Support › Meta Box Columns › How to create columns?
Hi, I've literally just started using metabox (I came to you via the Beaver Builder FB page) and I'm struggling at the first hurdle. What I want to do is set up something that will display like this
Fixed beds: Yes
I've set up the metaboxes no problem, but they are displaying horizontally and I want to display them in 1 column (I'll be connecting them to display in tabs using Beaver Themer)
I've tried following this https://docs.metabox.io/create-columns-in-meta-box-builder/ but it's not working so I'm obviously doing something wrong
PS I've used text lists and I'm wondering if a different field is better suited for this layout instead?
As you're using
text_list, they'll display in a row like this:
All you need to do is using simple text fields for them. Please create 3 text fields for year, berths and fixed beds. And you'll get them in a column.
Hi, thanks for the reply. Is there a more efficient way to do this please? There are 15 items in each list which means that I need to use 45 individual text fields and then add each field individually when I set up the single post layout in Themer. It seems like a long winded way to go about it. Thanks
Also the name of the text field isn't being output at the frontend - just the data that's been added in the CPT. It would be good to be able to attach a screenshot. Thanks
I'm making some improvement to the
text_list field, regarding your suggestion :). What do you think about this layout?
Or do you prefer everything in 1 column, like this?

Wow Anh I'm super impressed by the way that you responded to this. I ended up taking a different route as I just needed to get it done yesterday but thank you. I'm sure I'll need this on another project soon. Thanks, Diane
No problem. Let me know if you need anything else 🙂
