In the search field type ”Property Hive” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking ”Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading the Property Hive plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

Was introduced to Property Hive and was sceptical. I have used many new tools when building websites and many look good but fall along the way. Property Hive was simple to add and activate. Most importantly the support from their team was excellent and gives me absolute confidence that this is an excellent choice to add to a property website. Thank you and hope to use Property Hive on many other sites in the future.

A great plugin that meets all the basic and advanced needs of my estate agency website. Great customisation features making this plugin seamlessly fit with the design of my website. The support has really been above and beyond (special shout out to Steve); I felt bad at times for sending so many emails but nothing was too much trouble. Timely and prompt replies. Thank you so much! 🙂

I would highly recommend Property Hive to anyone looking for superb customer experience and a top-notch product. Their commitment to excellence is evident in everything they do. Thanks to Steve Marks for going out of his way to resolve our confusions - his professionalism and expertise were out of this world.

Flexible property solution well supported. We have used Property Hive for many years for our Estate agent websites. The support is fantastic !
24 oktober 2023
This is one of the best-supported plugins I have ever used. I have contacted PropertyHive several times over the years and asked them how to do certain things such as custom import frequencies and having property carousels which are now included in the main plugin for everyone.We even offered to pay for some development time, but they did the work, rolled out the updates to everyone, and didn't charge us anything. Keep up the great work
