Listing Label

The Listing Label Plugin gives your site users more ways to manage their listings and allows them to assign a particular status to each of them. Default settings allow users to add Visible, Invisible or Sold status to a listing, although if you wish to add more labels, you can do so by configuring the Plugin right from back end.

How it works

In the front end, the Plugin adds a drop down menu to the listings page where a dealer may see a list containing all of his ads. Hovering a mouse over a listing status menu will bring up a visual aid reading listing status, clicking it would reveal a dropdown menu with available labels to choose from.

Why users need it

Dealers tend to make changes to their ads and add new information to listings from time to time. Having a lot of listings added, dealers may not have enough time to edit them. In this case, the listings may contain inaccurate information and will be misleading to users. With the Plugin installed, the dealer may go over the listings and make some of them invisible for a time when changes are added. More so, the dealer may change the status of active listings to sold and a Sold label will be added to a listing’s preview thumbnail. This will serve two purposes: first, all of the sold listings will be added to a box named sold listings showing others that they are closed and there’s no need to contact the owner. Secondly, the box with the sold listings will demonstrate seller’s and buyer’s activity on your site. Finally, dealers may use the Listing Label Plugin to group listings based on certain criteria, for instance, mark some ads as clearance sale or urgent.

Back End

Once the Plugin is installed and activated, a special manager is added to the admin panel. With the default settings, the Plugin offers three labels: Visible, Invisible and Sold. Let us go over the main settings and see how you can further customize the Plugin and tailor it to your preferences.

You start by creating a listing status and assigning a name to it. It can be sold, clearance, invisible or any other status that you consider appropriate for your site. Then you choose a label image to visually represent a label. After that you can select the listing type(s) for which the status will be active. Obviously the Sold status may be used for cars or properties whereas it will be inappropriate for services or a job desk.

There is also an option to feature listings of a particular status in a separate content box. If you want the content box to appear on your site, you need to check this option in back end, come up with a name for a content box, for instance Sold Listings, and finally choose where the box will be featured – on top, bottom, left or right on your site. Finally, you may check the pages on which the box will be displayed if you wish for it to be shown only on particular pages or check sticky if you want the box to be shown on all pages. You can apply the same setting to categories.

Last but not least, you can enable a setting, which will make the content box match the site design. If you choose to ignore this setting, the content box will be shown as text on the site background.

The Listing Label is a helpful Plugin offering a multitude of flexible settings. By choosing this Plugin, you will streamline users’ navigation across hundreds of listings by allowing them to see the activity on each of them.

  • Very useful plugin!

    I'm using it on my Flynax website ( and it works very well.

    I also like that after a certain time period the listings change status again (so they don't keep showing in the 'sold' section for ever).
