Understanding Terms Group shortcode

In WordPress, The item in Tag, Category, Listing Location, Listing Category is called Term. EG: We add New York to Listing Location. New York is called Term

Wilcity provides various shortcodes (Term Boxes, Rectangle Term Boxes, Modern Term Boxes, Masonry Term Boxes) that allow you can show up Terms on the Front-page. These shortcodes have the same functionality but different from styles, We call them Terms Group.

In this tutorial, We will use Rectangle Term Boxes to explain Terms Group feature.

Setting up Rectangle Term Boxes shortcode

Step 1: Click on Pages -> Your Front page

Step 2: Click on Add New shortcode

Step 3: Search for Rectangle Term Boxes and insert this shortcode to Editor

Understanding Rectangle Term Boxes shortcode settings

Term Redirect:

There are 2 options Self Term Page and Search Page.

Self Term Page: Which means when clicking on a Term, the browser will redirect to its page. To setup the Term page, please read #placeholderhere#

Search Page: Instead of redirecting to self Term page, it will redirect to Search page. To setup Search Page, please read and follow Setting up Search Page

Taxonomy Type

Specifying what taxonomy will be used on the shortcode.

If Taxonomy Type is Listing Location, Select Listing Locations will be shown up. And If Taxonomy Type is Listing Category, Select Listing Categories will be shown up.

Select Listing Location / Listing Category

This feature was not added from original, It’s available from Wilcity 1.2.0.

So, Why did we decide to add this feature? Let me explain it:

Imaging that We have a group of Listing R in New York City and these listings belong to Restaurant Category.

We have a group of Listing H in New York City and these Listings belongs to Hotel Category.

This feature helps to split Restaurant Category and Hotel category to 2 different Term Boxes.

The above example, When clicking New York, it will redirect to Search page and it will show up all Listings that belongs to Restaurant category in New York city
