Field-bound Boxes

Every classifieds site has a field with important options that you may wish to feature over the others, and offer it as a filter in a standalone box. The Field-Bound Boxes Plugin allows you to create such boxes with links in the form of categories. The purpose of the Plugin is to allow your users to filter through multiple listings and quickly find the right one by a particular field option with one click.

How it works

The Plugin can add a number of boxes with links based on options of a required field from back end. Enjoying the flexibility of our content boxes you may set a position and page on which a box has to be displayed. The fact that you may apply icons and counters to links, allows you to represent the links in the form of categories. When a user clicks a field option, he is redirected to a separate page with all the listings that contain the field option selected.

Front End

In frontend, users will see a box featuring different links working as filters, for instance for car classifieds, a box may feature a list of car body styles, such as SUV, hatchback, sedan, pickup, and others. In addition to that, you may upload custom icons to give links in a box a better visual representation for users. A user who is looking for a pickup may click a corresponding link and navigate to the page, where all the listings with the corresponding body type are displayed. Much in the same way, for a property site, you may create a box featuring popular cities, such as Boston, New York, Los Angeles and others.

Interaction with other Plugins

The functionality of the Field Bound Box Plugin may further be enhanced if coupled with the Filter Plugin installed on your website. For instance, when a user clicks on a "hatchback" icon, he navigates to a page where only cars with a "hatchback" body style are displayed. The Filter Plugin in its turn allows the user to further filter through listings by selecting the price range, mileage, transmission and a range of other parameters.

Back End

The Plugin deploys a manager in back end allowing you to manage different field-bound boxes. Using the manager, you can create a box and position it exactly where you want it to appear be it top, bottom, middle, left/right or header position. The pages, where you want the box to be displayed may also be selected from back end by simply checking the desired ones and leaving all others unchecked. To customize the box further, you may select under which categories and classifieds types it will be shown. After creating and customizing the box, you may click “Add” and it will be displayed on your website. You may create several different field-bound boxes on your website, all of them will be displayed in a list in the Plugin manager. Should need arise, you may click any of them and manage it right from back end.

The Field-Bound Boxes Plugin helps users better navigate your site and quickly find the ads of their interest. Furthermore, the Plugin improves internal linking of your site, which contributes to SEO to a certain degree.
