I guess that you have heard or even used the Flexible Content Field from Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) plugin. Haven’t you? If you are looking for ways to create it but don’t want to use ACF, follow this post. I will guide you to create one kind of ACF Flexible Content Field, but using Meta Box plugin to do.
The previous post has shown us how to create and work with a simple group. Nonetheless, much of your time will be squandered on creating every single group / field manually if a number of repeated groups / custom fields are repeated on a continuous basis. Therefore, a tool that can help you automatically clone them will be of great necessity.
Instead of copying the code of custom fields and embedding it into a website, the export and import features we’re going to talk about in this post will help you to do that without touching the code. This method has the same advantages: synchronizing custom fields between sites, easy back up, and saving the setup time. But, there is a difference. If you don’t know where to embed, edit, or save code as instructed in the previous post, this method can help you to do them all.
Bunching custom fields aim to rearrange the related custom fields into one group. For instance, one group of contact information contains related custom fields such as name, phone number, address and email. Grouping may make the custom fields look better and more logical when they display. In addition, it brings some other benefits of organizing data afterward.
There is one more nice week with our great upgrade of extensions. We’ve tried to make the plugin more and more powerful and flexible to use, so follow up our updates to get full of Meta Box’s power. Now, let’s see what we did last week!
