Custom Fields
Support General Displaying Custom Fields - I feel stupid

    Hi everyone. I'm a Toolset Type(er) trying out the MB AIO and can't seem to make anything work. I won't complain about having to learn a new flow, but I do need help.

    I'm trying simply to display a custom post type and data collected from the custom fields associated with the CPT.

    Here's the gist -

    My CPT: - Stores
    Store info is collected via custom fields
    Fields used: text, multi-line, select, map

    To display the CPT, I'm using Beaver Themer. But, I've tried 2 different methods for displaying basic data and neither are working. They are:

    1. the Themer Text Box Module says its linking to the Meta Box fields, but when I select the custom field I want - nothing shows up.
    2. I've also tried the shortcode route - for instance: [rwmb_meta meta_key="add_1" post_id=""]; In this example, I have a Complete Address field whose field ID is 'add_1'. Since the post ID is optional I left it blank. That's not working either. Pretty sure I have this right - see here:

    I have other issues too, but this would be a great start for me to get these simple issues resolved. My preference is the shortcode route so I can please custom meta inline with other text and such.

    Here's other details:

    • Theme: Astra Pro
    • Plugins: Beaver Builder, Gravity Forms, Beaver Themer and all of the MB addons.

    Hi Neil,

    I answered you via email, but probably you haven't received it.

    Regarding your case, I think you can insert the value inline in 2 ways:

    • Using the built-in shortcode. Meta Box already has a shortcode for displaying the custom field value. Please see more details in the docs.
    • Or using the integration with BB Themer. It has the "Insert" button (close to the "Connect" button), which insert a shortcode to the text/heading module. It acts exactly like a shortcode and you can use it to insert custom field value inline.

    I hope that works for you. If it still doesn't, please let me know.
