WordPress allows you to add more users to your website, but it’s from the backend only. If you want to allow visitors to register and manage their accounts from the frontend, you might create a custom sign up, sign in, and user profile page for them. You also might create some fields for them to fill in their information. If you are using Meta Box plugin, you may use it to do it easily.
Google Fonts is always a bottle neck for website performance. The Google Fonts’ CSS is a render blocking resource, which means that the browser won’t render any processed content until the CSS is loaded. It also causes a blank space when the font is being loaded.
Custom fields normally have a default padding, color, border, font, etc. which may not fit your design in either backend or frontend. So you may want to change how they display, making them more eye-catching. That’s the moment you want to style them.
So do the custom fields created by Meta Box. You definitely can style every custom field created by Meta Box as you want. In this post, I will give you some way to use CSS to style the fields.
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.
