Widget Usage

eBay WordPress Plugins - Fast eBay Listings, RSS WidgetFast eBay Listings supplies a number of widgets to display eBay items, perfect for promoting items in your site margins and footer. These widgets can display an eBay RSS feed, your own search results or a dynamic search based on the current page or post.

All widgets can be customised to present items in a column, row or grid of any size, with pictures of any size and with the option of  a manual or automated slideshow.

Fixed Search Widget

This widget presents an eBay search similar to the ebay_search shortcode in a WordPress widget and will show the results from a fixed eBay search query.

The widget form contains fields matching the same as ebay_search, so you can filter in the same manner, choose to display in grid with as many columns or rows as you like and with the same slideshow options.

RSS Search Widget

Similar to above, this is a widget version of the ebay_rss shortcode, featuring the very same options.

Dynamic Search Widget

This widget presents an eBay search similar to the Fixed Search widget, however the search query is dynamically driven by the current page displayed. On pages and posts, the title is used as the search query. When browsing categories or tags, the category or tag is used as the eBay query. As a fallback, a default query can be specified for other pages.

Fast eBay Listings - Dynamic Widget

Use this widget to display eBay items related to page visitors are reading. You can of course further filter this by a given eBay categories, seller, price etc
