List out classifieds

This web control displays a list of items in the classifieds which are live, and have not yet expired. When used on it's own it will display an unfiltered list of items in the classifieds module. However when used alongside the search control, the search facility gives the option to filter the lists to display the results related to the search.

  1. Right click on your classifieds folder and select New Content. The Create New Content window will appear.
  2. Click Web Page and then select your standard web page template, click Close.
  3. A new page will be created, give the page a title (eg. Classifieds-listing) and click Save.
  4. In the editable area of the page, right click to bring up the contextual menu. Select Insert Webcontrol and make any changes needed to the web control settings. Click Save, then Submit & Approve.
