We have been in a new year for a month already. Looking back to 2019, we have some exciting things to share with you. This isn’t a brag. Just want to show you what we’ve reached, together.
There is not only a way to embellish your custom metaboxes and custom fields created by Meta Box plugin by adjusting size, space, color, … as in the previous post, but also adding icons into their title. Instead of using only text for the meta box’s title or field name, we can use icons for addition or alternative. It is quite simple to do, let’s see how.
Custom fields normally have a default padding, color, border, font, etc. which may not fit your design in either backend or frontend. So you may want to change how they display, making them more eye-catching. That’s the moment you want to style them.
So do the custom fields created by Meta Box. You definitely can style every custom field created by Meta Box as you want. In this post, I will give you some way to use CSS to style the fields.
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.
In the previous post, we have created features that allow users to sign up a Guest Author account then submit a post from the frontend. If we stop here, the submitted post will be published right after the Guest Author press the Submit button.
Guest Author is a kind of guest account in which the visitors can register and use it to submit a post without any admin permission. This helps you have more content for your site, so it absolutely benefits you. From an order of my client, I saw that adding this is pretty interesting then want to share with you how to do it. Of course, using Meta Box.
Yesterday, we released several improvements for Meta Box: the new version 5.2.0 with better performance for object fields, a new MB Core extension for Core Bundle, and a totally new settings page for Meta Box AIO. Let’s see what’s new in these improvements.
Among the various types of online advertising, classified advertisement is probably the earliest-developed type that still exists. Over the years, the classified websites have improved its interface and features, but they are still based on the basic features which are:
- Allows users (sellers) to register an account, post a product or service with detail information;
- Allows the audience (buyers) to search and view the products.
One of the most reputed websites in classified advertising is Ebay.com. I’m going to show you how to create a classified ads website in WordPress using Meta Box which follows Ebay’s model.
As you know, by default, WordPress comes with two post types: page and post. If you want a more variety of suitable post types to choose from, e.g., a post type for products, you have to create them yourself. Such post types are called Custom Post Types.
