Add or Remove items from the Menu

To add or remove items from the main menu that shows at the top of the screen we need to access WordPress menu options. It is beyond the scope of our support to get into too much detail on how WordPress works but we wanted to include how to edit the menu since that is fairly important. Some of you may already be up to speed on WordPress so you probably don't even have to read this in that case!

To edit the menu, add '/wp-admin/nav-menus.php' after your site name in the browser url bar at the top of your browser page. So if your site name is: https://mysite.ll2c.com, then after adding it in the browser it would read:

https://mysite.ll2c.com/wp-admin/nav-menus.php

Hit enter to load the WordPress menu editor for your site. You will see a screen similar to the one above. We selected MENU1 which is the main menu to edit. So for example if you would like to rename the 'Neighborhoods' menu item to Areas, click to the right of the Neighborhood menu item where is says 'custom link' and it will show that menu item's properties. To rename it you would enter the new name where it says 'Navigation Label'.

When finished click 'Save Menu'. You can also remove the item from the same properties view as shown above. The are a multitude of other things you can do with menus, but it would be advisable to read about all of that online or from here: WordPress menus.

    • Go to pages and click pages, Add a New page
      The pages link can be found at yoursite.com/wp-admin  (add wp-admin to the end)

Note about forms:
Our custom Landing pages have forms already imbedded that will send the leads to your Open House Wizard account. If you are creating a Landing Page that does not already have a form then to add a form that will work the correct way:

    • Add a Text module in Beaver Builder to the page
    • In the Text module past this code: (After copying, remove the 'space' before the word 'gravityform')
      [ gravityform id="22" title="false" description="false" ajax="true"]

The Property and Agent Bio pages will automatically send any Visitor inquiries directly to you.

**For Team or Broker sites Individual Agents can still use these pages as Landing pages and receive any inquiries that are made.  To do this:

Add: ?agentid=your_agent_id to the end of the Landing page url. More info below.

  • Home Value I
    (Add /home-value/ to your website url to see the page)
  • Home Value II
    (Add /home-value-2/ to your website url to see the page)
We have included 8 custom Landing page templates that you can use as starting points to easily create your own landing pages.

Besides those templates there are many many more in our Templates dropdown in Beaver Builder. Once in Beaver Builder choose the + icon on the top right, then choose Templates, then Saved templates to see our custom templates.

**MORE INFORMATION ON LANDING PAGES FOR TEAMS & BROKERS

Did you know that any page on your website can be used as a personal Landing Page by any agent that is a part of the Team or Broker website?  It just involves adding your Agent ID and/or our full page code to the end of pretty much any url or page address on the site.  **Your Agent ID can be found on the Open House Wizard Account & Billing page under Websites.

Add your Agent ID to a Page to Receive any Inquiries from that page Remove the Header (top menu bar) and the Footer (Lower info bar at the bottom of the page) to make any page a true Landing Page. Combine both methods to have a Landing page that has no Header or Footer and has your Agent ID for any Inquiries.
Add: ?agentid=your_agent_id to the end of any pages url.

An example for the Buyers page:
yoursite.com/buyers/?agentid=20211

You can find your Agent ID on the Websites page under Open House Wizard's Account & Billing page.

To make any page such as a Property or Listing page a perfect landing page with no menu bar at the top and no info bar at the bottom, just add: ?makelp  to the end of the page's url or address.

An example is:
ll2c.com/property/99-oak-st/?makelp

You can also use any Property or Listing page as an Un-Branded MLS Virtual Tour.  Simply add: ?mls=yes to the end of the property's url or address.

An example is:
ll2c.com/property/99-oak-st/?mls=yes

To Add your Agent ID AND remove the top and bottom bars, just add this to any url or page address:
?agentid=your_agent_id&makelp
An example would look like this: ll2c.com/buyers/?agentid=20211&makelpNote the '&' is used to combine the agent id with makelp.
