    Is there a way to place the label for a field beside the input? I can achieve this when creating the fields via Meta Box Template, but not in the builder.

    Hi Rick,

    Label is always besides input. It’s the default behavior and there’s no options to change it. Perhaps I misunderstood. Can you give an example in Meta Box Template vs Meta Box Builder?

    Hey Anh,

    If I create a field using the building, when I go to edit a post the label displays on top of the field, but if I create the same field using a template, when I edit the post the label is besides the field which is much more compact.

    Hi Rick,

    Can you please take a screenshot of the field in the Builder and screenshot of the edit screen? I couldn’t replicate it.

    I can’t seem to add images, it won’t let me post.


    Does this comment not accept links? It just removed the comment I had jsut submitted

    Could it be related to the columns addon? I had accidentally set a col and then since there is no way to unselect an options I set it to 12, which I was the same as default.

    That’s right. When columns are set, the label is automatically displayed above the input, to prevents the layout break.

    I’ll check the Builder to fix the issue with selection.

    Ok thanks. That makes sense then.
    Yeah, as long as you could deselect a col it would be great.

    Just to confirm I mean a single metabox in a field group was temporarily set with a column, and there was no way to remove it so I set it to 12. After that all meta boxes in that field group have labels on top.

    It’s just cosmetic, so not urgent, but looking forward to the ability to delselect the col.

    Thanks again for the help!
