  • Look at the WordPress Settings – click the Gear icon – in the upper right.
  • Click Document (not Block) just below the Gear icon.

    • Choose Saved Link: May show a Saved Link, but will not be used when Featured is selected above.
    • Limit by Agent: All or choose one
    • Show Image: Checked
    • Use rows: Checked
    • Listings per row: 3 (You can also choose 2, if that's all you have for Active Listings)
    • Max number of listings to show: a multiple of the Listings per row.
    • Sort Order: Default (or your choice)
    • Default Styles: Checked

Click the Update button on the right when finished.
