Having a FAQs page on your site will help the visitors to find the information they want quickly. There’re many ways to create a page for FAQs and in this practice, we’ll share with you one of the most helpful ways by using Meta Box and then use Breakdance to build it.

This is an example of a FAQs page that I created.

Before Getting Started

The FAQs page includes several couples of question and answer that are saved in custom fields.

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

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

  • Meta Box Group: to organize custom fields into pairs for questions and answers;
  • Meta Box Builder: to have a UI on the backend to easily create custom fields.

They’re all in the Meta Box AIO. If you haven’t had it, you can download and install each one individually.

Finally, Breakdance to build the page. Make sure you activate and update to the latest version to have full integration with Meta Box.

Create a New Page

Go to Pages > Add New to create a new blank page.

Go to Pages > Add New to create a new blank page

It will be our FAQ page.

Create Custom Fields

Go to Meta Box > Custom Fields > Add New. This is the structure of the fields I created:

Name Field Type Settings
FAQs Group Group
  • Cloneable
  • Collapsible
      Questions Text -
      Answer Textarea -

Each question will go along with an answer. So, we add a group to set them in a pair.

Since we may have more than one pair of questions and answers, I set this group cloneable.

Set this group cloneable because we may have more than one pair of questions and answers

Then we’ll have an Add more button like this.

the Add more button

Each pair of question and answer may have long content, or there may be too many pairs, so you should set this group collapsible.

Then they will display in a more succinct way.

And you can add titles for the group as follows. The {#} variable is for numbering the pair and the {question} variable is the ID of the question field to show the question on the title.

After creating all the fields and having reasonable settings, move to the Settings tab, choose Location as Post type, and select Page. To apply the fields to the page you want, go to the Advanced location rules section below and choose your page. In this case, I chose FAQ.

Set the location of custom fields created in the Settings tab

After publishing, you will see all of the custom fields in the page editor. Just enter some questions and answers. Click Add more to add other pairs.

Create a Global Block

We’ll have more than one pair of questions and answers. So let’s create a global block to display the information and set the layout and style for a pair.

Go to Breakdance > Global Blocks to create a new one.

Go to Breakdance > Global Block to create a new one

Add a Div element to cover the block.

For the content of the question, add a Text element.

For the content of the question, add a Text element

Because the question is saved in the custom field created by Meta Box, we should insert dynamic data from the field to this element through this icon button.

Look for the Meta Box section, then select the name of the field that we use to save the question.
