Users browsing through listings will immediately see essential details like the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, garage availability, and pricing as well as in all header variations on the listing detail page.

6. Enable Property Type and Category Search Widgets:

  • Open the "Design" menu and select "Page Editor."
