In the first post of this series, we created the page showing all the hotel room’s information. It normally has a button or several call-to-action areas to go to the booking page which allows your customers to make an order. However, ‘cause some businesses have strong direct channels, they want their sales to make booking orders for their customers as well. Along with that, to have you imagine how to create a booking page in the frontend later (which is in the 3rd post), I made this post to show you how to create one in the backend. That is for internal users only.
We’re happy to announce that all Meta Box extensions are now working nicely with SearchWP plugin, thanks to the SearchWP – Meta Box integration plugin. The extension is created and maintained officially by Jonathan Christopher, the author of SearchWP.
We worked so hard for this big update of Meta Box Builder in the last month. And today, the new major version of the plugin is available for download. Please login to your account and get it now!
The previous post has shown us how to create and work with a simple group. Nonetheless, much of your time will be squandered on creating every single group / field manually if a number of repeated groups / custom fields are repeated on a continuous basis. Therefore, a tool that can help you automatically clone them will be of great necessity.
One of the powerful features that help developers add more functions to a WordPress website is Custom Fields. Though most of us don’t use custom fields in an independent way, this is still a significant platform for digging deeper into WordPress.
For developers and WordPress newbies to easier work with custom fields, Meta Box has developed an extension called Meta Box Builder.
The importance of meta box and custom fields in WordPress has been emphasized in the previous posts. Due to their significance, they are used a lot and frequently in the development process of a plugin or theme to satisfy the need of users.
Instead of copying the code of custom fields and embedding it into a website, the export and import features we’re going to talk about in this post will help you to do that without touching the code. This method has the same advantages: synchronizing custom fields between sites, easy back up, and saving the setup time. But, there is a difference. If you don’t know where to embed, edit, or save code as instructed in the previous post, this method can help you to do them all.
Now, you know what custom fields is and in the previous post, we stopped in the step “WordPress calls the
update_metadata function to store data from custom fields in the database”. In this post, we’ll follow up that flow to figure out how WordPress organizes the database.
Bunching custom fields aim to rearrange the related custom fields into one group. For instance, one group of contact information contains related custom fields such as name, phone number, address and email. Grouping may make the custom fields look better and more logical when they display. In addition, it brings some other benefits of organizing data afterward.
