    Hi,
    You can add a category in Listings/Categories and then assign the custom attributes to it (in Listings/Attributes section), like vehicle year, VIN, etc. so they will appear only for listings within this category.

    Hi. Thank you
    How would i get the data in, that is, make, models, years, etc. Is there no compatible auto listings plugin?

    There’re no pre-defined attributes for vehicles, you would have to add attribute choices manually, or import them with some plugin (like WP All Import, if you have a CSV list of models).

    If there are many options – like a list – how can it be imported in the right Attribute – pls guide

    ihordeveloper

    Attribute options are stored as terms so you can import them from CSV or other format using some import plugin, like this one https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-ultimate-csv-importer/ For example, if you name an attribute “Some Name”, then the taxonomy of attribute options will be “hp_some_name” (prefixed with “hp_”, in lowercase with underscores).

    Thanks Ihor – do all Categories need to have a picture – I noticed that if there is no picture – it does not even show the Category – so one cannot post into it.
    And if I wish to use this method of Import and Export WordPress Data as CSV or XML – then how to add pictures to the many Categories using this – i will check the plugin – but if you have an idea – pls share.
    Thank you very much

    Images are not required, category preview displays a placeholder image if there’s no image set. If you use some third-party plugin for importing categories you can try mapping image IDs (image ID is saved in the “hp_image” custom field for each category).
