1. Product Listing

The concept of lists is that you create a product-list in the Shopello settings
part of WordPress Admin, then you have to create a post or page and add the
shortcode [shopello_products] and choose which listing to display in this post
or page.

2. Filters

To display filters for a listing you (may) choose which filters to display when
creating the listing.

Then you can use the shortcode [shopello_filters] to include the filters or just
add the Widget to the layout.
