    I created custom fields in Meta Box. I see them in in the add/edit page in WP. I go into Elementor see the names of the dynamic data and select one but then I can’t get any actual data to appear in the preview or save. I have tried so many things and am running out of patience. And yes I have a specific single page listing set to display data and my taxonomy displays but NOT the custom fields.

    Hi Matt,

    Can you tell me how did you setup the custom fields? Are they for posts or taxonomy? Can you share some screenshots?

    See image. In this use it is JUST custom fields. The custom fields are added with you plugin, they appear in the add/edit post. They are filled out. They are called with the dynamic data in Elementor but as you can see they don’t appear. It shows the default text when there is no data to show.

    Thanks for your help

    Also, the data in custom fields doesn’t always save when you add/edit posts.

    Anh, I know you are busy but I really need support on this. This is supposed to be a basic function of the plugin and it isn’t working for me. Waiting days to figure this stuff out is tough when there are project deadlines. Thanks for your support.

    Hi Matt,

    I see you’re using a widget called Dynamic Field in Elementor. It’s not what’s we support. We support dynamic tags in Elementor Pro which looks similar to this:

    1. Thanks for your response. You say “We support dynamic tags in Elementor Pro which looks similar to this:”

    Do you mean “dynamic tags” just the text field with the dynamic data link right?

    1. I now can’t even get the custom fields to save any data in the basic post page of WP wp-admin/post.php?post=343&action=edit. I add the data, click save and then reload the page and its gone from the editor. Please advise.

    Man..I deleted my entire setup thinking I did something wrong to start over. I reinstalled WP, Metabox, readded all the taxonomies and setup the custom fields and it’s still broken. The custom field data doesn’t save. What am I doing wrong?

    I have deactivated EVERY plugin except META and this still doesn’t work. Custom fields never save for a custom post type.

    Hi Matt,

    It’s not only text field, but also image field, gallery field, etc. Wherever a dynamic data, the plugin works.

    I now can’t even get the custom fields to save any data in the basic post page of WP

    Can you record a video with that (maybe using https://www.loom.com)? I couldn’t replicate it on my localhost.
