Working with Custom Post Types

#1

We’re building a custom module for a client that will allow them to drop in reviews for their various applications. The reviews are custom posts. Ideally, we’d like the client to be able to add multiple reviews via repeater select menus and then be able to sort those reviews in the settings. So, ultimately handpicking custom posts and being able to manually sort the order of the posts.

Right now we’re using content loop settings, but I’m having to add posts individually via the suggest field so each row is sortable in the builder. It’s not very intuitive for the client to use for what we’re trying to do, and despite the ‘review’ post_type being the default in the custom module’s loop settings (it shows properly in the select menu), it loads the module’s frontend.php using the ‘post’ post_type. Is there another setting somewhere I would need to change to load in the right post_type in the preview?

Is our ideal solution possible and, if so, do you have any BB-informed guidance to point us in the right direction on how to make it work?

Thank you!

I’ve been able to create a select menu using the post IDs and turn it into a repeater field which now allows us to order the custom posts within BB.

Does that solve your issue? If not, let me know and I can provide guidance.
