    Unhappy i'm new to O.R./are there any good sites??

    are there any high end open realty sites?? every oR site i look at looks like it was done in 1992. i'm a business owner looking for a new site and examples of good or even marginal sites are non existant. it's great that its free and all but if it looks like junk no one will call me. are there any good IDX add onsor maping addons? is there a list somewhere of addons that actually shows what the addon is???

    i don't know if open realty is for me,

    OR is great ...

    First of all - you design what you want and you can wrap OR around your desgins.

    Check out the "show off your site" section below there are some great ones.

    There is even this pet site that lists PETS not RE - that is awsome.

    Go for it !

    How an Open-Realty (OR) site looks has absolutely nothing to do with OR and everything to do with the creative abilities of the designer who crafted the design template (a.k.a. skin).

    The default template that comes with OR does look rather shabby and a lot of do-it-yourself types using OR don't even realize the template can be changed. The default OR template isn't actually intended to look good, just simply work. Look at the post in the announcements area here for the OR template competition, one or 2 of those templates are going to be included as a part of the default OR install I understand.

    Commercial IDX/RETS add-ons for OR can be found at:

    I am pretty proud of these 2.

    www.brinrealty.com

    www.souheganhomes.com

    These are joomla/OR sites hosting about 20,000 listings each. They have up to 12 photos each. the Brinrealty site also has a video section.

    As stated earlier, it is up to the person implementing the site to make it what it is. With the great programs available through the Open Source community you can do some pretty amazing things.

    Just for the record, I dont program and dont know css or HTML.
