Sold Listings

The "Sold Listings" feature enables the display of Listings that have been sold or are unavailable, with the label "Sold".

General Settings

By default sold listings are not displayed in the Inventory page and search results. To include Sold Listings on the Inventory page, go to the Dashboard > Theme Options > Inventory Settings in order to activate Sold Listings.

Enable the Sold Listings property, select the badge background color, and click the Save Settings button.

This option includes sold listings on the inventory and single listing page view respectively.

After enabling the Sold Listings feature, a Listing status filter appears on the Inventory page, which allows filtering active and sold listings.

How to mark listings sold

The Sold badge can be put on any of the listings.

When the Mark as sold feature is activated, all the other listing labels will be disabled, since the Sold Listing feature has the highest badge priority.

Mark listings as sold in the WordPress dashboard

Go to the Dashboard > Listings and select and tick the sold listing in the Mark as sold column.

The sold listings feature is available also in the listing creation/editing process and can be done in the Price section by ticking next to the Mark as sold.

Mark listings as sold by users and dealers

In Classified demo layouts, users can mark their published listings from their user account directly.

How to change the "Sold" label

The word Sold on the label can be changed to any desired one by simply installing the Loco Translate plugin. The Loco Translate is a free plugin and can be installed from the default repository of WordPress.

After installing and activating the plugin, go to Dashboard > Loco Translate > Themes and select the Motors theme.

Create a new language file by clicking New Language or edit an existing language file by clicking Edit.

Select a language from the list, specify the file location, and click the Start Translating button.


It is required to store the translation file in the “../wp-content/languages/themes/” folder to keep translation during the theme updates.

Find the required string in the searching field(1), enter the word that you want to change(2), and save your changes(3).

If you cannot see the changes in your site try to perform a hard reload of the web page using hotkey Ctrl+Shift+R for Windows and Command + Shift + R for Mac.
