Resources: Understanding The Basics

 

Today I am  going to do a brief walk through of the resources section. Resources is a unique custom post type that can be used to organize FAQ’s, product documentation or anything else you can think of.

How to begin

First I would recommend you create a page and call it whatever you like.  While you are in the backend go ahead a create a chapter and add a new post to it. The post should have some h2 and h3 headings  (I will explain why later). Remember to select which chapter you want the post to show in as well.

There also some additional settings at pagelines > settings > resources that you can adjust to fit your needs.

Resources Title: This is the name of your resources.

Resources subject: What you section is about. 

Base Permalink Rewrite Slug: This is the slug tied to your resources.

So whats next

After we have done all the backend work lets visit the page you created.

By default there will be a yoursite-name content section on the page. We need to delete that and replace it with the resources section. Your page should look like this now:

resources

Now  click on the post under one of the chapters and remove its default section and replace it with the resources section so that everything is linked together properly. You will only have to do this step once and it will carry over to every other post under this custom post type.

The special stuff

The special thing about the resources section is that it makes menu item on the right that will help you users navigate through the post.

If you recall I asked you to add some h2 and h3 headings that’s because the resources section looks for these headings and making anchor links out them. So a reader can quickly jump to section on the page without actually reading the whole thing.

Very useful for product documentation and FAQ.

I hope this was useful if you have any questions post them in the comments below.

~Cheers
