    Q1.
    As seen in the documentation the docs the [FIELDS] shortcode is used to output custom fields. Is there a way so that I can add a custom field for an Business Logo, to output in one of these [FIELDS] shortcodes found throughout relevant template files? It seems that the limitations only allow for text and not images.

    Q2.
    The Featured Image for a single “Listing” appears first in the slider for a specific page, is
    there a way to remove this image as the first image in the slider and instead let the slider
    use only additional images provided in this area of a “Edit Listing” ( see image )

    Hello David,
    Q1.There is no option to do this currently.Customization will be required.
    Q2.Do not set a featured image.Upload your images via the section from your above image,save.Access the Listing from frontend and click on the ‘Edit This Listing’ button >scroll to bottom to Listing Attachment section >Click on the star icon on the image you want used as main image/display image

    Thanks Super Guru Josh,

    Your speed is amazing, your solution to Q2 is almost perfect, by using your method the image I give a star icon to becomes the main/featured image. The use-case here is that we are displaying businesses
    and we desire a business’s logo as being their main/featured image to be displayed on the search results pages and on carousels and such BUT when a user visits a unique companies name ( an individual listing ) it seems the first slide in the image slider
    is the company logo ( featured image ) instead it would be preferable to show images other than that
    main/featured logo which for this project can be standard images. Do you think that can be done without
    too much digging through the template files?

    Hello David,
    Try the below code under Theme Setup >General Setup >Custom css

    .wlt_shortcode_images #slider-carousel .owl-item:first-child {
    display:none;
    }
    .owl-carousel .owl-item:first-child {
    display:none;
    }

    This will remove the first image in the slider (the main/featured image/the logo ) hence only show the other uploaded images
