Categories not showing on "Classifieds" page

Hi There

I am trying to set up an equestrian themed website with classifieds. I think I have my head around the plugin except I cannot get the categories to display on the classifieds page.

Also what options are there for "Search" functionality?

Thanks a million in advance guys :wink:

    Hey Keiran,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    To display a list or grid of categories on the classifieds page you will want to embed this into the classifieds template:

    <?php echo do_shortcode('[cf_list_categories style="grid | list"]'); ?>

    Make sure you decide whether you want list or grid then remove the other option :slight_smile:

    The template you will want to edit is page-classifieds.php and located:


    Once you make the edit then you should be able to just place it in the root folder of your child theme too so it's safe from future updates :slight_smile:

    Also what options are there for "Search" functionality?

    This is the best custom post type search option I've found:

    You can create your own search function and have it include only classifieds and search any fields you like :slight_smile:

    If you need any further assistance with this just let me know.

    Hey Keiran,

    Sorry for the delay. Do you mind sending in your FTP and granting support access? Then I can look into adding this for you :slight_smile:

    You can send that privately through our contact form:

    Select "I have a different question" for your topic - this and the subject line ensure that it gets assigned to me.

    Send in:

    Subject: "Attn: Tyler Postle"
    -WordPress admin username
    -WordPress admin password
    -login url
    -FTP credentials (host/username/password)
    -link back to this thread for reference
    -any other relevant urls

    **If you grant support access active then no need to send in wp-admin
