  • Click on the  icon from the WordPress editor panel.
  • Edit type=”properties” or type=”articles”
  • Select the number of thumbs on row (1,2,3 or4)
  • Select the number of rows (there is no limit)
  • Add a link for the more listings or more articles buttons. Make sure the URL is written in TEXT format (not a link).

  • You can add a separate title for this shortcode and remove the Page Title.
  • To do that you must use Structure Shortcodes.
  • In this video we’re using Full Width Container – .
  • Type title.
  • Select border for the container. Options are: NONE (white), listingborder (green by default), blogborder (cherry by default), agentborder (blue by default), no border (if you don’t type anything).
  • Type the shortcode in the container.
  • Save changes and see the results on front end.
