    Hi there,

    I have been hard-pressed for weeks now, on how DailyMail and a few other websites accomplish this.
    I want to implement this on my website.

    Please, can any WordPress expert help?
    Any plugin to do this?
    Any means on how to achieve this?

    Just like in the picture, where the arrow is pointing to some highlighted points.
    I want to a box below my post title, and above my social share buttons, Ads, Comments link, Date and Category, etc.

    THANK you so much, am open to discussion on how to achieve this.

    Cant see the image, but usually you place things in certain sections via so called “hooks”.

    Depending on what theme you use you have either no hooks, a couple or a lot.

    I.e. Genesis and Astra offer a lot of hooks that you can use.

    Plugins may offer this ability also. One prominent one that comes to mind is WooCommerce.

    Thank you very much for the vote of confident. Even though I won't want to publicly show the little knowledge I have on wordpress, this seems like it may take more than just a plugin to fix.
    But sincerely, thank you.

    I need to read more about hooks, and it's pretty amazing what I don't know.

    Somehow the image is showing and I see what you’re getting at.

    You could try to add this with the help of Advanced Custom Fields or Meta Box

    You can order a plugin in freelance
    I have not seen free
    all major sites, including yours, are used by programmers for the implementation of developments
    if they pay a lot of money for it why should it be publicly available
    After all, to realize this, you also need to have a lot of money and not all developers have it, and not all customers
    as for me, I need to do the minimum functionality and monetize to the maximum and reinvest in the final work

    I am not sure if daily mail is using wordpress for their platform, but there are various plugins you can use to accomplish this.
