I have the “Front Page Exposure” as an optional listing enhancement addon. If someone purchases this, what do I need to do to ensure that the listing shows on the front page?
Is this automatic if someone chooses this? Or do I need to set up something special on my home page layout?
the idea of this is that a flag (custom field) is set which you can use yourself in your queries.
name: frontpage value: yes or no
Ok ,so I need to create a custom query using the theme’s shortcodes. Then put that query into a widget on the frontpage area?
Ok, I got it. For other wondering, here’s what I did…
First, make sure that your listing actually has been set as having the Front Page designation. If “Front Page” is included in your listing packages through a Listing Enhancement, this will be set automatically when the listing is created.
If you’re testing with a listing that doesn’t already have the Front Page designation, simply edit a listing and set this to “yes”.
Now go to Display Settings–>Home Page–>Layouts and Objects and choose one of those objects to include on the front page. In my case, I choose an additional “Recent Listings” object.
I then changed that to say “Featured Professionals” and then entered this query: meta_key=frontpage&meta_value=yes
Make sure to hit “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page, and presto…all listings with the “front page” listing enhancement are shown:)
In my case, I’m listing these in the grid format, and then the regular recent listings below that in a standard list.
Mark post like this you should move to FAQ. PS: For me dont work any of Forum Navigation right. I cant even find my listings etc 🙁
Thanks ill see what i can do.
