How to change the number of listings in the archive?

If you’re look­ing to change the num­ber of items in the list­ings archive you just need to go to List­ings → Set­tings → List­ings Per Page field and change the val­ue right there. Just hit the Save Changes but­ton and everything’s done for now.

You can also mod­i­fy the num­ber of list­ings by adding the per_page argu­ment to the [jobs] short­code. To do this par­tic­u­lar change, just fol­low the fol­low­ing steps:

  1. Go to List­ings → Set­tings → Pages;
  2. Check what is the page set for the List­ing List­ings Page field;
  3. Edit the page found on the pre­vi­ous step (by going to Pages area);
  4. Add the per_page attribute to the [jobs] short­code and make it look like this:
    [jobs per_page="20"]

What if I’m using the FacetWP plugin and this change doesn’t do the trick?

The con­trol over the list­ings archive is man­aged by FacetWP, which means that chang­ing the num­ber of list­ings is a bit dif­fer­ent. To make it hap­pen you need to fol­low these instruc­tions:

  1. Go to Set­tings → FacetWP;
  2. Click List­ings on the right side, under the Tem­plates sec­tion;
  3. Click Open query builder on the right side;
  4. Select List­ings for the Fetch field;
  5. Change the num­ber of list­ings on the Show posts per page field;
  6. Hit Send to edi­tor but­ton;
  7. Click Save changes on the right cor­ner.
