    Hi,
    I am trying to create custom fields for child pages of a specific page, but in the condition box, when I select Parent Post, the dropdown only shows a dozen of pages available, when there are more than 50.
    Am I missing anything necessary to make this work?

    The pages are built with Elementor and I am using Metabox AIO and the Elementor integration is enabled.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    In the Builder, the dropdown only supports showing 10 items for better optimization. But you can type to the box to find the page as well.

    Hi Long,

    Thanks for the reply. I have tried typing before and tried again after your response and still only shows me the same 10 items.

    Hi,

    Please try to deactivate other plugins except Meta Box plugins to isolate the problem, then share some screenshots on your end.

    I had done that previously as well to make sure it wasn't a plugin incompatibility.
    Just tried again on a staging site and took the screenshots. Where do you want me to share them?

    Hi Long,

    Sorry.. I was thinking about images rather than a video and couldn't see any image attachment available.

    But here is the link to the screenshot:

    Hi,

    Can you please move some pages with the title "Air ..." to trash and search for the "Electrical Services" page again? If it still does not work, please share your site credentials via this contact form https://metabox.io/contact/, I will help you to check the issue.

    Hi Long,

    I had to move 15 pages to trash until the page I am trying to target gets in the first 10 pages, so it shows in the dropdown list.
    Typing still didn't work.
    I am sending you the credential, as I am planning to create more fields for other pages and it would be great if you could help me sort this.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    We use the default WP search, which searches by title and content, which causes this confusion. I've just updated Meta Box to search for title only, so the result is more accurate.
