Here you can choose weather to use css or not. WP Lising has a default main CSS and widget CSS of which you can deactivate simply by checking one or both of these boxes.

Default State

You can enter a default state that will automatically be output on template pages and widgets that show the state. When you are create a listing and leave the state field empty, the default entered below will be shown. You can override the default on each listing by entering a value into the state field.

Default Number of Posts

As mentioned earlier WordPress creates archive pages. On a archive page it will show all posts. Under this section you can choose how many posts you would like to include in the archive.

When Finished select save.

Additional Information:

Wordpress by default creates archive pages. A archive page is a page showing all the tags and labels you assigned to that particular archive. For example Locations are a particular tag you can use as data for your property. So if you have properties located in San Diego. As long as all San Diego properties are tags as San Diego properties, there will be a archive page for listing in San Diego.

To add new options for listing, we call this Registering Taxonomies. This is essentially telling Wordpress to create new archive pages for what ever Taxonomies needed. For Example if you had a building, lets call this building A. In building A you have several properties, you can create a taxonomy for buildings then organize by which building they are. For example you would have the taxonomy buildings, and then organize them by building 1, building 2, building 3, etc. And whichever property is listing under building 1 will have its own archive page.

Hopefully this helps. Here's a link to get a betting understanding if this is not clear
