Getting Started

There are four different Control Panel widgets available to help you manage listings. These are as follows:

You can add these widgets manually (from the Listings category in the widget browser), or you can create a new tab using the Listings pre-defined layout.

The following figure demonstrates this layout. The tab is a two-column layout, with the Groups List and Listing Types widgets in the left column and a placeholder for viewing groups and listings in the right column.

For the purposes of this chapter, I'll assume you're working with a tab having the same layout as the pre-built Listings tab.
