Normally, when you want to add a map to show your location, for example, way to your company, there are 2 popular methods: embedding Google Maps code directly to your website or use a plugin as guided in this article. However, if you have a listing page site, the kind of page that listing all the restaurants in a city, and you need to display maps for individual restaurants, both methods above are impossible.
I’m back to bring you the next part of this series. In this part, we are adding a booking form to the Room’s page which shows all the room’s information. This form allows your customers to submit a booking from frontend easily.
It is important to take the security of our websites seriously because none of us wants to end up losing crucial site data or a scenario where the website dies forever.
Many factors can cause the security of your website to get compromised such as a hacker attack, data breach, Cross-site Scripting, SQL Injection, DDoS attacks, Backdoor Trojans, Ransomware, or anything as simple yet threatening as Internet fraud. The truth is that as a webmaster, any individual or team cannot afford the loss of value and integrity caused due to any such events to their website.
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 this series, we would like to introduce a way to build a Hotel Booking website using Meta Box. Usually, a Hotel Booking page has 4 common pages as below:
- Room’s page where you show all the room information in the frontend;
- Booking page in backend for your internal using;
- Booking page in frontend for your customer’s using;
- Booking management page in the backend.
We are going to create all the above pages in this series with 4 posts. Regarding the customer accounts to make a booking, we have a post for your quick reference: How to Add Guest Author in WordPress using Meta Box.
Favicon refers to Favorite Icon, which is a small icon displayed in the tab’s name on the browser. Users can distinguish each tab by this icon. It often has the size is 16x16px and is saved in a file named
favicon.io in the root folder of the server. It also is considered as an abridged logo of your business.
Every website often has a favicon applied to all pages on the site. But, you may want to highlight your products by set individual favicon for each product page. Using Meta Box plugin along with editing the theme a little bit will help you get it.
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.
Having a website for your business is one of the best marketing strategies you can apply. After all, in the World Wide Web, your opportunities are limitless. The world is at the tip of your fingers, and this is an audience that you shouldn’t miss.
However, if you feel like your website currently isn’t performing as well as it should, that could be a problem. Not only do you cease to be relevant and useful, but you’re wasting resources as well. In this situation, you should consider re-evaluating your website design and making the necessary changes.
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.
