In the first post of this series, we created the page showing all the hotel room’s information. It normally has a button or several call-to-action areas to go to the booking page which allows your customers to make an order. However, ‘cause some businesses have strong direct channels, they want their sales to make booking orders for their customers as well. Along with that, to have you imagine how to create a booking page in the frontend later (which is in the 3rd post), I made this post to show you how to create one in the backend. That is for internal users only.
In this series, we would like to introduce a way to build a Hotel Booking website using Meta Box. Usually, a Hotel Booking page has 4 common pages as below:
- Room’s page where you show all the room information in the frontend;
- Booking page in backend for your internal using;
- Booking page in frontend for your customer’s using;
- Booking management page in the backend.
We are going to create all the above pages in this series with 4 posts. Regarding the customer accounts to make a booking, we have a post for your quick reference: How to Add Guest Author in WordPress using Meta Box.
Favicon refers to Favorite Icon, which is a small icon displayed in the tab’s name on the browser. Users can distinguish each tab by this icon. It often has the size is 16x16px and is saved in a file named
favicon.io in the root folder of the server. It also is considered as an abridged logo of your business.
Every website often has a favicon applied to all pages on the site. But, you may want to highlight your products by set individual favicon for each product page. Using Meta Box plugin along with editing the theme a little bit will help you get it.
In the previous post, we have created features that allow users to sign up a Guest Author account then submit a post from the frontend. If we stop here, the submitted post will be published right after the Guest Author press the Submit button.
Guest Author is a kind of guest account in which the visitors can register and use it to submit a post without any admin permission. This helps you have more content for your site, so it absolutely benefits you. From an order of my client, I saw that adding this is pretty interesting then want to share with you how to do it. Of course, using Meta Box.
Classifying posts by Category or Tag is sometimes not enough for you. You may need to use another way to create a series of posts. It will help readers to follow the series more easily. In this article, I will show you how to create a post series in a new way using the Meta Box plugin.
Among the various types of online advertising, classified advertisement is probably the earliest-developed type that still exists. Over the years, the classified websites have improved its interface and features, but they are still based on the basic features which are:
- Allows users (sellers) to register an account, post a product or service with detail information;
- Allows the audience (buyers) to search and view the products.
One of the most reputed websites in classified advertising is Ebay.com. I’m going to show you how to create a classified ads website in WordPress using Meta Box which follows Ebay’s model.
News or e-commerce websites, which have multiple blog posts or products, usually need Related Posts. Adding related posts to your posts brings some advantages of SEO and user experience. However, using plugins which create related posts automatically may not satisfy when you want to choose some particular related posts. In this tutorial, we’ll use Meta Box to create related posts that you can choose manually.
The product page is considered as the most essential page on a website, especially an e-commerce website. That is where your customers spend the most time and attention. It has the main impact on your customer’s buying decisions as well. That’s why creating a great product page always is the most principal thing in the website development progress.
