This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Car Demon


The Car Demon PlugIn is full of features. It has a general contact form, service appointment form, service quote form, trade-in form, a finance application and a vehicle information form all with AdfXml support.

It also contains a powerful inventory management tool with optional VinQuery Decode Integration, compare vehicles tool, multiple location support and a whole lot more.

What can Car Demon do?

Car Demon is a powerful tool that manages the most important aspects of a vehicles sales website.

It’s used for more than just Car Dealers, it’s used for selling RVs, Boats, Campers, Motorcycles, Trailers, Semi-Trucks and even Planes.

If you’re building a car dealer or vehicle sales website Car Demon gives you the wicked powers you need.

Full Featured Inventory Control

Use the inventory shortcode, [cd_inventory] and drop your vehicles onto any page.

The inventory shortcode accepts the following parameters;

title, year, make, model, condition, body_style, transmission, location, stock, criteria (keyword search), min_price, max_price, mileage (searches vehicles with less than the mileage entered) & show_sold

For example, you can create a page to show just ford trucks;
[cd_inventory title=”Ford Trucks” make=”ford” body_style=”truck”]

Car Demon also supports custom theme pages by utilizing the custom post type cars_for_sale.

To give you even more power you can assign search forms to the page your shortcode is on and search just those items.

To make sure your search forms point to the correct result page you can set the result_page parameter for the search form widget or use it in the search form shortcode;

[search_form size=1 result_page=”the url to your inventory shortcode page”]

You have the option to enable a compare vehicle tool and the power to enable an auto load feature that continually loads inventory without the need to click on the next page.

Easy to Use Admin Area

The settings area has a Startup Guide to walk through your initial setup and get you up and running as fast as possible.

Turn features on and off easily letting you customize your site with ease.

Inventory management is a snap, quickly add and remove vehicles, upload photos & change prices.


  • This is a quick look at the inventory management screen. You can quickly change prices and mark vehicles sold without opening each vehicle.

  • Here’s a glance of what you can do with Car Demon and some of it’s extensions. The site you see here is using the basic Car Demon Theme. For more information visit our website;


This plugin provides 3 blocks.

  • Car Demon
  • Car Demon
  • Car Demon


Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.

Go to your admin area and expand the menu for “Cars for Sale” and click on “Car Demon Settings”.

Walk through the Startup Guide and adjust your settings as desired.

Use shortcodes to create your inventory page(s), forms, staff highlights & more.

Make sure you’ve setup your Location Settings: Dashboard->Cars For Sale->Location Settings

If you sell vehicles at more than one location then, click on locations from the Cars For Sale Menu and add an entry for each lot.

After you have setup your locations click on “Location Settings”, fill out and save the form for each location, INCLUDING THE DEFAULT.

It is important to check and make sure your Finance Disclaimer and Descriptions are legal for your location.

We take no responsibility for the legality of the default entries.

Adjust your theme settings and add widgets as desired.

You’re now ready to start adding vehicles to your site.

Please make sure you add a price to your vehicles. If you don’t wish the price to be seen you can select “Do Not Show Prices” on the location settings page.

Vehicles will not display in the search results until they have been marked published AND a price has been added to them, even if it’s just a 0 price.

Finally, go to your admin area and click settings, then select permalinks. Add this as a custom permalink; /%postname%/%post_id%


ਅਕਸਰ ਪੁੱਛੇ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਸਵਾਲ

  • How do I view just a basic list of my vehicles?

First go to your admin area and click settings, then select permalinks. Add this as a custom permalink; /%postname%/%post_id%

Then use the inventory shortcode, [cd_inventory] and drop your vehicles onto any page.

The inventory shortcode accepts the following parameters;

title, year, make, model, condition, body_style, transmission, location, stock, criteria (keyword search), min_price, max_price, mileage (searches vehicles with less than the mileage entered) & show_sold

For example, you can create a page to show just ford trucks;
[cd_inventory title=”Ford Trucks” make=”ford” body_style=”truck”]

  • Why don’t my vehicles appear in the search even though I’ve published them?

Please make sure you add an “Asking Price” to your vehicles, even if it’s a 0 price.

If you don’t wish the price to be seen you can select “Do Not Show Prices” on the location settings page.

  • Why don’t my vehicles have titles even though I’ve entered a title for them?

By default Car Demon will display vehicles titles as Year Make Model Stock #, the title field is currently only used for descriptive purposes on the back end.

You can tell Car Demon to use the vehicle title field in the admin settings.

  • How do I get the inventory to load new vehicles when I scroll to the bottom of the page?

Make sure you install the WP-Pagenavi PlugIn. It not only creates awesome pagination, but by default it will help the autoload feature function.

The Car Demon PlugIn looks for the existing page navigation with specific id tags and uses those as an indicator for when the page has ended and which set of vehicles to load next.

The auto inventory load has a few options in the backend that can be tweaked to work with different layouts and without WP-Pagenavi if needed.

  • Does Car Demon have any hooks, filters or shortcodes for developers to use?

Yes it does. Please visit our website and look in our blog for developer resources.

  • Does Car Demon use taxonomies for categorizing vehicles and how can I leverage that?

Yes, Car Demon uses several custom taxonomies; condition, body_style, vehicle_year, make, model and location.

These can be used to create pages containing vehicle categories, for example;

Let’s say you want to provide links to all the different body styles, to link to all of the coupes in inventory.

You would create a link to http:/ to link to all trucks it would be http:/

You can use the same logic to leverage the other custom taxonomies as well.

You will need to create custom template pages for your theme/child theme to take full advantage of this feature.

Please check our website,, for more information.

  • I’m having trouble using custom taxonomies, I keep getting a 404 or page not found error.

Make sure you update your permalinks to /%postname%/%post_id% this should resolve most issues with using custom taxonomies.

  • How do I override the vehicle inventory and display pages?

Car Demon has several hooks & filters you can take advantage of and tweak or completely redesign the vehicle display, search forms and more.

Please check our website,, for more information.

  • How do I use the shortcodes to include forms in my pages?

Shortcodes can be used without arguments and will display a radio selection to determine the location to send the form.

Shortcodes for [part_request], [service_request], [service_quote], [trade] & [finance_form] now have the optional argument “location” added to them.

The location argument accepts the name assigned to that form for the location you wish to send the form to and hides the radio selection.

For example, let’s say you have a location called “Our Used Car Lot” and you have two different part departments, one that handle domestic vehicle parts and one that handles imported vehicle parts.

You will need to create 2 locations “Our Used Car Lot Domestic” and “Our Used Car Lot Imports”.

Under location settings you would enter a different name for Parts under both locations, ie “Domestic Parts” & “Import Parts”.

You can now use the part_request shortcode on two different pages and route each one to the correct department.
Exp. [part_request location=”Domestic Parts”] and [part_request location=”Import Parts”]

  • I only have one location, how do I hide the location radio buttons on my forms?

You will need to set the location argument for your form shortcodes to the form’s contact name entered under the default location.
Exp. [part_request location=”Default Part Name”], this will hide the location radio buttons.

  • How do I get rid of the drop down on the Contact Us Form? I want it to always go to the same person.

The contact form shortcode, [contact_us], has an argument of “send_to” that accepts a single email address.

If you set this argument in your shortcode it will hide the drop down and send the contact form to the address you supplied.
Exp. [contact_us send_to=””]

  • How do I add a form as a Popup?

Two new optional arguments have been added to several of the form shortcodes; popup_id and popup_button.

These may be used with the following shortcodes; contact_us, part_request, service_form & service_quote
At this time they are NOT available for; trade or finance_form

By setting the popup_id argument to a unique value you tell Car Demon to simply add a button to the page that opens your form in a popup lightbox.

The popup_button argument allows you to customize what the button says.

For Example [part_request popup_id=”1″ popup_button=”Request Parts”] this would create a button that says “Request Parts” which opens the parts request form in a popup lightbox.

Car Demons plugin developers look like they are on the right track, however this plugin does not have the bugs worked out yet. Also, there is not any support. I paid for the Pro version and there is never any reply to their contact forms or the support forum. I can see that in the past they did reply to support forum requests but there have not been any responses to support requests during the last 2 years.

I needed help and custom work, Jay responded to my request and handled everything quickly & professionally, going above and beyond what was expected of him. I would recommend to anyone. Great price for plugins and an awesome price for custom work. Thanks for everything, you made it very easy for me to get my site up and running quickly & efficiently!

Hello, We recently installed Car Demon, along with purchasing multiple Car Demon add-ons (marco-transactions) that costed hundreds of dollars. We were already working with a local business that had their own development team. They thought this would be an easy setup because the screen shots looked promising. On the first initial setup, it wasn’t impressive at all. This plugin is pure bare bones to start with. So the development team put in a lot of work to get it to look reasonable. I decided to take a crack at it. I don’t consider myself a WordPress Developer by any means but I’ve worked with html, css, java, javascript, php, mysql and c/c++ over the years but Car Demon is quite a mess when you start digging into it. We thought we could continue using the plugin, but in the end we just could no longer use it for our purpose. Based off the screenshots, it’s very misleading. I have to consider Car Demon bloatware too. It was pulling in about 40-45 requests on every single page that loaded. I can see 5-10 requests but 40+ requests is insane for just one plugin. Also, when we updated to WordPress 5.2.4 on October 14th…it started to cause glitches to our inventory. I believe the plugin is worth 1/5 stars but I have to give an extra star for Jay who responded to my message quickly and professionally.

Unfortunately I have no good experiences with the operation of the plugin and the support. In my case, the plugin did not work with the Jupiter template and Jay could not solve it. He then promised to help me with some developing issues but after delivering log-in codes and information I never heard from him again. Even after sending a number of reminders, there has never been any response.

I’m very pleased with what I’ve been able to accomplish with this plugin. By making use of a couple of the Car Demon add-ons, we have ended up with a finished product that is all that we had hoped it could be. But even more impressive is the support that we have received along the way. Jay’s customer service is superb! He’s quick to respond, honest and helpful. He has gone above and beyond to help us get Car Demon set up on our website just as we want it.

Added this plugin with the import inventory plugin (Also Car Demon) to use with a data feed from Auto-trader. *note- Currently only the development version lets you implement the AutoTrader feed due to the use of a Caret as a separator (^). It was a learning curve to get everything into place but Jay from the support team went above and beyond to ensure that I got it in place and functioning for the client! Thanks again!
