I developed a page for a site that lists about 40 historical personalities featured in a novel. You can see the page as it stands (forget about the partial animation etc…that's all going).
It's my first site, but I thought the presentation was bad and the Total theme developer suggested I use Custom Post Types for this kind of repetitive content blocks. But I understood nothing about CPTs and how to use them in this context, until I watched a brilliant video on this site: “How To Extend WordPress With Custom Post Types & Custom Fields Using PODS”.
I have PODS, beaver builder and themer installed so I can follow along the video and create a CPT for Historical Figures and create a template for it. But in terms of how best to style a template to display the material, I am lost. I don't know what components in Beaver Builder (and I can buy add-ons if required) to use, whether I should put the results in a slider of some kind…just drawing a blank (never designed a site before). I'm pretty certain leaving it as it is is not great, but I would really value your suggestions as to how to design it afresh and what Beaver Builder components (including add-on components) would best suit the material.
Thank you for your assistance.
All the best
