In the previous posts of the Creating a Team Members Page series, we have tried with many page builders and Meta Box only. To continue, let’s see how to create the member page using Meta Box and Kadence.

This page is an example. It shows all your team members and some of their information.

Before Getting Started

Each member information is saved in a post of a custom post type and displayed as a name card. For members' information, the name and the avatar of the member are the title and the featured image of the post. Some extra information such as position, Facebook, Instagram, and Mail will be saved in custom fields.

These are some tools we need in this practice:

The last one is the pro version of Kadence with some extra types of blocks to build the page.

Create a New Custom Post Type

Go to Meta Box > Post Types > Add New to create a new one for the team members.

go to Meta Box, Post Types to create a new one

After publishing, the created custom post type will be displayed in the admin dashboard.

Create Custom Fields

As mentioned before, we’ll create some custom fields to save some common information about each member.

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

go to Meta Box, Custom Fields to create a new field group

These are the fields that I created:

Some custom fields created to save the members information

For the position, use the Select field which provides some options to choose from.

For the position, use the Select field to have some options to choose from

Then, fill in those options into the Choices box.

For other information such as Facebook, Instagram, and Mail, you can choose the URL field to save the link for those social networks.

Choose the URL field to save the link for those social networks

Besides, you can use other field types to save other kinds of members’ information as you want.

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

Set the Location for the field group as Post Type, and select Team Member to apply these fields to it

Go to the post editor, and you will see the created custom fields.

Just input information for your members.

Create a Query Card

To get information of each member from posts, we should create a query card first. This is a new feature of the Advanced Query Loop from Kadence. It allows us to define the template for individual posts within the loop.

Go to Kadence Blocks > All Query Cards and create a new one.

Go to Kadence Blocks > All Query Cards and create a new query card

set the name of the query loop card

At the first time, you will see the card display data from blog posts by default. Go to the right sidebar, and set the preview as the post type that we created.

Set the preview of the query card as the post type that we created

The preview will change, but it’s just changing in the preview, not querying any data.

I’ll design the cards for each person with two columns inside. So add a Row Layout block and choose the layout for the content in the card.

Open the structure of block to easily see the structure of content

You can remove the default blocks inside the query card which you don’t use.

In the first column of the added Row Layout block, add the Advanced Image block for the member avatar.

In the first column, add the Advanced Image block for the member avatar.

Enable the dynamic image for this block. Then choose the Featured image from the Post to display them.

Enable the dynamic image for the Advanced Image block, then choose the Featured image from the Post to display them

The next part is a group of icons for social network linking. So, add a Section block.

Then, add an Icon block inside this section.

Choose an icon for it.

Choose the wanted icon on the right sidebar

Also, enable the dynamic link.

And, set the link from the Post Custom Field.

Then, choose the name of a field where you save the link in the Custom Field box.

Duplicate the block to add an icon for another social network.

Then, just change the field for the link to get the right one from the corresponding field.

change the field for the link of instagram

change the field for the link of mail

Next, move to the second column.

To get the name of the member, you can use the Title block as usual. But in this case, I want to have more options to customize its style, so I choose the Dynamic HTML block.

choose the Dynamic HTML block for the name of the member to have more options to customize its style

Then set the HTML Content as Post Title to get the member name from the title of the post.

set the HTML Content as Post Title

We also use this block to get information about the position.

also use Dynamic HTML block to get information about the position

Choose the HTML Content as Post Custom Field.

Choose the HTML Content as Post Custom Field

And look for the Position field on the dropdown list.

look for the Position field on the dropdown list

For the description of members, do the same and set the HTML Content as Post Excerpt.

For the description of members, do the same and set the HTML Content as Post Excerpt

That’s all the information of the members that I want to show.

Add Query

We regulated how the information was displayed in the Query Card, but haven’t stipulated where it will query from. So now, go to add a new query in Kadence.

Go to Kadence Blocks > All Queries and add a new query.

Go to Kadence Blocks, All Queries and add a new query to stipulate where the information will query from.

There is a field to choose which post type we want to query from. Choose the post type that we use for the members.

Choose the post type that we use for the members

And, don’t forget to select the created card in this box.

select the created card in the box

Then this loop will inherit the content and styling from the created query card.

So, we’ve done the query basically.

Kadence provides some extra blocks here to add filter, pagination, or sorting to the loop.

extra blocks to add filter, pagination, or sorting to the loop provide by Kadence

I’ll try to add pagination for example.

There are also options to customize the pagination, but I’ll keep it as default.

Display on the Page

First, go to Pages > Add New to create a new page as usual.

go to Pages, Add New to create a new page as usual

Add the Advanced Query Loop block provided by Kadence.

Then, choose the query loop we created in the previous step.

Go to the page on the front end, you will see the page displaying all the members’ information, along with the pagination that I added.

Style the Page

Go back to edit the query loop, you can change some parameters in each block, even each one that we use for the query card, to have a better look.

Here is the final look of the team member page that I want.

Last Words

With the help of custom fields from Meta Box and query cards from Kadence, creating a team members page becomes easier.

In another case, if your members also are users on the site and you’re looking for another way to display their information in a leaner display, you can follow this tutorial on displaying user list on frontend.

Let’s try and share the result with us in the comments. If you want to suggest any tutorials, feel free to leave a comment and keep track of our blog. Thanks for reading!
