I’m probably missing something obvious. Is there a way to set a default state for the checkbox (checked or not)?

Ok, it appeared to be impossible so i jumped in the code.

File: includes/ot-settings.api.php

Line: 475

This…

$options[$id] = trim( $std );

...to this…

if ( is_array($std) )
    $options[$id] = $std;
else
    $options[$id] = trim( $std );

So now you can use the “std” to add the defaults like…

array(
    'id'      => 'multiple_checkbox_example',
    'label'   => 'Multiple Checkbox,
    'desc'    => 'Blah blah blah.',
    'std'     => array(
            0 => 'first',
            2 => 'third'
        ),
    'type'    => 'checkbox',
    'section' => 'section',
    'choices' => array(
        array( 
            'value' => 'first',
            'label' => 'First'
        ),
        array( 
            'value' => 'second',
            'label' => 'Second' 
        ),
        array( 
            'value' => 'third',
            'label' => 'Third' 
        )
    ),
),

For me I use Drop Down Menu for Yes and No to be able to set the default value

Yeah but having multiple checkboxes for something that should be grouped is way more organized then having multiple select inputs each as separate option.

Does OptionTree use the checked() function? http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/checked

@rongcon – Yeah, i know, that’s the HTML basics :) The issue here is handling checkbox default state in OptionsTree theme options framework for WordPress.

I think not (from what i remember when i was looking at the code earlier today). But it doesn’t matter. The issue with the default state can be fixed with the code i posted above. But maybe there’s a reason why checkbox default state isn’t supported, hope to hear from the OptionTree author.

Hello WPScientist,

i used your code tip to can use the “std” to add the defaults values to the checkboxes but the problem now is that you cannot save different values, it keep the “std” value from theme-opion.php file. did that happen and to you?
