CoreResources is your solution for organizing your online content and establishing your expertise.
CoreResources is a premium content resource plugin for WordPress sites. CoreResources allows you to quickly and easily build a user-friendly SEO-optimized resource hub into your WordPress website, and keep multiple types of content organized in your website’s admin back end.
By default, CoreResources comes with six essential resource types.
Yes! CoreResources comes with a data manager built in, allowing you to create additional resource types in just a few short steps, no development experience required!
Using CoreResources, your resource content will be automatically optimized for SEO performance.
CoreResources includes a Schema builder, that turns your content into structured data, providing context to search engines. Using CoreResources with Elementor, drag and drop the schema widget into your page and use the CoreResources Schema Builder to generate schema markup.
CoreResources includes archive and single post templates that are built with Elementor Pro. Please note that you will need the Pro version, as CoreResources utilizes Elementor Pro features such as dynamic tags and widget skinning abilities.
If your site is built without Elementor, you can still use CoreResources! Also included are WP Customizer options for archive views and single templates. Templates can also be overridden via your own child theme as well. Please note that in this case, you may need a developer to help if you plan on creating custom resource types and their corresponding templates.
CoreResources can be used on any WordPress site, theme, or plugin. If you experience compatibility issues, please contact us.
CoreResources integrates with Elementor page builder, with custom widgets built in to allow greater customization of resource page designs.

Elementor Templates are an essential building block for your Resource Center. You can style your entire Resource Center just by utilizing three various types of templates – archive, category archive, and single post. In this article, we will go over how to set up an archive page for a specific Resource Type. This is a page that displays all posts of a specified Resource Type. For example: yoursite.com/resources/videos.
To start, login to your WordPress site and navigate to the “Templates” section under Elementor on the left sidebar. From here you’ll click on “Theme Builder.” It’s important not to confuse this section with “Saved Templates.” Saved Templates refer to templated sections of a page, or a templated page you can reuse on different individual pages. The theme builder allows you to build a template for specific Post Types, like Resources.
You can learn more about the Theme Builder here. There are three main templates you will want to set up for CoreResources and you can learn about those in the following articles:
While logged in, navigate to the main Resources page and click “Customizer” on the top admin bar. This will bring up the Customizer settings on the left with the view of the Resources page on the right. As you change the settings inside the Customizer, the right side will refresh so you can visualize the changes in real time.
Here you can edit the Resource Archive, Resource Cards, Resource Single Template, and Resource Type archive.
FacetWP is a WordPress plugin that provides the ability to easily set up customized filters for your content. CoreResources has built in support for FacetWP to integrate with the resource library on the front-end.
To get started using FacetWP, first make sure FacetWP is installed in your site plugins. If you are using Elementor, you will also need to install the FacetWP Elementor Integration add-on.
An additional add-on you can install but is not necessary is the FacetWP Flyout add-on which adds the ability to turn the filters into a flyout menu on mobile devices. Support for custom styling on this is included with CoreResources when using Elementor.
