Extensify is a plugin that allows you to show your website visitors the listings they have viewed while browsing your site. This feature can be used to increase views by reminding visitors of listings they have shown interest in and encouraging them to contact listing owners.
To get started with Extensify, you will first need to install the plugin on your website. This can usually be done by visiting the plugin link in our Astoundify addon repository and purchasing it from there.

- Head over to your WordPress admin > Plugins > Add new > Upload Plugin
- Once uploaded click on the “Install” button to install the plugin.
- Once the plugin is installed, click on the “Activate” button to activate it.
Once the plugin is set up and activated, it will automatically begin tracking the listings that your visitors view on your website. This information can be used to display a “recently viewed” section on your single listing card, which will show your visitors the listings they have viewed and allow them to quickly navigate back to them.

The Extensify plugin is now active on your website, as we visit any item listing, we can see the “Recently Viewed” badge which displays on the listing card of every listing that the visitor has recently viewed.
Recently Viewed Widget
In addition to the “recently viewed” section, Extensify also allows you to display personalized listing recommendations to your visitors based on their browsing history. This can help increase contact by showing visitors listings that they are more likely to be interested in and encouraging them to make the listing owner.
- To add the “Recently Viewed” widget on a single listing page:
- Head over to the WordPress admin panel, and go to Appearance > Widgets.
- Click on the “Extensify – Recently Viewed” widget and add it to the “Single Listing – Main Content” section.
- You can customize the settings such as the number of listings to show and whether to display the slider autoplay, arrow, or dots.
- The widget will now be displayed as a slider on the single listing page, and it can be placed anywhere you want on your website as it is a WordPress widget.
Adding the Recently viewed widget with Elementor.
- To add the “Recently Viewed” widget using Elementor page builder:
- Open the page where you want to add the widget in Elementor.
