Home 7. Groups and Field Types

Available Groups

Below are shown all special field groups and widgets in the Bello WordPress theme.

Groups are areas of space used for grouping the fields and showing them in one coherent way. Bello comes with five groups and eight widgets that you can use right from the go. However, if you want, you can create more groups and more widgets. Each new widget can be easily sorted via native WordPress Appearance / Widgets section, however you want. But new groups can at the moment only appear underneath the main column content for each of the listing, but above the Amenities group. Hierarchy in the main column is such, that any new group other than the ones named belo will be shown below main content (text), excerpt, Media, MediaVideo and FAQ, but above the Amenties.

Field Types

Below are shown all supported field types in the Bello WordPress theme.

Fields are used to gather information from the user and show them on the listing search results or listing page. You can select which field you need, order them properly for the user interface (note that however you lay out the fields in the category will be the order user will see when they add their listings), and decide where to show them, as well in which subscription packages. There are some Bello specific field types that are not native to Metabox, but most of them are Metaboxes, as shown below. You can see how you can writhe them, what they’re used for, and what they transform to when they’re shown in a WordPress or user backend, listing details or in search.

Important note

Please note that once you setup the categories, you do setup the field visibility in each of the packages, even if you only have the Default package (which comes with the import). If you don’t setup the visibility you might end up with widgets not showing up or fields not showing up how you want to. Click here to find out more about custom field settings and their visibility in the packages.
