I recently asked on this forum how to create a beta box using custom field, which was answered but with a not so right answer, but it helped me.

For example, there's a custom field that I use called - the-field. I want to add a simple meta box (textbox) to my post editor which will set the value of my custom field from that meta box, not its own value.

Is there any way to do that?

  • Nope. Something like a Excerpt box that we see in our post editor. – Hardeep Asrani Feb 21 '14 at 6:32
  • Uhm, that’s what the linked answer does. – fuxia Feb 21 '14 at 11:22
  • Yup, it does but for shortcode, not custom field. – Hardeep Asrani Feb 22 '14 at 12:25
  • Nope, it stores the content in a custom field. Making the field’s content accessible per shortcode is completely unrelated. – fuxia Feb 22 '14 at 12:45
