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?
Justin Sternberg
Hmm regarding issue, probably best to open a thread on the support forums: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/cmb2/
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
Justin Sternberg
Sounds like you may be having issues with the javascript. The wysiwyg fields should work fine when re-ordering.
Hi. Can I use CMB2 in my free/freemium plugin that will be posted on wordpress.org?

'class' => 'sguide',
'object_types' => array( 'static_block'),
'field_type' => 'taxonomy_select',
'placeholder' => 'Select a Size',
'query_args' => array(
'post_status' => 'publish',
'posts_per_page' => - 1,
not create filed in product page

Hello! Does anybody knows if the documentation shows how the metadata is stored on the database? Im doing an external REST API that connects to the wordpress database and I want to understand how the fields from each metabox that I created are stored. Thanks!
"Metabox configuration is required to have an ID parameter." getting this issue on subdomain in multisite setup. On Main domain cmb2 form works fine.
Does anybody has solution regarding above issue? Thanks in Advance!
Justin Sternberg
You'll have to provide more information about your setup. Probably best to open a support thread: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/cmb2/

Hi, when installing a wp theme, it gives me the following error: "Failed opening required 'vendor / CMB2 / init.php"
I saw that the init.php file in the folder doesn't exist. What should I do? Create an empty file "init.php"?

@NicHagane that sounds like a switch_to_blog error. Where some plugin/theme used that function but didn’t restore the previous blog
@emilianonatella that sounds like an issue with the theme. Did you contact the theme author?

is it possible to create admin theme option with CMB2? Please help
hello i active plugin repo but not display in pages..
Hi there, I am trying to create a taxonomy term field group for CPT "recipe" and taxonomy "category", but I can't seem to figure it out. I noticed I have to set 'object_types', but can I set it to have 2 conditions, CPT and taxonomy? Thanks!

function example_cb() {
$cmb_rest = new_cmb2_box( array(
'id' => 'yourprefix_demo_metabox',
'title' => esc_html__( 'Test Metabox', 'cmb2' ),
'object_types' => array( 'post', 'term' ), // Post type
'taxonomies' => array( 'category' ),
) );

$cmb_rest->add_field( array(
    'name'       => esc_html__( 'Test', 'pluginname' ),
    'id'         => 'test',
    'type'       => 'text',
) );

add_action( 'cmb2_admin_init', 'example_cb' );

Thank you, but that adds the field to all the CPT's that have the taxonomy "category". I only want to add the fields to the "recipe" taxonomy.
Justin Sternberg
above, you said you have a CPT "recipe", but now you're saying "recipe" taxonomy. Can you explain more clearly?
to only show on term-edit for "recipe" taxonomy:
function example_cb() {
    $cmb = new_cmb2_box( array(
        'id'           => 'yourprefix_demo_metabox',
        'title'        => esc_html__( 'Test Metabox', 'cmb2' ),
        'object_types' => array( 'term' ), // Post type
        'taxonomies'   => array( 'recipe' ),
    ) );
    $cmb->add_field( array(
        'name'       => esc_html__( 'Test', 'pluginname' ),
        'id'         => 'test',
        'type'       => 'text',
    ) );
add_action( 'cmb2_admin_init', 'example_cb' );
