    Hi Greg,

    I have detected a small bug (?) in using custom meta in the form renderer.
    I have created a new meta for ads called “wpa_brand”. One option could be inserted among a long list of brands thanks to “adverts_field_select” form renderer.
    But this meta is added to any new post (page, product, ad…) in WP.
    I don’t know why but it seems that “callback_save” => “adverts_save_multi” and “callback_bind” => “adverts_bind_multi” are triggered for any post (used for adverts_field_select, adverts_field_checkbox and adverts_field_account).
    I have added an if condition to exit the callback if the post has not an ‘advert’ type but I’d like to know why such behavior ?

    Many thanks for your feedback.

    if i understand correctly only the wpa_brand meta is being added to all of the post types?

    Also, can you paste here the code you are using to add the custom field and save it?

    Hello Greg,

    Thanks for your feedback. Here is the code to add and save the meta field in the WPAdverts form.

    add_filter( “adverts_form_load”, “customize_adverts_add” );
    function customize_adverts_add( $form ) {
    if( $form[‘name’] != “advert” ) {
    return $form;
    // List of brands
    $args = array( ‘hide_empty’ => false, ‘fields’ => ‘tt_ids’,’orderby’ => ‘name’ );
    $brands = yith_wcbr_get_terms(‘yith_product_brand’, $args);
    $brand_name_temp = array();
    $array_init[0] = array(“value” => “0”, “text” => __(“Other”,”adverts”));
    foreach ($brands as $key => $brand_id) {
    $brand = get_term($brand_id);
    $brand_name_temp[] = array(“value” => $brand_id, “text” => $brand->name);
    $brand_name = array_merge ($array_init, $brand_name_temp);

    //Edit WPAdvert form
    $form[“field”][] = array(
    “name” => “wpa_brand”,
    “type” => “adverts_field_select”,
    “order” => 11,
    “label” => __(“Brand”, “adverts”),
    “is_required” => false,
    “validator” => array( array( “name” => “is_required” )),
    “empty_option” => false,
    “max_choices” => 1,
    “options” => $brand_name,
    return $form;

    Thanks, it seems like there is some kind of bug, please try opening a file wpadverts/includes/adverts-post-type.php go to line about 49, replace the line

    if ( !$post->post_type == 'advert' ) {


    if ( $post->post_type != 'advert' ) {

    and see if it helps?

    Hello Greg,

    Correction seems to work. I have made several tests and there is no extra meta added to post other than advert.

    Thanks !
