Using the Documents block

The Documents block provides a means to display a list of downloadable documents.

It creates its own curtom post type, Documents, for this purpose.

This also means using the Documents block is a two part process. Setting up the documents in WP admin, and then setting up the blocks.

Enabling Documents content type

Before using the Documents block, you will need to enable the Documents content type. This is off by default as we don’t want to clutter your menus unnecessarily.

Go to the PizazzWP menu and to Options and tick the box for “Show Documents content type”. Then save. You will probaly have to reload the admin to make the Documents type show up.

Adding and Editing Documents
