Support › Meta Box - Beaver Themer Integrator › Date field connection shows 1970 when no date is set
When the field is blank in the post settings, the output should also be blank. Currently, if no date is set in the post, January 1 1970 is used on the front end.
It seems to force the display of the date if a format is set in the field connection or shortcode. If no custom format is set, then the output is blank, as it should be.
Please try to use the helper shortcode [rwmb_meta]. I do not see that issue on my end.
Using the shortcode outputs Jan 1 1970 if you set a format for the date and the date field is empty.
Can you please share a screen record of this issue? Did you try to add the shortcode in the post content (without any page builder)?
It looks like the standard feature of Beaver to return a standard date (Unix epoch) when there is empty data. If you use the helper shortcode [rwmb_meta id="event_date"] without the builder, it does not show the standard date like that.
Well, Beaver Builder doesn't know it's a date or do any formatting. That's totally on Meta Box. So you probably want to fix your integration to work correctly.
Thanks for your suggestion.
I will inform the development team to check the integration and fix it in the next update.
