How to Organize Properties with Category List Pages

 

How to create a Property Category

Method 1

Categories can help organize properties, e.g., Residential Active, Commercial Sold, Coming Soon, etc.  They can be created by logging into the Gutensite Control Panel, switch to the Content tab, then select Properties.  There is a link for Categories on the left.  Click on the Add New button.  

  1. Give the Category a unique name.
  2. The Friendly URL will automatically be populated with the Category Name, but can be changed if desired.
  3. If you want the Category to be visible in a menu, then select from the drop-down Menu Location.  
  4. The Nested Order is where the categories can be grouped, e.g., Residential vs Commercial.  
  5. The Order By options allow for how the properties will be listed.
  6. Display count limits the number of properties within a specific category that will be displayed.
  7. Create

 

Method 2

Alternatively, Categories can also be created when adding a new property.  Log into the Gutensite Control Panel, switch to the Content tab, then select Properties. Click on the Add New button on the right.  At the bottom of the List Page option is the Add More button.  

Clicking on Add More will prompt a pop-up window to be displayed that contains the options for creating a category.  (See Method 1 above for details.)  Be sure to click on the Create button to save the new category.

NOTE:  If you haven't previously created any Categories, the the List Page option will not be available.  Use Method 1 above to create Categories.  

 

 

 

How to add the Category to a specific property

The Categories are automatically populated to the List Page option for individual Personal Property listings.   They can be found by logging into the Gutensite Control Panel, switch to the Content tab, then select Properties. Click on the Add New button on the right.

 

The available Categories are listed on the left.  To activate, highlight the desired Category, then click on the + in between the two columns.  This will move the Category to the right-hand column.

 

Add all of the other desired information about this property, then Create.  

 

How to remove a Category from a property listing.

Log into the Gutensite Control Panel, switch to the Content tab, then select Properties.  Select the desired entry from the list, then Edit.

The List Page option contains all of the Categories.  The available ones are listed on the left, while the enabled ones are on the right.

To remove, select the desired Category from the list on the right, then click on the minus sign in between the two columns.  Once done, don't forget to Save the configuration.
