    No futuro, se tiver como ter um shortcode para inserimos em qualquer página, vai ficar ótimo!!!

    Hello wpclubz,
    Very cool plugin !

    How can I filter only on Featured listings (not only order by them, but display only them) ?
    And I need to display them randomly.

    Do you see a little custom I could do ?
    Would you plan that in your backlog ?

    Thank you,

    • author

      Hi Laurent,
      Thank you for purchasing my plugin 🙂
      The order by featured is actually displaying featured ads.but I agree with you, we must have it as another field so the featured + random can work together.
      I am going to create a ticket to implement it in our next update which you’ll get it instantly on your websites.
      Best regards

    Hello wpclubz,

    Thank you for your reply !
    Would you have a release date of this next version ?
    [New field for Featured] + [Use of shortcodes among the new changes] would be great !


    • author

      We have already started working on the shortcodes.
      I have no ETA for that, and for example, I am working personanly on the featured one, I almost finished it, then I will give help to my coworker on the shortcodes one.
      I will let you know when I get something in hand.

  • entreparisiens

    sorry :
    [New field for Featured] + [Use of shortcodes] among the new changes would be great !

  • entreparisiens

    And my last suggestion 🙂
    Allow to not include the images in the widget by compressing them in width. Currently they are “squared”, and that look a bit weird on some width screen (compressed or extended).
    Maybe could you manage it by simply zoom on the image like in the original Vantage listing feed (I think it does not matter if we cannot see the whole image).
    I hope my description is clear enough !

  • entreparisiens

    I to take this opportunity to let you another idea :
    => Let the Admin custom the background color of the plugin thanks to a #hexa code color. (I know that other plugins are made for that but having it inside your plugin would be great).
    Thank you

  • entreparisiens

    I just mention an important bug…
    When activated, it breaks the “Vantage – Single Listing Author” Widget.
    As a result, the displayed data in the widget are not those from the Listing’s author, but those from the Admin of the site.

    When could you fix that please ?

  • entreparisiens

    No, I mean inside a Listing

  • entreparisiens

    Inside a Listing, the widget I mention get broken (the profile is not the good one)

    • author

      can you please share the url?
      because our plugin works only on the home page for now, and only if you activate the widgets.

  • entreparisiens

    Do you have a Pro email where I can send you the example please ?

  • entreparisiens

    Thank you. I just sent you a mail.

  • richfinch

    Hi, I notice this hasn’t been updated for a while. Is there going to be an update for this plugin soon?

  • author

    Hi Richfinch
    Thank you for your comment.
    Although the plugin is very stable with the latest version of cp and wp, but we plan to release a new update on July.
    We are still collecting a list of new features to add to the plugin.

  • wzoj

    What was updated was for classipress. We are talking about Vantage

    • author

      Sorry Wzoj for the misunderstand.
      Both plugins are based on the same module,in few minutes, I am going to push the one for vantage as well.

    • author

      it should be done now, please confirm.
      Note that the shortcode generator icon still not displaying on guttenberg , so you can disable guttenberg => generate the shortcode => enable guttenber again.
      We will take few hours to make it compatible with guttenberg blocks

      Best regards

    Hey there!

    I just purchased this plugin, noting that there’s a ‘Number of columns’ configuration option, but now that I’ve downloaded and installed it, I see now that…

    1) The option is only available in List View for some reason
    2) One only has the ability to chose 1-4, which means I can’t do 5 columns like I need without quite a bit of customization to the CSS.

    Is there any possibility that you could make this option available for Grid View, as well as allowing for at least 5 columns (maybe 6, depending on how small that makes the thumbnail)?

    Other than that, it seems to be working great so far 🙂

    • author

      Hi Carpediemtim
      Thank you for purchasing our plugin.
      1- I have checked out and I think it needs to be optimized, the grid view must have the number of columns as well
      2- As a matter of design,displaying 5 columns will be so cozy and might hide few ad elements. but I can add it to 6 🙂
      I am glad it works for you , and in case you have any idea for it, you can always submit it to our ideas channel

      Best regards

        Thank you kindly 🙂 Will these updates to the code be released any time soon?

        • author

          Yes, these updates are going to be in the next release. we are already working on it, in couple of days we will launch it.
          Yes the css is super simple and since it brings the format and the design from classipress grid blocks so it can be achieved by editing couple of css codes. and ofcourse it will look squished , but still you can reduce the padding of the grids and the margins if necessary.

          • carpediemtim

            Thank you kindly, I’ll keep an eye out for it. In the meantime, I’ve been dabbling with the CSS myself, and I found that if I tweak the height of the pictures, it seems to work well.

            On a side note, I’d like display only the City and State in the address line, though I wasn’t able to find the code that generates this. So as a temporary workaround, I set a max height to the address line that’s one line tall, and then if they hover over it, it expands. But if I could edit the function ‘the_listing_address’, I think that’d do the trick. I’m just not sure where that is exactly since I can’t find it in the plugin files, and I’m not seeing it in the theme’s functions.php file either.

            Any advice?

      • carpediemtim

        It seems the CSS for this is super simple, though the images will need to be resized since they look all squished when it’s 5 or 6 per row.

  • carpediemtim

    Where might I find the code for the tooltips that appear when you hover over these ‘ads’? Specifically, I don’t want it to say “gorgeous” when hovering over a rating, but I’m having trouble locating that text in the code, partly because I’m not sure if it’s coming from the theme, Critic, or your plugin.

    • carpediemtim

      Never mind; found it!


      (Thanks, grep.)

  • carpediemtim

    Me again 🙂 It seems this plugin overwrites the stars that Critic displays, and in the process, it’s partially breaking my ratings form. That is, it makes it impossible to click full-star reviews and only allows for half-star reviews (since you it seems the clickable area is outside the image, so the rating isn’t saved when you click it).

    Seems odd that this plugin would overwrite ALL stars on the site, not just the ones displayed in the widget associated with this plugin, though I’m not a fan of the look of Critic’s default stars.

    Please advise.

    • author

      it’s maybe something related to css ,let me install the plugin and test them together.
      We are refining our plugin ,we will release it in few days.
      I will keep you posted about the conflict with the critic plugin

      Hi carpediemtim,
      Sorry for the delay to reply to you.
      I have debugged it and it seems that we did it in purpose, we overwrote the font icon of critic stars with image ones.
      if you want I can revert back to critic one in 5 secs.
      I have updated the plugin now , I have tested it and it worked for me (Selecting half/full star, I have added few margin to allow users to freely select half or full )
      let me know how I can help you better, as I said i can restore it to critic in 5 secs.

  • carpediemtim
