Displaying Featured Listings Randomly

Step 1: Creating a new widget area “Featured Listings” for single listing page using genesis_register_sidebar function. This new widget area will come at Appearance -> Widgets page. Add the following code in your functions.php file:

genesis_register_sidebar( array(
	'id'          => 'featured-listings',
	'name'        => __( 'Featured Listings', 'agentpress' ),
	'description' => __( 'This is the featured listings section which will show at the listing details page.', 'agentpress' ),
) );

Step 2: Placing this new widget area at top of listing content area. Put the following code in your functions.php file:

add_action( 'genesis_before_entry', 'featured_listings', 25 );
function featured_listings() {
  if( is_singular('listing') && is_active_sidebar( 'featured-listings' ) ) {
    genesis_widget_area( 'featured-listings', array(
		'before' => '<div class="featured-listings full-width widget-area" id="featured-listings"><div class="wrap">',
		'after'  => '</div></div>',
    ) );
  }
}

is_singular('listing') conditional tag is displaying the widget area for “listing” type only. genesis_widget_area is rendering the widget area. if you want to show the listings at bottom of the content then replace genesis_before_entry hook with genesis_after_entry hook.

Step 3: Now navigate to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Widgets and drag&drop the Agentpress -Extended Featured Listings Widget at Featured Listings Widget area. Next setup the settings as per screenshot. Agentpress -Extended Featured Listings Widget will be available on your site, if you purchase the Extended AgentPress Listings Widget (EAPLW) plugin.
