Pricing Plan Settings

In this setting, you can allow your clients to delete the listings and create a new listing instead of the deleted listing of the slot.

The Revert Listings Slot option is available only after the Delete Listings option is enabled.

Delete Listings allows users to delete a listing or several listings from their pricing slot. As an example, the user bought a plan with a certain number of listings. The administrator should enable this option in order to user could remove listings.

Revert Listing Slot allows keeping the total number of the listing slot after listing(s) deletion. If the user deletes the listing and wants to replace the deleted listing with a new listing, the administrator should enable this option to preserve the user's slot. As a result, the total number of listings will be changed including the deleted listings.

Enable options, save changes and create user listings in order to see listing functionality changes.

Four functions of the listing are available from the user's side.

  • Unpublish - Unpublishing the published listing.

  • Edit - Editing the listing.

  • Delete - Deleting the current listing.

  • Promote - Promoting the listing to make it a featured plan.

It is recommended to review the New Plan Creation section of this manual to get detailed information about Pricing Plans.

Shortcode

Some elements from the uListing plugin can be used with other themes by simply pasting selected shortcodes on the page.

The Categories shortcode creation process is shown as an example. The shortcode divided into two parts: ulisting-category and listing_type_id.

Category name, the first part of the shortcode, can be taken from the Dashboard > Listings > Categories. In our case, the Sale category is taken. After applying the slug, the shortcode will be as shown below and displays only the Sale category listings:

[ulisting-category category ="sale"]

The shortcode of the specific listing type should be taken in order to display the Listing Type with the Sale Listing Category.

In this case, the shortcode of the Buildings Listing Type taken as an example. Afterward, the Listing Categories shortcode should be combined with the Listing Type shortcode:

[ulisting-category category ="sale" listing_type_id="10"]

Paste the created shortcode to any page builder to display the result.

As a result, three houses from the Sale Listing Category and Buildings Listing Type appear on the page.
