Hi, I want to ask a question about the metaboxes repeatable field. I see that the Custom-Metaboxes-and-Fields-for-WordPress from WebDevStudios is pretty popular but it’s support for repeater fields is a little lacking.

So what are you using to create such field, is there a better script, or a tutorial? I’ll be very happy if you share some wisdom with me. Thanks in advance! :)

What are you trying to do? There’s a few little tricks in there, but it’s definitely a little limited at the moment.

I’m trying to create a slider metabox in page template with add image field and textbox for the caption.

Is there a way?

( I’ve always been impressed by your portfolio btw, great works! )

Thanks :)

So you can use the file_list metabox type for this, and then you can grab an attachment ID from the array of URLs using this:

http://frankiejarrett.com/get-an-attachment-id-by-url-in-wordpress/

Then your users can add captions / descriptions in the media gallery which you grab by ID and display appropriately.

You’re right though, this is definitely the weak area of the framework at the moment.

Cheers

@TommusRhodus Oh , that’s an idea, thank you :)

And one more question – is it possible to create a group of three textboxes/text-inputs that is repeatable?

@mountainthemes I’ve also thought about using this. I want to explore all my options and see what is the best for the current project.

Repeatable text inputs, provided the 3 are connected you can just use 3 repeatable fields with a note that they tie in together, then you can just pull and clean the arrays for empty entries and use foreach and a key value to grab values from all 3 arrays :)

@TommusRhodus This is interesting way. Have you used it in a theme? What is the clients feedback?

@dnp_theme This Vafpress framework looks bery promising.. I’ll take a look at it. How does it compare to Redux?

And on the question of repeatable fields:

What is the best way to create a repeatable text field group in a widget?
