The average rating is calculated automatically and is displayed under the title of the listed item.

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 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:

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.
