Support › MB Elementor Integrator › Are sortable, cloneable groups with cloneable fields supported yet?
Hi guys, I was a Dynoments user which let you use elementor to style sections with cloneable (repeater) fields with in them AND add multiple sections which were also cloneable and sortable to a single CPT.
Is this possible with MetaBox and the elementor integrator yet?
I have made you this very short video to better explain what I am trying to achieve.
The cloneable group is working with Elementor in the new update. Please follow this guide to get more details
Hi Long, thanks for the reply. Sorry, but M I missing something in that video link you supplied?
I have the site (see my video) doing exactly that already.
The question is how to have multiple, cloneable and sortable sections (groups) on a single CPT?
The video you shared shows how to do a single group, but not multiple groups which are also sortable in the page like Dynoments (now obsolete) allowed for with ACF flexible content and repeating fields.
I hope that makes sense and my apologies if I'm using the wrong terminology which is why I did the video as well.
The demo video above is a case with a cloneable group and I see it works as your expectation in your video. You can also make the group sortable to sort the clone on the frontend as well.
Let me know if it does not work on your end.
Hi Long - thanks for the reply. I've tried and tried and tried but it doesn't seem to do what I want it to do which is to be able to move SECTIONS up and down a page.
I've done you another video to show what I mean, however, I have also spotted an error while shooting the video in that the repeating fields no longer seem to be sortable?
Sorry for the late reply. I've checked the sortable feature of the cloneable group to display in the Elementor page builder and not seen any issue with this. Here is the screen record https://imgur.com/bm0rgXZ
Regarding the cloneable field, you can sort fields in a group/clone only. It is not possible to sort (drag and drop) them between other groups/clones.
No worries, and thank you for taking the time to do the video.
I CAN already get the plugin to do the functionality you are showing, however, that is not the question I am asking.
In your example, I would like to be able to add MULTIPLE, differently designed sections to a page and be able to sort them. In you example and the YouTube video, they are only using a single design and group.
I've done you another very short video, using your example to hopefully try to better explain what I am trying to do with the plug-in.
Here is the link to the video - LINK - and again, thank you for your patience.
You can just create different templates (Meta Box Group skins) for different groups then add them to the Elementor page builder and sort the Elementor section easily. Our plugin helps the Elementor (Pro) to get the subfield values in a group or cloneable group.
