Is there a straightforward way to create custom fields for module-based content on WordPress?


  1. User Creates page

    Creates Page content sections through forms

  • Row 1: Column 1 - Content A Column 2 Content B
  • Row 2: Column 2 - Full-width Content A
  • Row 3 Column 3 - Content A Column 2 Content B

This is based on using Bootstrap as the CSS.

I want the user to be able to not create HTML code if not necessary and fill out predetermined sections of the website.

Any tutorials or videos would help out tremendously. All I find is creating custom taxonomies and custom theme templates.

  • Here's a decent start: wpmudev.com/blog/creating-meta-boxes There are even meta box generating plugins. (The bootstrap CSS aspect of this is irrelevant.) It is entirely possible to generate your own meta boxes for existing post types (page or post) or for your own custom post type so that you can record information from the user and then output that in the correct manner you see fit.
