Custom Fields
Support General Bug: Checkboxes saved in custom table but shown in UI

    I have a custom post type with a set of custom fields. These fields are saving to a custom table.

    Initially when I create a new post all information is saved and displayed correctly on the UI after the page refreshes. If I then change the text in a text area, the checkboxes that were previously checked in the UI are no longer checked. The database still holds the correct information, but for whatever reason it is not being displayed on the UI.

    Hi Purdue,

    I've re-checked and don't see that problem. Can you post your code here to test?


    Custom Fields:

    To recreate:
    1. Fill out all the fields for a new benefit.
    2. Save/Publish
    3. The page reloads
    4. All fields have saved successfully and are displayed correctly in the UI
    5. Change the public description of the benefit
    6. Save/Publish
    7. The page reloads
    8. The checkboxes are no longer checked (but the database does still hold the values)

    Thanks a lot for your code. I see it doesn't work with checkbox_list field type. Let me fix and update the plugin.


    Has a fix been added for this? I'm seeing the same issue.

    Hi guys, I've just fixed it. Please update MB Custom Table to the latest version. The AIO plugin will be updated later.


    Thank you very much,
    working as expected now.



    I'll wait until the update is pushed to AIO and confirm then. Thanks, Anh!

    AIO has just been released. Please take a look!


    I've tried to update AIO, but it doesn't seem to be working. It appears to update successfully (I get a green update box that displays the message: Updated!) but when I reload the page, the plugin still has the old version number and option to "update now."
