We continuously refine and add new features to our websites. See our blog posts below.
- Find the groups from your Personal Facebook Profile (we can help as it’s not always easy).
- Join the groups (newcomers to most groups have to be approved by the group admin).
- Feed your properties to Facebook via your web-box Admin Console.
- Share them from Facebook to the Facebook Area Specific Groups you have chosen to join.
Have fun exploring Facebook!
We’ve been working on some improvements to the admin console and we would love to show them to you.
We have introduced a new Location Search on the Upload/Edit Property page. When you click on ‘add’ new locations you can now type in the location you want and the nearest matches will appear in a dropdown.
Should you have any difficulty with the new method, the old method is still available.
The other nifty function that is now active is the Auto Save function on the Upload Property page. When you enter property information and something goes wrong or you are distracted for a while, the page will now automatically save your information for 24 hours - you can go back to the Upload Property page and your information will still be there.
We think our changes are really cool, so go have a look and play around a bit!
You should have noticed over the last couple of weeks that your web-box website is loading faster. This is because we have just bought and installed a new state of the art web server that is very fast.
Not only is it very fast, but it is also extremely robust with redundant hard drives, power supplies and network cards. Redundant means that there is a duplicate device, so if one fails the second one automatically takes over without any down time.
It cost us a whole lot of money, but we know that it is well worth it as page load times are an integral part of your website user experience.
We hope you are enjoying your new zippier web-box experience.
You can choose to feed properties to your Personal Facebook Profile or your Facebook Business Page, or both, from your web-box admin console.
Although our standard websites work well on mobile phones, our new mobile websites display the properties optimally for the small screen with big pictures and easy navigation. See for yourself by going to www.providence-realty.co.za on your phone, you will see it redirects you to m.providence-realty.co.za. A whole new website off a separate web address, which has most, but not all, of the pages of the standard websites.
In setting up the mobile sites we have adhered to best practices as dictated by Google and others. Some of these being: large pictures; large text; easy navigation; SEO considerations; automatically displaying the mobile or the standard website based on the viewing device; links from the mobile site back to the standard website (and visa versa).
Should you want us to setup your mobile website at an additional cost of R100 + VAT per month, please fill out and return the following form or contact us.
As usual we have ensured that our pricing is as affordable as possible and that it is less than that of our competitors.
1. On the admin console properties page we have hidden the sold/rented properties. To view them again click on the link shown below.
At web-box we pride ourselves on the quality of our feeds to the portals. We believe we do it as well as can be done and that it is one of the things that differentiates us from the competition.
The ability for our clients to upload once and have their property appear on all portals is an enormous advantage to them.
Over the last month or 2 we have had some problems with certain portal feeds which have now been addressed. To help you (and us) easily see which feeds are working (or not) we have created a ‘feeds status’ page which shows the current status of each portal feed.
You can access this from your admin console via the 'Help' menu.
With the feeds now working well again we strongly encourage you to use the owner emails - the owners love seeing how you advertise their properties on the portals!
If you have feedback or questions please contact us, we would love to help you.
Lesego, our designer, has been hard at work creating a more modern and stylish look for our light sites. We think it looks really great ... and so has everyone we showed it to!
It makes us proud to produce such professional, elegant and user friendly websites.
To see what it looks like just click on the image above or go to our portfolio page and click on 'Light Websites'.
If you have a web-box light site, please let us know what you think of your new website by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org - we would love to know!
