Requirements for Setup:
The customer should have filled out the worksheet for the listings and respective fields that we can manually enter.
Use the taxonomy creation tool to create your own way of classifying listings (i.e. bedrooms, bathrooms, locations, price ranges) and use those taxonomies to allow users to search for listings. Then, reorder the taxonomies as needed. Find listings by taxonomy using filters in the WordPress admin.
Single listings display the custom data automatically with no need to insert shortcodes to display listing data. If it’s entered, it will display on the page. Don’t want to show the price on a listing? Check a box and the price is hidden. That simple. Supported property fields:
Lot Square Feet
Open House date and time
Video or virtual tour
