Continuing the series of displaying images from cloneable fields, today we’ll use Meta Box and another page builder - Bricks.

Take the brand logos as an example:

Example of displaying images from cloneable fields

Before Getting Started

Typically, we’ll use a custom post type to create multiple posts for brands. But now, I’ll do another way more conveniently and simply - creating a settings page. All brand information will be input onto that page. It means that all of them will be in one place only.

All brand information is put into the settings page

For this practice, we need these tools:

Create a Settings Page

Go to Meta Box > Settings Page > Add New.

In my case, the settings page is quite simple and contains only the image of each brand. As there’s no special setting, I'll just change the option name.

Create a settings page

After publishing, you’ll see a new settings page named Brands appears as below:

Created settings page appears in the menu dashboard

It’s blank now.

Create Custom Fields

Let’s create custom fields for the settings page. They will be used to save the brand information.

In the admin dashboard, go to Meta Box > Custom Fields > Add New. I created fields with the structure below.

Field Types of Field ID
Brand Group Group brand_group
          Brand Logo Upload Single Image brand_logo_upload
          Brand Name Text brand_name

This is a group with 2 subfields inside. It is also set to be cloneable to have more spaces to add information for different brands.

Set the created fields to be cloneable

After that, go to the Settings tab and choose the Location as the settings page that we’ve created to apply the custom fields to it.

Set location for the created fields

Back to the settings page, and you’ll see the created custom fields appear. Moreover, to add another brand’s information, you can press the Add more button.

Now, just fill in the brand’s information in the fields.

Display Images on the Frontend

Let’s edit a page with Bricks. I chose the homepage for example.

First, to contain all the brands' information, add a new section. Then, put it in any place where you want to show it on that page.

Next, to add the title of the section, choose the Heading element and name it.

Choose the heading element to add the title of the section

In the Container element inside the section, select the Div element to contain the brand information.

Then, to get the data of brands, enable the Use query loop button. And in the Query section, choose the type of data source as MB Group: Brand Group. In the name, you can see the ‘Brand Group’ is the name of the group that we’ve just created.

Choose the type of data source as MB Group

For the brand’s logos, as they are saved in the custom field created by Meta Box, choose the Image element > choose the Select Dynamic data button > select the right field - Brand Image Upload. Now all the brand's logos are displayed already.

All the brand's logos are already displayed

For the brand’s names, choose the Basic Text element. We also use the Select Dynamic data button and choose the field correspondingly. Then, you’ll see the brand’s name displayed immediately.

On the homepage, you’ll see all of the brand information.

Style the Section

Now, go back to the page editor with Bricks, choose each element and change the settings to style them in your own way.

After styling, all the brand logos are displayed as we want.
