How do I add a page with a directory listing of ALL listings?
1 page with 1000000 listings?
We have a site with about 300 business’ – they would like to have a “directory” page with them all listed, much like a category page.
you can modify this file if you want
at the moment it will list all the listings in expiry order
or you can create your own and order it differently
If you are after something like this: – this displays all the listings in alphabetical order with ‘quick links’ that jump to the first letter.
This is done simply by using the Post Index plugin:
Wide range of PremiumPress and WordPress Plugins and add-ons
PremiumPress customisation services and Website Design
Selection of PremiumPress Child Themes
That’s great! Thanks!
I just want a list of all the business’ in the directory, with the featured businesses at the top. Just like the category pages, but listing all of the business. Please help!
I HAPPEN TO HAVE A SOLUTION WHICH IS SO STUPID SIMPLE THAT I AM WONDERING IF THIS IT WILL HELP YOU AT ALL… BUT HERE GOES, SINCE I HAVE SEEN MORE THAN ONE INQUIRY ON THIS AND I NEEDED IT MYSELF.
IF YOU WANT A PAGE ON YOUR SITE TO SIMPLY SHOW ALL LISTINGS, SIMPLY CONFIGURE IT IN THE WORDPRESS MENU CONFIGURATION PANEL IN THE BACKEND, RATHER THAN DEFINING IT VIA THE GENERAL SETTINGS OF PREMIUMPRESS.
ONCE YOU HAVE SET THE PAGES YOU WANT TO DISPLAY IN YOUR MENU, SIMPLY ADD IN THE MENU THE DEFAULT CATEGORY, OR ANY CATEGORY FOR THAT METTER AND MAKE SURE YOU SET IT TO DEFAULT IN THE WORDPRESS SETTINGS.
RENAME THE CATEGORY TO WHATEVER YOU WANT, AND THA’T IT. WORDPRESS POSTS BY DEFAULT ARE DEFINED TO DISPLAY AND BE LINKED TO THE DEFUALT CATEGORY, UNLESS YOU CHANGE IT.
NOW ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS MAKE SURE YOUR ALREADY ACTIVE LISTINGS ARE MARKED FOR THIS CATEGORY.
HOPE THIS HELPS.
@Itiel, your method will not show ‘All’ listings from the whole site, but if you look at my previous post, there is even simpler solution.
Hey, Richard, thanks for that plugin tip.
Even if it doesn’t help Kirk, it’s certainly one I can use down the track. Have downloaded the plugin for future use. 😀
Hi Richard ,
Iam unable to configure the post index settings. Can you guide me to any tutorial.
You should leave everything blank. See the screenshot below.
Thanks for that, Richard but it doesn’t work.
I used [post-index] on a page but nothing
What theme are you using? The shortcode to use is [post_index]. This works with v7 PremiumPress themes.
If you want to use it on the Responsive Themes use this shortcode instead:
