DIRECTORY & LISTING WORDPRESS BLOCKS IN CITADELA LISTING PLUGIN
Listing Items List
Display items on any page. Choose the layout and size of the items, then set filters to show only items you want according to category and/or location.
You’ll need a Google API key to display Google maps on your website. Once added, you can show items of your choice on the map.
Listing Search Form
The function of the Listing Search Form block is to search listing items. It is possible to search by keyword, category and location. You can use geolocation to set the radius from your actual position. Precise search is available using the advanced filter icon directly in the search form. This block can be used on any page as a standalone block or part of the map.
Listing Categories List
Display categories on any page to help your web visitors better orientate on your website. You can choose which information to show/hide, filter the categories or turn on a carousel of selected categories.
Listing Locations List
Similar to Categories List and Items List, WordPress block Listing Locations list is also packed up with settings and options to display only information you want or filter locations.
Listing Search Results
Displays search results on Special Page with the identical name: “Listing Search Results.” Settings let you choose between the box or list layout, set the ordering, pick displayed details and much more.
OpenStreetMap with GPX tracks
A great alternative to Google Maps is OpenStreetMap which you can configure within the Listing Map block. Filter displayed items by category or location and choose the predefined colour scheme. There’s also an option to upload and display GPX tracks to display paths & trails.
Blog Posts on Map
If a blog post you’ve written is connected to a particular location, you can add GPS/address to it and then display it on the map using Listing Map (for posts) block. How great is that?
Posts Search Results
Similar to Listing Search Results, Post Search Results is used on Special Page to display posts found by “Posts Search Form” using category, location or keyword.
One of the critical parts of a good listing site is certainly honest reviews posted by your customers. This feature lets you add a star rating and a comment to any item you allow reviews on. You can enable reviews in the Citadela Listing plugin under the tab “Item Reviews.” You can even set the colour of the stars in star ratings. The average rating is calculated automatically and is displayed under the title of the listed item.
Use this block on the Item Detail Page (one of the Special Pages) and let your web visitors get directions (navigate) from their location to the item location.
In the beginning, you’ll be creating an essential list of businesses on your website to get the ball rolling. Once your site gets more popular, business owners will want to claim the listing as their own and manage it in their administration. That’s what Claim Listing is for. You can enable it in the Citadela Listing plugin under the “Claim Listing” tab.
Extend your items with more information. You can predefine custom fields of several available types. You can divide your data between several Item extension Blocks and place them in different places on the Item detail page with different layouts.
Filters for more precise search. Block uses item extension inputs as data. Highly customizable with grouping and toggling abilities. Available on Search results, Category and Location pages.
If the listing item belongs to multiple categories, you can choose one featured category. You will use the icon and name of the featured category on the map, search results and items list.
Gutenberg editor on Listing item
You can use any Gutenberg block you like INSIDE the listing item. Here’s just a small example of what you can do inside a listing item:
- create a gallery
- add a price table
- insert multiple maps
- use any 3rd party block
You can still use a listing item special page, but now you have an option to overwrite these settings. This way, you can create different looking item detail pages for each item.
We love this feature as now you can work with items like WordPress pages or posts.
Listing Similar Items block will display listing items similar to the reference item, based on predefined criteria. You can use this block on Item Detail Page, which you can manage under the Citadela Special Pages section or on any post and page.
Next, you can select the order by option, e.g. Date, Title, Order number, Random or Distance.
Block displays image gallery of the Listing Item. Images can be uploaded while editing the item into Item Options section: Images gallery. Gallery block has various layout and design settings. For example image size, color configuration, carousel options etc. Block is available only on Item Detail Special Page or inside Item with Gutenberg editor turned on.
Events for listing items
Citadela products offer more complex compatibility and connection with The Events Calendar plugin that manages the events. The Citadela solution extends this plugin in design and linking elements. Each Event can be linked to an Item.
The Event Detail page is generated automatically. There is a link to the connected Item In the header if the Citadela theme is used. If not, it is only displayed in the detailed information of the event. To display the event on the Item page, it is necessary to edit the Item Detail Page in the Citadela Special Pages section. The Item Events block displays lists of all related events.
Events plugin adds Event categories and All Events pages. You can add navigation links into menus, as usually in the Appearance ￫ Menus section.
Listing Membership Content
We’re introducing you to yet another way to monetize your website content or even start a new business. Citadela Listing plugin includes a native WordPress Paywall support. It allows you to hide a specific piece of your page, post or directory item to non-subscribers.
This WordPress Paywall feature integrates nicely with Citadela Subscriptions feature that is already included in the plugin. You can sell your subscription right out of the box, connect it to WooCommerce payment gateways, and you’re done.
Automatically generated Special Pages
For your convenience, all these Special Pages are generated automatically by the Citadela WordPress Listing plugin. You will find them in your wp-admin under “Citadela Special Pages,” on your left-hand side. Feel free to look through them and redesign them the way you like. You can add new blocks, reorder existing ones – just like on other pages.
Create and promote subscription packages on your website to earn money. Thanks to Citadela Listing subscriptions, your web visitors – business owners – can subscribe to your website or purchase a listing plan and manage their listings. You can decide if you want to collect a one-time fee or create a listing plan with recurrent payments linked to a renewal period of days, weeks or months. Expenses & purchases are managed with WooCommerce.
Wait, there’s more…
Item owners can manage their listings via a simplified WordPress administration interface. Their WordPress user role will be “Subscriber”, and they’ll have their Item Posts to look after. You can define their permissions and adjust their admin section. Choose a colour scheme, background image and much more.
