    Default getting the free external featured listing addon working

    I currently do not have my open realty install utilizing my website template, thus open realty is in a separate directory. How do I modify the external feature addon to take this into account. Right now when I add the listings to my homepage the link that is produced does not have the open realty directory path listed in it.


    this is just a test to see if it was working at all, you will notice that the links are dead. they need to have "openrealty" inserted in them after my domain name. Thank you

    Did you do step 3 of the install instructions?

    my extfeat.php file reads as follows

    <?PHP
    $OR_URL="http://www.robbenterprises.com/openrealty"; //without trailing slash

    // do not edit
    $url=$OR_URL.'/index.php?action=addon_extfeat_show&popup=yes';
    $ch = curl_init($url);
    ob_start();
    curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);
    $data = ob_get_contents();
    ob_end_clean();
    echo $data;
    ?>

    open realty is installed in "openrealty" as stated in the second line above. The listings show up on my external page, but the link reads, as an example

    http://www.robbenterprises.com/listi...%2C-ma-10.html

    There needs to be "openrealty" after .com/

    Thank you.

    In your featured listings template change {featured_url} to {base_url}/{featured_url}.

    Thank you for the help. Unfortunately it did not work for me. I must have something else wrong somewhere because it did not change the URL at all. Do you have any other ideas?

    Sorry. It should be {baseurl}

    Thank you for the help, that solved the problem perfectly, and thank you for replying so fast. I will start working on migrating my site to be an actual template and hopefully that will make life easier in the future.

    hi, i was having the same problem, but when it is fixed, when i use the fetured listings template inside of OR the featured listings url ends up as
    http://myurl.com/OR/{baseurl}/index.php?action=listingview&listingID=8


    is there a way to fix it so that both will work properly?

    thanks

    I am really unsure, there are many people here that are more knowledgeably but are you using the right tag both inside and outside of the install? There is the external tag and the other tag for use inside open realty I believe. Double check you are doing the right thing and hope someone else comments here.

    i fixed it, i hardcoded the main url into the featured_listings_.html page, so where the link is i pt http://myurl.com/OR/{featured_url}

    and it works for both
