Open-Realty & IDXManager
Open Realty is a gift. We used it to develop a highly customized website with an automated IDX feed, and were impressed with the results. This software program is flexible and stable with an active community forum for peer support. It laid a solid foundation for our unique customization needs.
With our high-profile client, we also needed some other services tailored to our specific needs. In addition to purchasing the IDX Manager add-on from Transparent Technologies, we also signed up for their hosting and technical support packages. This was probably the best decision we made in our website development process. The team at Transparent Technologies was exceptionally helpful, responding to each of our development requests within a day -- even on weekends and holidays (do they ever rest?). They not only provided useful technical solutions to problems we didn't even expect them to solve, but they also came loaded with important knowledge about MLS listing rules. Their advice was invaluable, and we couldn't have done it without them.

Found myself stuck when it came to my last host and upgrading to vs 3.x, you really did come to my rescue with the hosting and top notch support.
My client and myself are very satisfied and it's no doubt due to your continued support!

This past year has brought us to an interesting point in time. Open Realty 2.5.6 is out with lots of new features, The VOW policy is adopted by MLS's across the country and RETS servers are provided by most MLS' per NAR mandates.
With so many new technologies and business rules available it was time to upgrade my site to all of the latest software. I especially wanted to upgrade from my custom coded IDX importer to a RETS feed. I tried some of the open source RETS clients that are available. Especially the ones that are supposed to work with Open Realty. I then contacted Transparent Technologies about Transparent RETS.
You all were very helpful and took the time to assess my MLS’s server, finding some RETS standards compliance issues. ( this was a great help in getting the corrections made) As you know, I eventually bought the product and was elated to find that it was extremely easy to install and set up. The user interface is much better than other RETS Clients I tried and within minutes was connected to the RETS server and pulling data.
The TRETS client queried the server and displayed all of the property fields available. I simply went down the list and checked the fields I wanted to import and hit "Auto Map". The system automatically created all of the fields in my OR database! Brilliant! Setting up the queries to only import the data I wanted was also extremely easy and intuitive.
Literally, in 10 minutes I was pulling data into my site. It automatically cleaned up the database by removing old properties and it works with OR’s new property notification system. Something I was missing from my custom coded solution. The best part is that it is so easy to use that I do not worry about the MLS making data changes in the future. This is going to make my site much easier to maintain. I also feel the site is on a much better platform on which to add future capabilities.
Considering the many hours I spent with other products to get any data imported, and all the tinkering required for making changes to the import, I feel the cost of Transparent RETS was a bargain. The fact that you were there to help with identifying issues on my MLS’s server was also a huge benefit and something I would never have been able to do on my own.
I am looking forward to completing the implementation of my new site using this product. It truly is a huge improvement to my site.
I would recommend this product to anyone who is setting up an OR site and has a RETS server available. It is the way to go.
Thanks so much for this product.

I already have this idea of doing a multiple Realtor web sites with the capability to pool MLS database. Then, I found Open-Realty and that is! By tweaking of php scripts. I had done it! Without great help from Transparent Technologies, I wouldn't be able to do up Multiple linked Property Portal Web Sites. The flexibility to be able to configure access to hosting MySql is very important, only Transparent Technologies provide this feature.

We have been developing websites for clients for a number of years. We often have to deal with support departments and over the years we have found that many of these (probably the majority) have a poor or not so great support service. Often we have been of the thought that "we got their money now - so they can wait for the support" kind of attitude. "Transparent Technologies" have surpassed our best hopes for support. Not only is Open Realty a truly established and excellent product but the level of support, the turn around time, the amount of patience and commitment to quality service Transparent Technologies have given us - is simply astonishing. If there is anyone out there who has not made their minds up about purchasing the professional services from TT then we urge you to go with them. What price do you pay for true peace of mind in today's market of IT?
Thank you once again Transparent Technologies for your ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction. Simple Superb.

We are excited (and relieved) to announce the immediate availability of Open-Realty® v3.3 which provides initial support for PHP v7.0. Existing customers can obtain the update via one-click upgrade if supported, or from your customer area here at Transparent Technologies. A few new features and improvements worth mentioning are: A brand new Page API and some new Media API method types, improved localization, a new customizable template for adding saved searches, a re-work and standardization of the Property Class and User Field Editors, and the ability to include the primary listing photo when sending listings to Twitter.

PHP server requirements have changed: Do not attempt to upgrade Open-Realty if you are currently using PHP 5.5 or earlier.

Open-Realty® 3.2.12
12/28/2016 02:09 PM

Open-Realty v3.2.12 was released to address a potential, critical security vulnerability (CVE-2016-10033) that was very recently discovered in the 3rd party PHPMailer library. All previous versions of OR v3 are potentially affected, but only if you have your Mail System: setting in Site Config set to use "SMTP w/PHPMailer". Users that still use the default setting: "PHP Mail()" are unaffected.

Open-Realty® 3.2.9
09/23/2014 12:10 AM

There was a small problem with the release of v3.2.8 yesterday, so we took it down temporarily while we sorted things out. We have solved the problem, and restored access to the update servers. As a result we had to increment the OR version number so that anyone who already upgraded to v3.2.8 can detect and apply this update via the one-click upgrade feature.

Our apologies for any confusion or inconvenience this may have caused.

Open-Realty® 3.2.8
09/21/2014 05:34 PM

After a much longer than usual development cycle, we are pleased to announce the release of Open-Realty v3.2.8. This release provides support for PHP v5.5, PHP versions prior to PHP v5.3 can no longer be supported.

You may now reset a user's password and optionally have their signup email resent to them from the main User Manager page, and you may also set users to be active/inactive from the same page. A fair amount of code re-factoring was also performed on the user management and display functions while we were adding these features.

We've updated CKEditor to the latest version and switched to use the "full" version which provides for a few more useful WYSIWYG tools and options with better support for Internet Explorer.

Many significant layout changes to the OR Administration area were made to improve usability and to consolidate common styling items as a continuation of the administration area overhaul we began in OR v3.2.7.

How to create scrolling featured listings
10/15/2011 09:10 PM

One of the really great things about Open-Realty is how flexibile the design of your site can be. In the v3.1.9 release of Open-Realty we added a new block tag {listings_custom_search_result_block}. You can use this new tag to make some very cool widgets for your site. Today I am going to show you how to use this new tag to build a vertically scrolling featured listing widget. This does not require the use of an add-on, it is simply some simple JS, HTML, and CSS you are going to add to your template..
