I’ve been struggling with this for several days now trying to communicate with the CMB2 authors thinking the “data entry” would be with their program.
1- My first “meta box” – titled “duration” – had merely two fields in it – exactly identical save it be for their names: “begin” and “end” – they are both “text_date:Date Picker” field types; HOWEVER, they are displayed differently on the custom post data entry screen.
Neither have the “repeatable” box checked; but, field 1 has a greyed out “remove” button, a horizontal line, plus a functional “add row” button! What am I supposed to “add” if it’s supposed to be NON-repeatable? Field 2 has neither – it is displayed how I think it is intended to be displayed – a date entry box and no buttons at all.
2- The date picker seems “in my face” all the time – because it’s unusable to me. All my dates so far have been greater than 20 years in the past and even though your date picker does give a few year choices it will NOT scroll backwards (or forwards) to the year I need, so I must hand enter it! I cursor into the entry box to make it active which pops up the unusable picker so I need to get rid of it in order to type in the date. How about giving us a tiny “picker” button to activate it if needed instead of on its own? OR fix the scroll so I can enter dates back in 1960’s etc.
3- I’ve tried and failed to understand what I’m supposed to do to populate the “choices” for the taxonomy radio buttons inline. Users are able to add values to a custom taxonomy so I can’t hard-code buttons with those values as “options” for the buttons or drop-down list – if that’s what I’m supposed to do. How am I to get some sort of drop-down or button list for the available choices of a taxonomy’s values?
4- Where is the code that your plug-in generates from our option-choices located? If I decide to deactivate your plug-in then what about all those post’s entries containing custom fields related to taxonomies? Do they stay around in the database? or how do I retrieve them? Does your plug-in generate usable code for CMB2 that is still available somewhere should I decide that I want to write my own code sometime?
I’m sure I’m missing something somewhere?
