then I decide I want to use a different one and it doesn't update the thumbnail. What am I doing wrong? It seems like sometimes it does, but mostly not. I found that assigning the "Featured Image" does the trick.
Is that the way I'm supposed to be doing it?March 13, 2013 at 3:00 pm #26003
@jodzee With AgentPress, you have to use the Featured Image to choose the thumbnail for all the listings. On the single-listing pages, you'll need to use the "Insert Media" button above your editor to embed any images you want to appear on a given listing.
