With WordPress, other than using Tag and Category, you can use custom fields and custom taxonomies to create your custom posts filters. In this post, I will bring in a pretty simple method to do it by Meta Box plugin.
After the 3rd part of the series about how to build a hotel booking website using Meta Box, we had a basic system to create and book reservations for a small and medium hotel. However, I think that you still need a tool to collect all the booking details for easy management and scheduling.
That’s why in this 4th part, I will show you how to display all booking orders on one page so that you can view the booking schedule intuitively as well as easily check each information.
When using WordPress, you probably already know about managing a user list in the Admin panel. This is also one of the needs that many people are interested in. Especially, people seem to have a higher demand to display users only when they want to publish their accounts.
So today, I will show you how to display the user list on the frontend with Meta Box plugin and publish the user accounts only when they are allowed by the owners, besides, hide the accounts that users don’t want to publish.
Arranging posts in a custom order will be much easier if you use Meta Box plugin and the two extensions Meta Box Builder and MB Admin Columns. Compared to arranging posts by modifying the published date, which is time-consuming, Meta Box plugin and these extensions will do it more quickly in a blink of an eye for you.

If you are wondering about what an FAQs page is, we will explain it very shortly for you. F.A.Q stands for Frequently Ask Question, so an FAQs page is a page that helps people quickly and directly address the most common questions about your product. FAQs page is so integral because it not only solves the customer’s problem but also boosts the relationship between you and your users.
I’m back to bring you the next part of this series. In this part, we are adding a booking form to the Room’s page which shows all the room’s information. This form allows your customers to submit a booking from frontend easily.
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.
