The first days of June have passed and we’re happy to announce some changes for Meta Box and extensions. If you haven’t updated the plugins, it’s time to do now. And read below for details.
Not long time ago, I introduced Composer support for the premium extensions of Meta Box. However, in the actual project, sometimes you need free Meta Box extensions hosted on wordpress.org. Extensions such as MB Rest API and MB Relationships are really useful for some of your projects. Then how to use Composer for the WordPress plugins on wordpress.org? This article will show you how to do that.
I had an opportunity to work with Beaver Builder for quite a long time. This is a plugin that helps you build content for the website, which is recommended by many influencers, including Chris Lema and Pippin Williamson.
Your favorite Meta Box WordPress Plugin deal is only here for a limited time.
We’ve been hearing it for months…
“When are you going to bring back the Meta Box deal?”
You want users to register for an account on your website? And they must fill out additional information in their profile? But you don’t know how to create a user registration and user profile forms. Then use the MB User Profile plugin.
A week ago, we introduced the “clone as multiple” feature, which allows you to store cloneable values in multiple rows in the database. To make it works with your existing data, we make it optional and is turned off by default. However, some of you might want to convert the existing data to the new format, which allows you to perform a query based on custom field’s value. In this tutorial, I’ll show you a quick way to convert the existing custom field values to the new format and make “clone as multiple” feature works for you.
When creating a custom meta box, you also create a list of custom fields, each of which is an array of field settings. You probably will need to refer to field’s name, field’s options array (in a select field) or other settings later in your code. So, how to get the field settings array by field ID?
One of the most important features of Meta Box is field cloning. It allows you to create unlimited clones of fields’ inputs. This feature is also called repeatable fields in other plugins. In Meta Box, it’s built-in (free) and is supported in all fields, no matter that field is a simple input, a gallery (
image_advanced) or a group.
MB Frontend Submission is a powerful plugin to create forms for users to submit their posts from the frontend. At first, it was created for user-submitted posts. But do you know that the plugin can handle many kinds of frontend forms? In this post, I’ll show you how to use it to create a contact form. You’ll see how flexible it is and what it’s capable of.
