In this tutorial we are going to go over how to set up a listing feed to populate all of the individual listings you have created. Lets dive in.
To see some samples of listing feed pages we have created, you can view them at these links here:
Creating A Listing Feed
To generate a listing feed you will either first want to create a new page and edit it with cornerstone.
Or you can also navigate to an existing page and edit it with cornerstone.
Once in the cornerstone editing view, first you will want to select the appropriate page template from the settings tabs. The most common template used on AgentFire websites is Blank - No Container | Header, Footer.
Next you will want to add in a new section to your layout.
You will now want to drag our AgentFire Listings cornerstone element into your new section.
By clicking on the element you can now begin to edit its settings.
Editing The Element
Within our AgentFire Listings Cornerstone element there are multiple customization options available so that you can create a feed that suites your specific needs. Lets look at a few of the common settings you will want to be aware of.
First you can filter the feed results to only display listings from specific categories defined by location, status and property type.
Next you have a couple different options to adjust the page layout as well as the look of your listing's previews.
After that you have some common sorting options you can select from regarding date and price.
Finally you have some settings to adjust the look and feel of your listings page.
Now one cool trick you may want to utilize is when displaying the map, also turn on the listings container.
Then in your section remove any padding that is applied.
Finally within your row, turn off the column container. Then boom, you have a nice full width map feel to your listing feed.
Generating A Shortcode
To generate a listing feed shortcode, first navigate to the WordPress editor and click on the small AgentFire icon in the toolbar.
It will then bring up your listing feed shortcode manager. Here you can define what listings should display in this specific feed and select its styling preferences.
After inserting the shortcode onto the page, you will need to set the template to no-container - header/footer.
Now you can go ahead and publish your page for your listing feed to display!
