Listing Template in Elementor

Listing Template Overview

From this text, you will learn about the Listing Template settings and usage and what other JetEngine functionalities are compatible with it.

First Steps of Listing Creation

Proceed to WordPress Dashboard > JetEngine > Listings to edit the already-built listing by hovering over the item and pressing the “Edit with Elementor” button, or create a new listing by clicking the “Add New” button.

Before editing, the primary customizations should be made in the customization pop-up.

Repeater Field

For the “Repeater Field” source, an option should be picked in the From post type list. Then, the Repeater source field follows, where the next options are presented: “JetEngine,” “JetEngine Options Page,” and “ACF.”

The following line includes two fields: the Repeater field and the Repeater option. Choose one based on the earlier selected Repeater source. Complete the Repeater field for the “JetEngine” or “ACF” Repeater source, and fill in the Repeater option for the “JetEngine Options Page.”

Listing item name and listing view

After selecting the needed Listing source, there are two additional fields: Listing item name and Listing view

The Listing item name is a field for a listing name to distinguish it from other listings; it can be left empty so the name will be generated automatically.

The Listing view has four available options: “Elementor,” “Gutenberg (Blocks Editor),” “Bricks,” and “Timber/Twig.”

Further, the Elementor settings for Listing will be described, so the “Elementor” option should be picked.

Listing Item in Elementor

Initially, a listing is empty. The Elementor panel allows adding the desired widgets to the template.

Listing Item Settings

Except for the separate settings for each widget, the listing itself can be adjusted.

General settings

To reach the Listing Item Settings, one should press the “Settings” button in the Elementor panel.

Primarily, the General Settings tab opens where the default Title can be altered, and the Status of the Listing Item can be set. Among statuses are: “Draft,” “Pending Review,” “Private,” and “Published.”

Listing settings

Once the Listing Settings tab is opened, the Listing source can be changed to the ones mentioned earlier in the article.

Depending on the selected source, the following settings may vary.

Also, the Preview Width can be specified here either by dragging the range or completing the field manually with the needed value in pixels. The following Make listing item clickable switcher allows clicking on a listing to redirect to another page.

If the last mentioned feature is activated, more settings become visible.

Firstly, the Link source should be set by selecting the needed option from the drop-down list. The drop-down list is divided into several parts: the “General” one and those concerning categories, user fields, CPT, CCT, and REST API items. 

Here, the “General” section is covered as it is the one that shows further fields for customization.

For instance, the “Permalink” option can be set. It redirects to the single page of the item when its title is clicked.

 “Options” should be picked to redirect to the Options Page created beforehand.

The “Open Map Listing Popup” option is self-explanatory; it opens a pop-up with the Map Listing.


It becomes available if the Maps Listings feature is activated in the Modules tab of WordPress Dashboard > JetEngine > JetEngine. Also, remember that this option will not work on the pages that don’t have the Map Listing widget on them.

Once it is selected, the Zoom field appears. If it is not empty, the map will be centered on the corresponding marker and adjusted to the Zoom value.


If the marker is in a cluster, the map zoom level should be higher than specified in the Zoom field to reveal the cluster itself.

The “Open Map Listing Popup on Hover” option works the same as the previous option, but map listing is activated when the cursor hovers over the item.

The “Open JetPopup” activates the pop-up once pressed (works with the JetPopup plugin) or other custom values.

Then, the Open in new window toggle can be activated to open the selected link on the new page once the listing item is pressed.

In addition, the Add “rel” attr (relation of the link to the current listing) and Aria label attr (text value of the element for accessibility) fields are available.

The Link prefix field can be completed with an additional prefix that will be added to the link. For instance, “mailto” or “tel.”

Dynamic Widgets

JetEngine provides a Listing Elements tab with dynamic widgets included, which are made for pulling data from the source dynamically. 

Among them are:

Except for dynamic widgets, there is also a possibility to use the Dynamic Tags feature, which is available for different widgets. With tags, different data can be pulled out.

To access Dynamic Tags, one should click the corresponding button.

Besides these widgets, you can use any other available, but be aware that they will show static data. 

For example, suppose the Dynamic Image widget is used; it will show a picture put into the corresponding meta field, and those pictures will differ for every item (if different pictures are added). 

If you use the Image widget, all the items of the Listing Grid will show the same picture.

That’s it for the Listing Template in Elementor, available with the JetEngine plugin for your WordPress website.
