  • To upload the background images (say for instance you may want to add game images to your casino portal), head to dashboard and settings, select the theme options and general settings
  • As a listing owner, you can also export and import your CSV under the dashboard. Once you download CSV document, you can check for the format, name of the column field and follow the same format in your CSV. Once the CSV is done, you can click on the “choose file” option to upload the CSV and consequently hit the import button.


Depending on your requirement, you can select the payment packages from among the three types available on this WordPress theme:


  • Free classified ad payment: This is free of cost and can be used for trial as the listing owner will not have to pay anything for creating the business advertisements.
  • One-time classified ad payment: The listing owner can choose this option to publish ads as a paid classified for a certain period. On expiring it goes to the draft mode and can be reactivated. This can be featured on homepage slider by paying an additional fee.
  • Recurring classified ad payment: On choosing this package, the ads will remain active if the listing owner pays for it. This allows for featuring ads on the category slider, and the owner will receive leads on the dashboard.


The final steps include customisation of the listings and lead capture form on the website, followed by adding of the widgets in the sidebar and building the custom menu to set your portal rolling.
