Example of a product page

Video Version

Before Getting Started

In this case, my product page is about car rental and it contains the product’s detailed information. All of this information will be saved in posts of a custom post type. The name of the product and its description are the title and content of the post. The remaining detailed information will be saved in the different custom fields.

So to get started, we need 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 wordpress.org.

To have advanced features of Meta Box, we need some its extensions:

Since this page is built by Breakdance, make sure you activate and update to the latest version to have full integration with Meta Box.

Create a Custom Post Type

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

Create custom post type by Meta Box

After publishing, you will see a new menu in the admin dashboard.

Create Custom Fields

Go to Meta Box > Custom Fields to create a new field group.

Create a new field group for custom fields

Here are the fields I created to save information about the product. They are just some basic fields for typical information, so just create them as usual.

All the needed custom fields for the product for instance

For the information such as rental price, car year and max passengers, they are just numeric information. So choose the Number field.

Created number fields for some of the product information

You can fill in an example year so that when entering information about the car year. So, users can easily understand and enter the information correctly.

Fill in the Placeholder for the custom fields

Continue with the max passengers' information. You also can enter numbers in the Min value and Max value boxes to limit the number of passengers.

Choose min and max values to limit the value input to the fields

Next, choose the Select field to contain selective information. So, you can fill in the options into the Choices box.

Set some options for choosing in the fields

For other information, select the Text field. In the Input description box, you can add some descriptions to add information to the field.

For the image of the product, choose the Image Advanced field to allow users uploading multiple images.

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

Move to the Settings tab, and select the post type to apply the fields to it

Now, you will see all the created fields when editing posts in Car Rental.

Create a new template for page by using Breakdance

In the Location settings, choose Car Rentals in the Single section to apply this template to the single page of that post type.

Apply template to the single page of your product post type.

Then, just edit the newly created template with Breakdance.

First, add a Section to cover all the content of the page.

Since I want to divide content on the page into 2 columns, I add a Column element, and choose the suitable layout.

Add a column element and choose the suitable layout for new page

In the first column, add a Gallery element to display product images.

Add a gallery element for product page

Because we saved the products’ images in a custom field created by Meta Box, click on the Insert Dynamic Data icon > Meta Box section > choose the Gallery field which is the one we used to save the images.

Save the images and set up it on the gallery

Then, you will see all the images displayed immediately.

That’s all for the first column. Let’s move to the second one.

First, add a Post Title and Post Content to display the name and description of the product which are default of WordPress.

For the pricing, add a Text element.

There will also be an icon to insert dynamic data into the element. Because the price is also saved in a custom field, we will choose the field from the Meta Box section as well.

You will see the price displayed already, buy only the number.

the price displayed of the product was showed on the product page

To display the unit of the pricing, click to the Rental Price option > Advanced to add extra text in the Prepend and Append boxes.

Use a div to create information of page

For the rest information, each row contains two types of the text: the text on the left is statics and the right one is data from the custom fields. So, we will use a Div and some elements inside for each row.

Then, add a Heading element to add the static text on the left side of the row.

Next, add a Text element. To get the information saved in custom fields, click to the Insert Dynamic Data icon > Meta Box section and choose the corresponding field.
