Dynamic fields

You can use many dynamic data inside different blocks. All dynamic fields support retrieving data from current item (so, you can build custom Single and Archive templates) and also data retrieval from definite items. For example, you can get image from other post.

There are two basic types of dynamic fields: Hybrid dynamic and Full dynamic types.

Hybrid dynamic fields

Hybrid dynamic fields are injected into blocks as options. Such blocks continue to be regular editable blocks but you can replace part of content with dynamic data. For example, you can set part of text to be dynamic or replace background image with dynamic URL, etc

Here is list of supported blocks and data in hybrid dynamic blocks

Advanced Text and Advanced Heading block

You can add dynamic part to these blocks and combine them with static area. Supported dynamic data

  1. Custom fields
  2. Taxonomy values (for example you can show post categories or custom taxonomy)
  3. Post data (title, excerpt, date, comment count)
  4. Author data (name, registration date, description, User Meta)
  5. Site data (Site name, site description, current year, current month)
  6. Taxonomy Meta (Taxonomy Meta fields, taxonomy name, taxonomy description)

Dynamic Background Option

Almost All blocks have Background panel. Now, you can attach dynamic image as block background.

This supports next formats

  1. Featured post image
  2. Custom field images (URLs or image ids)
  3. Taxonomy Metas (so you can use it for Taxonomy Templates)

VideoBlock

You can save video URL in your custom field and then, use this value for videoblock URL

Button Block

Supported types:

  1. Post permalink (so, you can insert dynamic link of current or definite post)
  2. Custom field value

Full Dynamic Blocks

Full dynamic blocks have dynamic rendered content. These blocks are using current context so can be used inside Query Loop Builder (but you are not limited).

Meta getter

This is a universal block to get different post data. Supported types

  1. Custom fields
  2. Taxonomy values (for example you can show post categories or custom taxonomy)
  3. Post data (title, excerpt, date, comment count)
  4. Author data (name, registration date, description, User Meta)
  5. Woocommerce data (attributes, attribute links, swatches)
  6. ACF specific fields (image, multi choice fields, repeater fields)
  7. File field (will convert ID of attachment to URL automatically)

Meta getter also has post-processing which allows to use specific data in your fields:

  1. Email field (will be converted to mailto: links)
  2. YYYY-MM-DD and other formats converter to WordPress human readable date
  3. WYSIWYG fields (paragraph and line breaks converter)
  4. Post Link (allows to wrap your values with link to inner post)

  1. I have a ACF that has a text URL in it. I need to wrap this text URL with a tags to make it a link in the output.

    I see you have a “mailto” but I don’t see a textlink. How can I go about formatting the output of this field?

    Thanks a million!

    • Hi. Plugin has dynamic link option in Button block and in Container block. So, you can use Advanced Button block to make links (you can set background color with zero opacity to make button looks like a link)
