FAQs about the product:

How do I let other people add a listing?

 This plugin uses normal WordPress login and user functions. So just use it like you would a blog. Have People register and then they will have their own listing admin area without the administrative rights. (They can not change the plugin settings.)

Where are the controls for this plugin?

  You will find the setup under the menu page -> “OnList Settings

Can I change the listing style?

If you know CSS then you can use any CSS editor to add a selector in your Customizer or and other stylesheets. Using the Inspector on your browser it is easy to look up the selector name. Most all of OnList selectors start with onlist-.

How do I get an API key to use the maps?

To get an API Key, visit https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/get-api-key.

I just loaded a new theme and can not see the listings?

Go to Settings > Permalinks and hit “Save Changes.” This refreshes your posts to recognize the OnList post. Check to see if you might have changed the permalink settings. Try to keep settings as “Post name” permalink.
