extra-field-addon

Sometimes adding an extra something can transform any post from dull & boring, to fun and exciting! Today, we bring this extra something to your custom post types. For the first-time ever, we're launching a Post Type Builder addon: Extra Fields! This addon works hand-in-hand with the Post Type Builder, allowing you to create 8 new field types on your custom posts. Simply install and activate this addon, and start creating posts with 8 new modules on your Meta Box builder. Here's what this addon comes with:

  1. Video = Insert an unlimited number of Youtube/Vimeo/MP4 videos, anywhere on your custom post type. Display it either on a 2 or 3 grid column.
  2. Rating = Choose from over 320+ icons, and use any one of them to rate your products, movies, or any post you want. You can set it to have only admin users, or public visitors to rate your post.
  3. Map = Showcase any location in a map, with a pointer and text tooltip, anywhere on your post.
  4. Date = Select the date that will appear on your post, with a date & time calendar picker.
  5. Slider = Showcase a slider image/video that will allow you to adjust the speed, and transition style.
  6. Gallery = Display your images in grid, showcase, or lightbox format.
  7. Progress Bar = Highlight skills or ongoing projects with percentages, custom labels, and animated progress bars.
  8. Icon = Choose from over 320+ icons, and insert a link on each icon to redirect users when they click on the icon.

Make your posts extra fun and extra awesome, with the new Extra fields addon!

Matteo Corradini – From Book Writer to Web Design, Connecting My Creativity with Themify

Matteo Corradini

Hi! My name is Matteo Corradini and I’m an Italian children's book writer, and a web designer. When I first started writing, my only tools were a pen and a paper. And even today, I still rely on them to write my stories. However, in today's time and age, I realized that for me to be able to share my work, books, or even workshops that I've done with kids, I needed to create an online platform for it to be accessible. With the help of Themify, I was able to do this. Themify provided a platform that's very easy to use, but at the same time, gave me the flexibility I needed to create amazing layout designs. This inspired me to continue to learn more about web design, which inevitably led me to become a web designer. Being a writer and a web desinger worked hand-in-hand, as I was able to create both the content and graphic needed for my own personal, and client sites. I was able to take on different types of projects such as site designs for institutions and museums. Themify made me realize that I didn't need a platform that gave me 10,000 themes, but rather, a few unique and special ones could go a long way. (more…)
