Custom Fields / Custom Post Type

Hi there!

I am currently evaluating various headless CMS to find out which CMS we should use for our project. We sell homepages for real estate agents and up to now we used Wordpress but we want to switch to a more modern solution that provides more speed and security.

One requirement that we have is that the real estate data needs to be presented. In Wordpress we used Custom Post Types for that which is basically a set of custom fields (key-value-pairs) with which the data of a real estate can be specified (e.g. type of building, price, number of rooms, living space, location, etc.). Furthermore, the CMS must be able to filter posts by these fields, so for example show all real estates of type X, in location Y with a price less than Z.

Is there a feature like that in Netlify CMS? Which would that be?

If not is there any other way to achieve that?

Any help is very much appreciated.

Regards,
Dirk

Hey! Sorry for the late reply. I think you’d be looking for the view_filters or view_groups, you can implement in the CMS config.


If you’re looking for technicalities you can take a deep dive into the issue that created the PRS for these here: https://github.com/netlify/netlify-cms/issues/3617 I followed it myself after I couldn’t find the documentation for a while haha. :slight_smile:
