Query Builder CCT Query Type

This overview will describe all the settings of Query Builder’s Custom Content Type Query type, which is a part of the JetEngine plugin.

JetEngine functionality allows you to create a Custom Content Type and a Listing template. That listing can be further displayed via the Listing Grid widget or block, but you can’t query it. 

To decide what CCT items to add to the list, you will have to use Query Builder. Custom Content Type Query allows you to create a more precise list of items and display them via the Listing template and Listing Grid.

Let’s go through the settings.

  • From Content Type — in this drop-down menu, you will find all created Custom Content Types, so choose the one you need;
  • Number — define the number of items shown in the grid. If you add the JetSmartFilters Pagination to the Listing Grid, this feature will determine the number of items per page;
  • Offset — type here how many of the first posts you would like to skip;

Status— only the items with the status you have chosen here will be added to the list.

NOTE
If the Maps Listings setting is activated in the WordPress Dashboard > JetEngine > Modules tab of your website, you’ll see the following geo search settings while creating a CCT Query. You can read their description in the How to Set Geo Search Based on User Geolocation tutorial.
