Custom Fields
Support Meta Box AIO Use User Profile Data as Default Data for Other MB Custom Fields

  • Creator
  • #32896

    I have custom fields added to the User's profile with Metabox. I'd like to create a new set of custom fields for a CPT, and have the default data for those mapped back to the fields in the user's profile. How can I accomplish this?

    User's Profile:

    Favorite Number = 5


    Favorite Number (Default Data) = [data from user profile favorite number]

    This will allow their "default data" pulled from their profile to be the starting point or default for a field, yet still be editable via the CPT (without overriding the true default stored in their user profile).

    If you have the field number for the user and it has the ID fav_number, then you can use this code to get the user meta and set it as the default value when registering the field number for the post.

    add_filter( 'rwmb_meta_boxes', 'your_prefix_function_name' );
    function your_prefix_function_name( $meta_boxes ) {
        $current_user_id = get_current_user_id();
        $default_number = get_user_meta( $current_user_id, 'fav_number', true );
        $meta_boxes[] = [
            'title'  => __( 'Post Meta', 'your-text-domain' ),
            'id'     => 'post-meta',
            'fields' => [
                    'name'       => __( 'Number', 'your-text-domain' ),
                    'id'         => 'number',
                    'type'       => 'number',
                    'std'        => $default_number
        return $meta_boxes;
