Before, we’ve known how to show posts with a specific criteria using some of page builders. In this practice, we will find another way to do it with the help of MB Views from Meta Box.

This is the archive page that I created as an example. Only products are on sale will be displayed:

Before Getting Started

Each dish is a post of a custom post type. In addition to the basic information of the dishes such as the name, description and the image of the dish, there may be some extra information. So, they will be saved in custom fields. In this case, I have two fields in order to save the original price and the promotional price. All the dishes, which have the promotional price, are on sale and will be displayed on the page.

In this practice, we need these tools:

Create a Custom Post Type

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

Create a custom post type

Then, you will see a new menu like this in the admin dashboard. It’s your post type.

New menu displays in the admin dashboard

Create Custom Fields

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

Create custom fields

Here are 2 fields I created as an example. The value stored in these 2 fields will be set to the condition to choose which dishes will be displayed.

Created fields

Since I want to know which dishes are having promotion, I set to show both these fields as an admin column like this:

Show created fields as admin columns

Check this box to show this field as an admin column. You will have this setting when you enable the MB Admin Columns.

Set the created fields as show as admin column

After creating all the fields, move to the Settings tab > Location as Post type > select Cuisines to apply these fields to it.

Set location for the created fields

Now, you’ll see all the created custom fields in the post editor of the Restaurants post type.

All the created fields appear in the post editor

Create the Archive Page

Go to Views > Templates to create a new template for the page.

Create a new template for the page

Instead of typing code, you will open the Insert Field and choose the field that you need. First, insert the Post Title for the page’s name.

Insert the post title for the page’s name
To display the posts, I’ll add some code as follows:

{% set args = { post_type: 'cuisine', meta_key : 'promotional_price', meta_value: '', meta_compare : '!=', meta_type : 'CHAR', posts_per_page: 6, order: 'DESC' } %}
{% set posts = mb.get_posts( args ) %}
{% for post in posts %}
{% endfor %}

Add some code

Let’s get through each line with me.

{% set args = { post_type: 'cuisine', meta_key : 'promotional_price', meta_value: '', meta_compare : '!=', meta_type : 'CHAR', posts_per_page: 6, order: 'DESC' } %}

This is used to declare getting posts from the Cuisine post type which slug is cuisine.

Along with that, I also added some attributes.

meta_key : 'promotional_price', meta_value: '', meta_compare : '!=', meta_type : 'CHAR'

All of these ones are to set the condition that stipulates that only the posts that have any value in the promotional price field will be got and displayed. 'promotional_price' is the ID of the Promotional Price field. meta_value: '', meta_compare : '!=', meta_type : 'CHAR' is to recognize if there is any data in the field or not. The data type to compare is character. If it is NOT that there is no character in the field, the post will be displayed.

{% set posts = mb.get_posts( args ) %}

This is the function to get posts.

{% for post in posts %}
{% endfor %}

This is a loop that we used to display multiple posts. Inside the loop, we’ll insert some fields to get data from them as follows to get the information about the products.

First, insert the Post thumbnail to display the dish’s image.

Insert the post thumbnail to display the dish’s image

Insert the Post Title once again, but this is for the name of the dishes which is saved in the title of the post.

Insert the post title for the name of the dishes

Next are the Promotional Price and Original Price.

Add the promotional price and original price code

Finally, the Post Content to display the dishes description.

Insert post content to display the dishes description

After choosing all the wanted fields to get data from, move to set the Location for this template as Page, then choose the name of the created page here.

Choosing all the wanted fields to get data from

Go back to the page on the frontend, you’ll see the dishes are displayed but with no styling.

Style the Page

For styling, you can go back to the Views to edit the template. You should add some div tags into the template. I also added the unit price for the pricing like this.

Add some div tags into the template

You also can add some CSS in the CSS tab of the view as follows.

This code is available on GitHub, so you can refer to it for more details.

Now, you will see a new look of the page on the frontend.
