    Hey wondering if someone could help me!
    I have so far avoided completely using a page builder but I’m stuck on this one! I don’t know if I’m thinking about it the wrong way but anyway hopefully someone here can give me a helping hand!
    I created a URL field admin side and I want to display the URL field as a button in the frontend - each post will have a different URL so needs to be dynamic!
    What am I missing!
    Trying not to have to use a page builder as I have site almost complete and was able to do without 😂😂😂 hopefully this issue doesn’t ruin my mojo lol

    Thank you for reaching out.

    After creating the custom fields with MB Builder, please follow the documentation to know how to display field value on the frontend by using the code


    I have already checked this! Using the shortcode it does not display as a link in the frontend of the site! Just as plain text!


    Hey I have tried everything. The url is just not clickable on the frontend.

    I am using the shortcode.

    You need to show the field value in the attribute href of the <a> tag to make it clickable. Just like

    <a href="<?php echo rwmb_meta( 'field_url_id' ) ?>">Button Link</a>

    or create your own shortcode to use the shortcode in the editor


    A url should just be clickable by default. I have switched to Advanced Custom Fields.
    I bought Metabox because it said it would be easy. I couldnt understand your docs so resorted to ACF.

    Hopefully you'll fix this for the future. Maybe even add a custom button field that can be shown in the frontend with a shortcode.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    I will inform the development team to improve the shortcode to show the link on the frontend for the field type url.
