  1. Navigate to JetEngine > JetEngine.
  2. Select the modules you want to use. For this tutorial, we’ll focus on Grid Gallery for Dynamic Field widget and Forms (Legacy).

Creating Your First Custom Post Type

  1. Navigate to JetEngine > Post Types.
  2. Click Add New.
  3. Name the Post Type “Sessions” in the name field. This will automatically create a slug.
  4. Skip the labels section unless you have specific naming requirements.
