    Hi Vikas,

    Please share the code that creates the custom field group, and sub-fields. I will check it on my end.

    add_action( 'init', 'your_prefix_register_post_type' );

    To get the field value, you just need to pass the field ID to the first argument of the helper function.

    mb.rwmb_meta( 'event_speaker', '', event.ID )

    Get more details in the documentation


    Hi Long,
    I tried but not able to display. I am somewhat familiar with PHP and but not with Twig.
    So for the time being, I will use Advanced Custom Fields for my template. But I will surely give MB Views a try, when there will be a detailed documentation with a simple example on using and displaying Custom Post Types with MetaBoxes (custom fields)in the MB Views for example on Home Page.

    Hi Vikas,

    Maybe the cache still loads the first time. Please try to clear the cache and check the field value again. Here is the screen record I've tried to use your code on my local site


    Thanks, that worked.
    Kindly also advise, on how to display the image in twig, like in the above example, there is one custom field with ID event_speaker_image. How to display that?

    Further, is it possible, to write simple PHP instead of twig in the views? I tried to write PHP code, but the output is the code itself and not the result.

    I have found a cookbook regarding functionality of twig with customfields, but it is more focused on ACF, so not much of help.

    Long Nguyen


    The setting multiple of the field image is set to true by default so the helper function will return an array of images. You need to loop through the value return, example:

    {% set images = mb.rwmb_meta( 'event_speaker_image', '', event.ID) %}
    {% for image in images %}
        <img src="{{image['full_url']}}" />
    {% endfor %}

    Get more details in the documentation

    Regarding the PHP code with Twig, it would be better if you create your own function by PHP code then use it in the View via the proxy mb..


    Okay Thanks.
    Yes, PHP function with proxy mb. is a good idea. I will try it, and will contact, in case I requre further help.
    Thanks once again.


    It is a sort of case study request, if possible.
    Kindly create a guide containing simple examples on various custom fields and how to display those in MB Views. It will be very helpful, to cut the time, which is wasted in searching various online sources to do simple things, but unfortunately, there are very minimal tutorials/resources, when it comes to Metabox, as compared to ACF, Toolset and Jetengine.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    If you search for some cases to show the field value on this forum, such as

    combine with the documentation of MB Views and field You will see that it's so easy to show the field value.

    We will also try to improve the documentation to help new users understand more to use the View.
