The List of Listings shortcode is great for getting a quick list together for the home page or a neighborhood page. If you want to combine a search with a list then you want to use the Search List shortcode instead. If you are looking to show a few specific listings, look to the Featured Listings shortcode.
Creating the List of Listings shortcode
As with all of the shortcodes visit Shortcodes in the Placester plugin. Click the Create Custom Shortcode link and enter a title for the shortcode. Now select the list of listings from the type dropdown.
List of Listings has a long list of parameters in the form of dropdowns and textboxes. These will be documented more fully in the near future as needed.
When you need to customize the HTML output of any shortcode, you need to use Shortcode Templates. The HTML you enter in the HTML section is any valid HTML and will be used for each listing. You can use any of the subcodes on the right within the HTML. See the Shortcode Template guide for more details.
