How do I access the listing catalog XML file?

The plugin adds a new feed url at yourdomain.com/feed/fb-catalog/

How do I have create a listing catalog with more than the default 10 listings?

The feed template supports a query parameter of ?numposts=X – where X is the number of listing posts to display.
Example: https://yourdomain.com/feed/fb-catalog?numposts=25

How do I have create a listing catalog for just one location?

The feed template supports a query parameter of ?location=X – where X is the slug of your location taxonomy term.
Example: https://yourdomain.com/feed/fb-catalog?location=my-neighborhood

My listings already have a Status and Property Type set with a taxonomy, why do I have to select one from the metabox?

This is because the fields required by Facebook only accept specific values and cannot reliably be matched to a user-defined value.

Why are my listings not displaying in the catalog feed

This is most likely due to your listings missing one of the required fields. For a list of the required fields, view the dynamic ad catalog documentation.

Will this plugin support other real estate listing plugins?

Not likely unless there is an overwhelming interest to do so.
