Populating the Listings Pages


Fetching home listings works a bit differently than the others. Here are the instructions:

  • From the left-hand menu, choose Listings Options → Homes.
  • Next, open a new tab and visit the Customer’s Business Website. Find where on the website the Listings are displayed.
  • Enter this page’s URL into the URL to page field.

Next we need to find the Selector:

  • Go back to the Customer’s Listings’ Page.
  • Right-click on the first property listing, and choose Inspect.
  • The Developer Tools panel opens, showing a list of all the elements on the web page displayed as rows.
  • One of these rows is highlighted in blue. Right-click this row, then choose Copy → CSS Selector.
  • Go back to the TownSite and right-click the Selector field, then click Paste.
  • Click Fetch Data. The process may take up to a minute.
  • Once the home listings appear below, click Save Changes.

Check Your Work

Now visit the TownSite’s Frontend and ensure that the Events, Deals, Businesses, Restaurants, and Homes modules are functioning correctly. Listings should be populating and should be located within or near the Community. If not, double-check to see that values have been entered correctly.
