The Best Building WordPress Theme Needs to do a Lot More Than Just Present Your Building to the Public.
If you’ve decided on WordPress as your CMS (Content Management System) of choice when it comes to powering your building’s website, then it’s time to start looking for a theme can can help you present your building to the public. At Turf.Press we have just what you’re looking for. Here is a peak at our apartment building website theme.
BUILDING WEBSITE THEME
YOU NEED MORE THAN JUST A THEME
A theme for your building’s website needs to do a lot more than just make your building look good online. There are a whole host of considerations you need to think about as a property manager or owner.
The Turf.Press apartment building WordPress theme does all of the following.
BUILDING THEME FEATURES:
– Countless design templates.
– An easy to use drag and drop visual builder.
– Built-in A/B testing tools so you can test multiple designs in order to see which one converts the best.
– Built-in email marketing software and drip email tools.
Plus, the theme comes with all of the plugins you’ll need to make sure your building’s website can perform all of your backe-end property management tasks including:
– Tenant portal plugin
– Payments plugin (one-time AND recurring subscriptions)
– Community plugin (social network for your tenants)
– Maintenance request plugin
– Incident report plugin
– Built-in tenant messaging and push notifications
– Tenant to tenant messaging
– Tenant account pages
– e-Leases (online contracts with digital signatures)
– Property listing plugin (to help you market vacancies)
– Building events plugin
– Building groups (for example, if you wanted your residents to sign up for any of your building’s groups such a running group, chess club or reading group)
– Website security plugins
– And much more.
The Turf.Press platform uses the Divi Theme, which is a powerful premium theme which comes bundled within our platform. The Divi Theme easily integrates with our other plugins (such as our property listing plugin, our booking plugin or our payment subscription plugin) in order to create a frictionless experience between the different parts of our system. Ensuring compatibility between your theme and all of your plugins is no easy task. You need to ensure that your design standards apply to all of the moving parts within your building’s website. Again, at Turf.Press, we’ve done all of this for you.
The front-end of your website has been designed in a way to give you full control over the look and feel of your building’s website. You can easily drag and drop design assets around, change your website theme’s font, color and pretty much any design element you can think of.
PROPERTY LISTINGS PAGE
The Turf.Press platform also has a built-in property listing page where you can post your vacant apartments. The system is also designed in a way that makes it easy for your building managers to quickly and easily add new listings into your website and then display them in the front-end in the most visually appealing way possible. You can see a sample listing page below.
The Turf.Press apartment building WordPress theme is also compatible on all mobile devices. Below you can see an example of how your building’s website will look on mobile devices.
THE TURF.PRESS BUILDING WORDPRESS THEME BACKEND
The power of the Turf.Press system is found in the platform’s back-end. No other software or tool on the market provides you with such a broad range of backend features for your building or condo’s website.
Let me cover a few of those backend features now.
ADMIN AND TENANT LOGIN PERMISSIONS AND REDIRECT RULES
As mentioned previously, a building WordPress theme needs to do a lot more than just make you look good. In fact, the requirements of building websites are quite complex. You need to establish user login logic such as user permissions, redirect rules and much more.
For example, when a property manager or admin logs into the system they should be able to access different parts of the site than your tenants. Similarly, website menus need to change if the user is a logged in user or a logged out user. With the Turf.Press apartment theme, this is already all built into the system for you. There is nothing you need to setup.
POWERFUL COMMUNITY FEATURES
The Turf.Press building WordPress theme was also built with BuddyPress which gives you the ability to create a powerful social backend for your tenants. For example, tenants can create social profiles on your website and then post updates, images or other forms of information on their wall. They can also comment on other tenant’s posts. Our buddypress integration helps ensure your tenants feel like they are part of your building’s community.
Through our BuddyPress integration, tentants can also do things like add friends, set their privacy settings, upload images, join groups and receive instant notifications when someone mentions them or tags them in a post.
EASY ADMIN INTERFACE
Since your Turf.Press website will be built on WordPress, the back-end will likely be familiar to you. The back-end admin area is intuitive and easy to use. Below you will see an image of what your building managers or building owners will see when they login.
