    Hello;

    Let me admit upfront that I am not a developer. I can usually get by if I can cut & paste. And it may be that the product is too much for me.

    I’ve created Custom Fields using MB Builder. The Custom Fields are set under Posts.

    If I use Elemenator Theme Builder, with an archive template, I can get the custom fields to display. That is good.

    If I use Elemenator Theme Builder, I can build a template using dynamic tags. With the Preview Dynamic Content set for 1 of the Custom Posts, I can see the data. But when I change the Preview Dynamic Content to All, I get nothing.

    This is, as an example, what I am trying to accomplish. We have a number of employees. The data for each employee is used in multiple templates on multiple pages.

    I love what I have been able to do with your plugin. I simply frustrated by what I am not able to do.

    Thanks

    Hi William,

    Currently, the Elementor page builder only supports to show the custom fields in the single post, not in the list posts. You can try to use the plugin Elementor Custom Skin, it will help you design a loop item just like a single template and it would be used as a skin so you can be able to show custom fields on each post in the list.

    Refer to this topic https://metabox.io/support/topic/elementor-custom-post-type-grid-on-pages/.

    Hello Long;

    Thank you for that information. I’ve purchased a license for Elementor Custom Skin. It looks like it will get us where we want to go,

    We will still be using Meta Box for the custom fields, post types, etc.

    We have Meta Box and Meta Box Elementor Integrator running on a multisite environment. We purchased the AIO level and have installed it also. But whenever we activate the AIO plugin, we immediately start to have issues on the 1 site that we have up and running at this time.

    We Network Activate the AIO plugin. Then we go to the Dashboard of the 1 site. When we try to edit anything with Elementor, we get to the point where the Elementor Editor starts to load. But then the circle just goes round and round forever. The moment that we Network Deactivate the AIO plugin, it all works fine.

    We thought that we had followed the installation and setup instructions. Any ideas about what we can do to get the issue resolved?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Thank you for your report. Please help me to deactivate all plugins except Meta Box, Meta Box AIO, Elementor, Elementor Pro, Elementor Custom Skin (I’m using the free version) then check the issue again. If it still happens, please turn on debug and open the Console tab of the browser then let me know if there are error messages.

    Well, that worked. I deactivated the plugins as you instructed. It loaded and I could edit pages, templates and Theme Builder.

    I then activated the deactivated plugins one at a time and tested access for each individual activation.

    All of the plugins are activated and everything seems to be working.

    Elementor knows that you are on the job so it decided to work correctly.

    As long as I am asking questions, when I use data from the custom data fields, if there is a single data entry field – like a title – then the data is retrieved fine. If there is multiple data entries, like a Category field, when I retrieve the data on the front end, it comes in with the

    <

    ul> bulleted list as in the attached image.

    Once we use the dynamic tag to get the data, there is no way to change the text editor to not be a bulleted list. What can I change to get rid of the bullets and padding?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You can try to add the custom CSS class for the widget, see my screenshot https://share.getcloudapp.com/E0uzWzKz.

    Then use this custom CSS code to remove the bullet and reduce the line-height.

    .custom-class ul {
        list-style-type: none;
    }
    
    .custom-class ul li {
        line-height: 1.2
    }

    As a follow-up:

    The custom CSS worked perfectly.

    Based on your advice, I purchased the Ele Custom Skin plugin. It gets me where I need to go. It is very easy to use and allows even a person with no programming skills the ability to easily and effectively use the data from Meta Box. Thank you for that suggestion.

    You guys have terrific support. Thank you.
