Welcome to the Betta Boxes CMS plugin. This plugin turns your WordPress Blog into a powerful CMS, without the need to get down and dirty in the source code.
Betta Boxes gives you a clean, simple administration user interface to create custom fields, and link them to Posts, Pages, and any Custom Post Types you have!
Betta Boxes uses the default WordPress functionality of ‘post meta’. This means the plugin works with WordPress, rather than fighting against it.
You can create the following types of custom fields, and link them to any post types:
- Short Text
- Long Text
- HTML Text
- Drop Down
- Check Boxes
- Radio Buttons
- Color Picker
- Date Picker
- Time Picker
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
- Unzip the plugin to your
- Activate the plugin through the WordPress ‘Plugins’ menu in the administration area.
- This will create a new menu item under ‘settings’ in the WordPress administration area, labeled Betta Boxes.
See the /docs/ folder for a run through on how to use the plugin. Better FAQ coming soon.
You can also post of the forum, using the tag ‘betta-boxes-cms’. I hang around there from time to time, so I should see it pretty soon.
