    Hi, a client wants to have a page designed just like this: http://www.trustdeedcapital.com/trust-deeds-available/ (middle section only – Available Trust Deeds). He wants to be able just to fill out the fields and have the info appear like that. Is there a plugin or a widget that would do the job? Any ideas would be welcome. Thank you!

    Hi,
    It can definitely be done. The basic idea is to have Custom Post Types. You’d set it up with several fields and labels. So the user adds a new “Deed”, and then you have templating so all these “Deeds” show up in a nice grid like that. Then you’d need to write CSS to make it look pretty. It’s a fairly good-sized coding job, but very doable for a good developer. Special purpose WP themes make heavy use of Custom Post Types, whether for product display, movie reviews, or what-have-you.

    For instance, I don’t have the Agentpress theme, but I would guess that it’s Custom Post Typing its little brains out. :-)

    Is there a plugin that does this? Possibly, but I don’t know of one. I would just code it myself.

    Dave

    You’re welcome.
    There are Custom Post Type plugins for sure, so that’s one avenue, but some coding and geeky setup may be needed, and those will not tend to have the templating, which is important to get your “look” for the output of the Custom Posts.

    If you have any difficulties using Custom Post Types, there is a plugin called WP Property that might help you – http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-property/screenshots/.
