The 1st demo in http://dev.quantumcloud.com/sld/ is the simplest and basically default SLD configuration. It uses the default “simple” template. We just created a few lists and used the following shortcode to display them all:
[qcopd-directory mode="all" style="simple" column="3" search="true" category="" upvote="on" item_count="on" orderby="date" order="ASC" item_orderby="random"]
But if you are going to make a lot of lists on different topics, a better approach would be to create a few broad categories first and assign each list to a particular category. Then you can output specific lists to certain pages based on topic/category. Use the shortcode generator from visual editor to easily create shortcode in any page.
