Images For Listings
All image placement uses the WP native Media Library. One nice advantage of Media Library is that you can insert an image ANYPLACE within your post/listing and can make galleries. Suggestion would be to put your images at the bottom of the content.
Default Locations
Listings Categories can be anything… business, music, food. OnList only provides the states as a time saver.

Before Content
Copy or write HTML into the textarea that will either match your theme or that you want to use to display before the listing. Before and After Content are only effective on the Single Template (single listings).
After Content
Both before and after textareas can be as simple as a clearfix element or you might use a section of your current theme to offset or create areas around the OnList section.
Comments on Public View
By default, ALL responses will show on public views*. Check OnList Options, Check to Allow Individual Authors to Choose Response View, to allow the authors to choose whether or not they want to receive comments for their listing. *If Show Comments Form is activated.
