Overview

To display field value on the website, besides the helper functions, the Meta Box plugin provides a simple shortcode [rwmb_meta] to help users show the value in the post content or widget text without opening theme files and inserting PHP code.

[rwmb_meta meta_key="field_id" post_id="15" ...]

Attributes

Attribute Description
meta_key The meta key, same as field ID. Required.
post_id The post ID. Optional. If not defined, then the current post ID is used.

This shortcode works exactly like rwmb_the_value() function with the same parameters.

If you pass other attributes to the shortcode, those attributes will be passed to rwmb_the_value() function as the 2nd parameter.
