    I’m trying to find out how to display label from select advanced custom field for the last couple of hours.

    When I use rwmb_meta() it returns the field’s value, instead of the label.
    But when I use rwmb_the_value() it returns the label with<a>..</a> tag wrapping it.

    Is there any way to display the field without this <a> wrapper in a correct way?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    When using the function rwmb_the_value() to show the value of the field select_advanced, it just shows the list with HTML tag <ul> <li>, not the <a> tag.

    Or you can use the function rwmb_get_field_settings() to get all settings of a field.

    Weird, on my installation it’s always wrap with <a></a>, so I always make a link when displaying the label.

    Could you please share the code that created the field select_advanced and show on the front end? I will take a closer look and give a quick response.

            ),
        );
    
        return $meta_boxes;
    }

    Actually it’s not just select_advanced, but also the one that using select

    if( is_home() && is_front_page() ) {
        // The Query
        $the_query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'dedicated-server', 'posts_per_page' => 1 ) );
    
        // The Loop
        if ( $the_query->have_posts() ) {
           
            while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) {
                
                $the_query->the_post();
    
                $recommend  = rwmb_meta('recommended_63mxmfmup4t');
                
                if($recommend == 1 || $recommend == 'Yes') {
                    ?>
    <?php 
    <!--- other tags ... -->
    
    <h5 class="h5-z5-1"><?php rwmb_the_value('cpu_model_06x5z89bthw');?>
    
    <!--- other tags ... -->
    <?php
    
                }
            }        
        } else {
            // no posts found
        }
        /* Restore original Post Data */
        wp_reset_postdata();
    }
    
    ?>

    Hi,

    Because the type of the field is post so the helper function rwmb_the_value() always returns the title of the post wrapped in the <a> tag to link to the post.

    You can use the function get_the_title() to show only the post title base on the post ID which returned by the helper function rwmb_meta().

    $select_advanced = rwmb_meta( 'cpu_model_06x5z89bthw' );
    echo get_the_title( $select_advanced );

    For more information, please follow the document below.
