    advlisting Attribute default value possible values
    id 0 Any integer representing the id of an existing listing

    {advlisting id=102 layout=pagetable description=1}

    Also note that attributes can be specified with single quotes, double quotes, or no quotes (if the value contains no spaces or are integers).
