    Hi Harness,

    Thank you for using our plugin.

    It looks like the plugin wpDataTables search in the database, table wp_postmeta for the meta key (field ID) to create a table/chart. There is no data in the table wp_postmeta when you just create meta boxes and custom fields, please try to add field value to some posts then update the post and re-check it.

    Thanks, Long. I already have 990 posts in that CPT, so there's plenty of values in the custom fields. 🙂

    Hi,

    On my local site, the meta key (field ID) shows as well when creating a table. Screenshots

    So I recommend contacting plugin wpDataTables support to ask for help in this case.

    Thank you for all your troubleshooting! I really appreciate your efforts to help me, which proves why Meta Box is a great investment. 🙂

    If you were to create a datatable using MB Views without wpDataTables, do you have any thoughts on a good way to set that up? Is there a particular table or charting library that you would use and how would you configure that for use in MB Views?

    Hi,

    I have not used a data table plugin before. If you familiar with coding, it's not complicated to create a table with a WordPress query and HTML tag <table>. You can also follow this article to get a table plugin https://kinsta.com/blog/wordpress-table-plugins/.
