Custom listings (portfolio, directory, classifieds, store finder) w/ options like (google maps, gallery, front end upload, & ajax search / filter)
BePro Listings allows you to, search, filter and showcase information in various ways including google maps and multiple listing templates. Configure results to highlight various media types including, images, documents, audio, and videos. Choose between our easy one page/shortcode setup with ajax features or configurable distributed architechture.
Thats it, everything works on one page (google maps, listings, categories, search, etc). When you are ready for custom configurations, we have a plethora of extra shortcodes and options. If you prefer an alternative to the DIY method, check out our $1 one dollar wordpress themes and available support on our website.
Remember, unlike other solutions, just about everything in BePro Listings can be set to an off state i.e. removed. So, if your solution does not need Google Maps, ajax, or cost related info, then simply turn off the options in the admin. Then use the shortcodes that do focus on your needs.
BePro Listings can be applied to any listings scenario. It's designed to be modular and flexible, facilitating custom combinations, as you integrate it into your current theme. Configure options like, # of uploads, ajax search filter, default search distance, and item page details.
