@raymacz_twitter I am pretty sure there is no point and click for engaging with cmb2. When you add new meta boxes you explicitly define where you want them to appear (in the code).

I am using an image field in an options page, but in the dashboard, after saving the image, the thumbnail does not show, I have narrowed down the issue to the image not being displayed using https, once I ad the "s" using inspector, the image thumbnail loads fine in the dashboard, anyway to force cmb2 to use https to display thumbnails in the dashboard for the image field or to have it load as a relative path?
Hi, can anybody give me pointers on how to include cmb2 in a plugin via composer. I have required it through composer but I'm not sure how to include it. Thanks.
Hi @Develon674 -- I just did this yesterday so I can speak to it a bit. As far as including it, I just added a require_once to init.php
lemme throw up a Gist and I can show you how I configured it
Hey Chris, I actually went about it differently in the end. I added the cmb2 folder in the "vendor" directory to the classlist in the composer.json and then ran "composer dump-autoload". This then allows me to use the different classes with namespacing, which is great for me as I use dependency injection. To initalize CMB2, I just call on the bootstrap class (init.php) and then use the initalize public method. Thanks for the gist as it gave me a good starting point!
Glad it was helpful :)

Hi - can someone point me to how best to use CMB2 within a plugin settings page?
It's all installed and working ok, but if I have a settings page within my plugin, what's best way of showing CMB2 fields?
Hey @m1ke_ellis_twitter I recently was looking at this, too. There are docs for creating your own settings page with CMB2, which is the easiest, but I couldn't figure out a good way to use CMB2 fields in existing settings pages or sections because of when CMB2 is loaded vs. when other parts of admin menu pages are loaded. It's possible that @jtsternberg knows of a specific way to hook CMB2 fields in an existing page but the fastest/easiest option is to roll your own. https://github.com/CMB2/CMB2-Snippet-Library/blob/master/options-and-settings-pages/options-pages-with-submenus.php
@jazzsequence thanks! I got it working but am saving the metadata into a random post - probably a terrible idea but I went with a super-high ID and it's only for a prototype anyway so hopefully should be ok!
@m1ke_ellis_twitter post your code somewhere and we can potentially review. Preferably a gust or something with a bit more context.
hey I'm beginner, I use options-pages-with-tabs-and-submenus.php but I don't know how to show my options in my template. "myprefix_get_option( 'field Id' )." dose not work for me
Is this chat still active?
I just wanna activate the google map for my testing server
I have already created API key from google
and added to the field in the cmb2
but it still shows the developer watermark and it won't save the address
can somebody help on this please
CMB2 doesn’t have a map field, so you’ll have to ask the author of the plugin.
Hi, it is possible to add group of group fields?
Do you have full example of how to do custom fields inside a group field + repeatable + save data correctly?
Hi everyone, I'm having an issue with the repeatable groups not sorting correctly and I was wondering if anyone could help me? I'd also like to be able to drag and drop the repeatable groups, I see there's a PR open for this already. Is there anything I can do to help with that?
regarding the PR, the best thing you can do is to test test test it!

I have been doing some more debugging today and I noticed the repeatable fields are in fact being reordered correctly. However if the WYSIWYG fields are set to visual they are not reordered with the rest of the group which causes quite a mix up of content. I have looked around and found an issue somewhat related to this which has been fixed already. I've just updated the plugin version and it's working :D
Hopefully I can find some time to assist with testing the PR
Hi. Can I use CMB2 in my free/freemium plugin that will be posted on wordpress.org?
