Templates for Items in Directory Sites

Once you’ve created the custom types, fields and taxonomy for directory items, it’s time to design a template that will display listings on the site’s front-end.

Before you begin designing a template, remember that you need some test content. You should create several listing entries in the WordPress admin, so you can design and preview your templates.

Assigning Templates to Posts Conditionally

You can create different templates for different types of items in your directory. Then, set conditions for when to use which template. You can base these conditions on WordPress fields, custom fields, taxonomies, and more.

Display Content Conditionally

Many listing sites will need to show some pieces of information conditionally. You can show and hide parts of the template based on fields and taxonomy.
