Category and Listing Thumbnails for Directory Plugin

Hi - I want a list of categories to have a featured image displayed next to the category. Also, when I click on the category, I want thumbnails to show up next to each listing (featured photo for each listing preferably).

I ideally would not like to hard code anything. Can you suggest what to do?

Thanks!

    Hi @launchingfrog

    Greetings from the WPMU DEV Support Team and thank you for being a member of our community.

    I had a good look at what you would like to achieve and at what the Directory Plugin currently offers. So let me tackle your requests one by one :slight_smile:

    I want a list of categories to have a featured image displayed next to the category.

    You can use the 'List of Categories' shortcode [dr_list_categories] which will display a list of categories. However, here I want to mention that the end result will also depend on what styling your theme currently uses. And you can add attributes to the shortcode that is provided. Also, if you also don't want to do hard coding I was wondering if you would consider setting up your own shortcode as hard coding? I was just brainstorming and trying to think a bit out of the box here. Here are a few links that might be useful if you choose to consider creating your own shortcode:

    when I click on the category, I want thumbnails to show up next to each listing (featured photo for each listing preferably).

    When adding a new listing, please select the Featured Image option and add your image of choice. This would automatically display a thumbnail image next to each listing on the Listing Page.

    Please see my screenshots as support to my post.

    I wish you all the best with setting up your site and let me know if you need any further support.

    Have a good weekend.
