Do you want to display your video list on your page? In this series, I will show you how to create a video gallery page with the page builders. In today's practice, we're going to find out how to do it with Meta Box and Zion.

This is the final look of the video gallery page.

Let’s do it step by step.

Video Version

Before Getting Started

The page is an archive page with a video list and their information. Each video’s information is kept in a single post of a custom post type.

In this tutorial, I use only 1 custom field to store the URL of the video instead of uploading the video on the website to avoid bloating the site. Then, display a video on the front end from the URL using Zion. You obviously can also add more custom fields to save extra information about the video.

So, we need the Meta Box core plugin to have a framework that allows creating custom post types and custom fields. It is available on wordpress.org.

Besides, we need some Meta Box’s extensions for advanced features:

You can download and install each extension individually or use the Meta Box AIO which has all the Meta Box extensions.

The last one is Zion Builder and its Pro Version to build the video gallery page.

Create a New Custom Post Type

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

Go to Meta Box, Post Types, Add New to create a new post type for the videos

Pay attention to the Supports tab when creating the post type. I want to display the author’s information on the gallery page, so check the box to enable the author feature.

check the Author box in the Supports tab to display the author’s information on the gallery page

After publishing, you can see a new menu, it’s your post type.

Create Custom Fields

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

Move to Meta Box, Custom Fields, Add New to create a new field group

As I mentioned before, I’ll create only one custom field to store the video URL. To display the video preview on the page, I highly recommend you use the oEmbed field instead of the URL field.

After creating the field, go to the Settings tab, choose the Location as Post type, and select Video to apply the custom field to this post type.

Now, you’ll see the created custom field in the post editor.

Pay attention to the Author box. This section is available since we set it to enable the author feature for the Video post type when creating it.

Now let’s move on to the next steps.

Create the Page

Go to Pages > Add News to create a new page for the video gallery, as usual.

Go to Pages, Add News to create a new page for the video gallery

Fill information and then remember to click on the area next to the title to disable the page title. We’ll get and display it by Zion later for more flexibility in styling.

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

Next, set the Query type as Query builder and Post type as Videos to query all the posts from this post type.

Remember to enable the Repeater Consumer to display all the posts in the chosen post type.

You will see nothing displayed now since we didn’t get any information from the video. So let’s add some elements to show them.

Display Video Information

Inside Container, for the video preview, add a Text element.
