    I have installed the core extension bundle – everything ok. After I have created the first boxes, I can not see this unfortunately on my side. When reading the documentation, I have now determined that I should register something. It seems to me that I have to use php code for it – I am totally blank with PHP code and am very unsure how I should proceed now. . .

    I would be grateful for a little bit of support in this case.

    Thanx a lot

    P.S. I could not install the extension include / exclude. There was a fatal error.

    Hi Lekim,

    If you’re not very familiar with PHP code, you can use the Meta Box Builder to build your meta boxes. It has an intuitive interface for you to create meta boxes and custom fields.

    Can you make a screenshot of the fatal error for me?

    Thanks

    Hi Anh Tran,

    I have the Meta Box Builder. I created a new Custom PostType, created a new page, and created two Meta boxes with different CustomFields. But I can not see this content on the site?!?!?!

    How should I send you the screenshots?!?!

    I thought that with Betabox I can create customer fields, which can then be filled in the backend, but are visible in the frontend. This is what I actually need for my site.
    Creating MetaBoxes works well, but I have two questions:

    A. Is my basic view of what Metabox can do right?
    B. How do I get the customer fields visible in the frontend?

    Need urgent help and tips. . .

    This was the text of the notice with the fatal error:

    Fatal error: Can’t use function return value in write context in /var/customers/webs/fts/wp-content/plugins/meta-box-include-exclude/class-mb-include-exclude.php on line 258

    Hi,

    A. Is my basic view of what Metabox can do right?

    The plugin only does the job of creating meta boxes and custom fields in the admin area. It doesn’t handle the automatic showing the custom fields values in the frontend (because it depends on where you want to show them or how you want to use them).

    I think it’s half of what you want.

    B. How do I get the customer fields visible in the frontend?

    Please follow this documentation: https://metabox.io/docs/get-meta-value/

    This was the text of the notice with the fatal error:

    Can you give me more details on the error?
