Support › MB Frontend Submission › Form not popuplatedResolved
Hi ! Maybe I'm missing or misunderstanding something :
I have a page with a shortcode like this : [mb_frontend_form id="my_meta" post_id="1234"]
The form is displaying well but no data is populated at all, all fields are empty...
Shouldn't they be filled with existing post data with post id 1234 ?
Thanks for your help.
post_id param tells the plugin to pull data from the post with ID = 1234. I made a video on how it works here: https://www.loom.com/share/68cf865579464b43a021a82d2cf08f18.
How did you register the meta box? With code or via Meta Box Builder?
I registered it with code.
You can look it here : https://wordpress-257420-909214.cloudwaysapps.com/test/
It's a test page with only this shortcode : [mb_frontend_form id="firm-info" post_id="536"]
This id is this post : https://wordpress-257420-909214.cloudwaysapps.com/firm/asb-group-czech-republic/
All data in this post has been inputed from the metabox in wp-admin.
The form is displaying well, but no data in it...
If I put the shortcode in the post content, I see infos in custom fields, but for example if I add post_fields="title", the title is empty...
If I put the shortcode in the post content, I see infos in custom fields, but for example if I add post_fields=”title”, the title is empty…
Can you clarify this? I'm not quite clear.
Sorry my explanation was bad...
If I put this shortcode inside the post content (it's a custom post type named firm and post ID is 536) : [mb_frontend_form id="firm-info" post_fields="title"]
Then here's what I got :
As you can see, all my custom fields like Country, Phone, ... are filled but the title is empty.
I've created a Test page with this shortcode : [mb_frontend_form id="firm-info" post_fields="title" post_id="536"]
And here's what I got :
No data at all 🙁
I just can't understand why...
And I think that by default, if post exist then it should make an update of the post. If you don't display title then it creates another post with no title and I think (it's personal 🙂 ) that it should update the current post or the ID provided in the shortcode, or at least add an option in the shortcode for example update="true" for people that just want to offer the client to update a post from the front but don't want them to create new posts...
