    Hi,

    Hope this is the right place for this question. It is for Alan. No hurry if you are rather busy at the moment!!

    I created a website using Alan’s previous course on yourvacationrentalwebsite.com. Looking at this new website offering I can see that the finished product has has many similarities but some nice new features. As a starter presumably by not using the Accelerate theme there is more versatility in font etc. I’m happy with my current website and thinking that overall it is probably not worth creating a new one using the Vacation Soup giveaway but I’d be interested in Alan’s thoughts. Also, Alan, in creating this website a few years after the first, have you come across things that you think are an improvement that I could quite easily change or add to my website? I’m wondering about things I could change in my existing website without a full-scale start from scratch again. New or better plugins for example?

    Thanks,

    Susan

    Hello Susan,

    You don’t need to do anything in order to join the soup. You can use the plugin with your existing site.

    You could add more video and a submit a review page but last years sites are quite similar to the new sites

     

    Hope that helps

    Hi Alan,

    I love the new buttons on the bottom of the new sites (family owned, secure transactions …) can we get them if we have the old site?

    Thanks Alan.

    Merrill, I saw another post here somewhere where someone said the same thing and Alan suggested copying the pictures to your computer and then saving to your media library.  I tried this.  It took a bit of trial and error to manage to get the 6 pictures and captions nicely lined up in a row though!  Here’s the HTML that I used…

    [su_row]
    [su_column size=”1/6″]<img class="aligncenter wp-image-6998 size-full" src="http://Your deal direct picture.png” alt=”” width=”180″ height=”120″ />
    <p style=”text-align: center;”>Deal Direct With Owner</p>
    [/su_column]

    and then repeat this 5 more times with the other 5 pictures and wording, and finish with a [/su_row]

    I suspect there may be a simpler way to position the pictures and captions without fiddling with HTML but this worked for me. It doesn’t look quite the same as the new website, the gaps between the pictures is slightly bigger, but it’s good enough.
