Managing the “Single Listing” Page

With Listable we’ve adapt­ed the famous WP Job Man­ag­er inter­face, added the nec­es­sary fea­tures and cre­ate an easy to use the sys­tem so you can cre­ate, man­age and mon­e­tize a local or glob­al direc­to­ry site.

After you’ve fol­lowed the Get­ting Start­ed guide, you can start adding list­ings. Find out how below.

Adding and Managing Listings

There are two ways to add a list­ing: through the Word­Press Dash­board or direct­ly from the Fron­tend, through the “Add a List­ing” page. If you’re han­dling the list­ings by your­self, add them through Dash­board → List­ings → Add New page.

There is a love­ly step-by-step guide, right inside the Add New page inter­face — this will sure­ly get your way to adding your first list­ing.

*Note: You can still refer to the Adding Jobs via Admin arti­cle from the offi­cial WP Job Man­ag­er doc­u­men­ta­tion, even if some fields were changed to make things eas­i­er, the struc­ture is the same.

Adjusting The Listing Layout

The ele­ments on the list­ing page are care­ful­ly placed to ensure a good hier­ar­chy through­out the page. Depend­ing on your needs, you can change their order and place­ment using the avail­able Wid­getized AreasMan­age them from Appear­ance → Cus­tomize → Wid­gets and nav­i­gate to the Sin­gle List­ing page.

  1. Sin­gle List­ing » Con­tent — The wider area where the main list­ing con­tent should go.
  2. Sin­gle List­ing » Side­bar Top — Placed at the top of the right side­bar, this area puts each wid­get in a visu­al­ly dif­fer­ent boxed con­tain­er.
  3. Sin­gle List­ing » Side­bar Bot­tom — Placed below the Side­bar Top, this area brings togeth­er all the wid­gets under the same con­tain­er.

Cur­rent­ly, the fol­low­ing wid­gets are avail­able:

  1. List­ing » Actions — But­tons like “Write a Review”, “Share” or “Add to Favorites”.
  2. List­ing » Con­tent - Dis­plays the main list­ing con­tent.
  3. List­ing » Reviews — Dis­plays a list of recent reviews and the sub­mis­sion form.
  4. List­ing » Loca­tion Map - A Map View of the list­ing loca­tion along with a Direc­tions link to Google Maps.
  5. List­ing » Cat­e­gories - The list­ing cat­e­gories along with relat­ed icons.
  6. List­ing » Hours — The Hours field con­tent.
  7. List­ing » Gallery Images - The attached images in a gallery grid for­mat
  8. List­ing » Tags - Used to dis­play tags or ameni­ties (option­al using the Tags plu­g­in)

*Note: Those wid­gets work only in the above-men­tioned wid­get areas.


This article applies to Listable, as they share the same underlying structure.
