Model Features - entry method

Each line represents a single feature block with each element separated by a vertical bar '|' located on the computer keyboard on the backslash key. Each feature block must be separated by 3 hyphens '---'.

This is the principle

Model Name|Square Feet|Rooms|Floors|photo gallery name

Example

Avalon II|2500sqft|4/3/2 Car|Single Storey|avalon2
---
Avalon III|2900sqft|4/3/3 Car|Single Storey|avalon3

Edit A Model

  • Use the category filter to select Avalon Home Models
  • Click the name of the model to edit
  • Click Extra Fields from the tabs above the text editor
  • Edit the description
  • Edit the model features if needed
  • Click the Image tab above the text editor to replace the single model image
  • Click the Content tab to edit the community and county details

Edit communities and build-on lot details

Click the tab labeled Content above the text editor

The text immediately before the horizontal bar is that which is displayed below each model's image on the model list page. This is called 'introtext'.

To add the introtext bar, click the place in the text area where you want to place the bar, then click the button labeled ReadMore below the text editor

Add Photo Gallery

  • Components > Simple Image Gallery
  • Click New
  • Add gallery name as a single word and best in all lowercase. The exact name is what will be used for the model feature block
    Example: Gallery name is bellavista1
    Bella Vista 1|3170sqft|4/3/3 Car|Single Floor|bellavista1
  • Click Add Images
  • Drag the images to the window
  • Click Save

Because there are 3 photo sets per model, you must create sub-galleries called 'floorplan' and 'elevation' within each model's gallery. Otherwise an error will occur.

Example:

Model gallery is 'bellavista1'

Sub directories paths would be 'bellavista1/floorplan' and 'bellavista1/elevations'. The path is entered in the field labeled Folder Name when adding new gallery
