In the prior posts of this series, we’ve known how to create a Recipe page using some of the page builders. In today's practice, we’ll use another one named Brizy to do it with the help of Meta Box.

This is an example:

Before Getting Started

Each recipe is saved in a post of a custom post type and displayed in a single page. Besides some default fields that may help to save some basic information. You may want to have more space for the extra ones. So, we need custom fields for them.

To get started, we need the Meta Box core plugin to have the framework for creating custom post types and custom fields. It’s free and you can download it directly from

For the advanced features from Meta Box, we need some of its extensions:

Create a Custom Post Type

Go to Meta Box > Post Types > Add New to create a new post type.

Create a custom post type

After publishing, we’ll have a menu named Recipe in the Admin Dashboard.

Created post type appears in the Admin Dashboard

Let’s create custom fields in the next step.

Create Custom Fields

Go to Meta Box > Custom Fields to create fields. These are the fields that I created:

Created fields

Pay attention to a special field for the video. Since Brizy supports displaying the video preview from the link saved in the type of text. So, instead of using the URL field or the oEmbed to save the video link as other tutorials, I’ll use the Text field.

Use Text field to save the link of video

After creating all the fields, move to the Settings tab, choose Location as Post Type and then select Recipe to apply these fields to it.

Set location for the created fields

Then, you can easily see all the created custom fields in the post editor. Just fill in the recipe’s details.

Create the Page

Go to Brizy > Templates to create a new template.

Create the Page

Remember to set the condition to set this template for the single post/page of the Recipe.

Set the condition for the page

First, go to the Global Blocks to set the header for the page.

Set the header for the page

To display the name of the recipe, add a Title element. It’ll automatically get the data from the post title.

Add a title element

For the first section, I divided information into two columns. One column is for the image of the recipe and the other is for the timing information. So, add a Column element.

Add a Column element

Drag the Featured Image element to the first column. The image will be displayed immediately.

Drag the Featured Image element to the first column

Next, I’ll add Row inside the second column. Each row will be used for each type of timing information.

Add Row inside the second column

Inside the row, add a Text element, then choose Typography to customize the text. You will see a small icon button to choose more options from a dropdown list for the text.

The first one is to add a custom text that you can type any text as you want into the element. All the rest ones on the list are the names of custom fields. Since we save the data about the time in custom fields, choose the corresponding ones.

Choose Typography element

To compare the type of time, add another Text element. Set it as Custom Text to change the text into the type of time.

Add another Text element

For other information about the time, do likewise.

Do likewise with other information

Now, let’s get the Ingredient section. Add a Text element and set it as a heading. Then, type the name of the section.

Add a text element and set it as a heading

To display the information about the ingredients that is stored in custom fields, add another Text element below the heading and also connect it to a custom field. The content will be displayed immediately.

Add another Text element

For other sections, just do the same.

In the Video section, instead of adding Text, add a Video element. A default video will be displayed.

Add a Video element for the Video section

To display the video about the recipe, click to the preview button. Beside the pre-set link, there is also the icon to connect with custom fields.

Click the preview button

We’ve done getting all the information about the recipe. Add a new block and then go to the Global Blocks section once again to add the footer for the page.

This is how it displays on the frontend.

All the information has been obtained

Style the Page

Back to the template editor of Brizy, you can change the column width as well as the settings of each element to have the style as you want. Just customize one by one, then you will see the new look of the page.

Change the column width

Here is the result that I want.
