Hospedagem WordPress com plugin Meta Field Block

Onde hospedar o plugin Meta Field Block?

Este plugin pode ser hospedado em qualquer hospedagem que possua WordPress configurado. Recomendamos fortemente utilizar uma hospedagem confiável, com servidores especializados para WordPress, como o serviço de hospedagem de sites da MCO2.

Hospedando o plugin Meta Field Block em um provedor confiável

A MCO2, além de instalar o WordPress na versão mais nova para seus clientes, disponibiliza o plugin WP SafePress, um sistema exclusivo que salvaguarda e melhora seu site simultaneamente.

Por que a Hospedagem WordPress funciona melhor na MCO2?

A Hospedagem WordPress funciona melhor pois a MCO2 possui servidores otimizados para WordPress. A instalação de WordPress é diferente de uma instalação trivial, pois habilita imediatamente recursos como otimização de imagens, proteção da página de login, bloqueio de atividades suspeitas diretamente no firewall, cache avançado e HTTPS ativado por padrão. São plugins que potencializam seu WordPress para a máxima segurança e o máximo desempenho.

This single-block plugin allows you to display a meta field or a custom field as a block on the front end. It supports custom fields for posts, terms, and users. It can be nested inside a parent block that has postId and postType context, such as Query Block, or used as a stand-alone block.

You can display any field whose value can be retrieved by the core API (get_post_meta, get_term_meta, get_user_meta) and is a string or can be converted to a string. To display the field value in the Block Editor, it has to be accessible via the REST API or have the field type set to dynamic.

You can also display custom fields created by the Advanced Custom Fields plugin explicitly. It supports all ACF field types whose values are strings or can be converted to strings. Some other complex fields such as Image, Link, Page Link, True False, Checkbox, Select, Radio, Button Group, Taxonomy, User, Post Object and Relationship field types are also supported in basic formats.

This plugin also provides developer-friendly hook APIs that allow you to easily customize the output of the block, display complex data type fields, or use the block as a placeholder to display any kind of content with object_id and object_type as context parameters.

An edge case where this block is really helpful is when you need to get the correct post_id in your shortcode when you use it in a Query Loop. In that case, you can set the field type as dynamic and input your shortcode in the field name. The block will display it correctly on both the front end and the editor. Alternatively, if you only want to see the preview of your shortcode in the editor, you can also use this block as a better version of the core/shortcode.

What is the HTML output of a custom field?

The HTML output of a custom field on the front end depends on the context of the field. It uses one of these core API functions to get the field value: get_post_meta, get_term_meta, get_user_meta.

What is the HTML output of ACF fields?

  1. All basic field types that return strings or can cast to strings are supported – The HTML output is from the get_field function.

  2. Link type – The HTML output is:

    <a href={url} target={target} rel="noreferrer noopener">{title}</a>
    

    There is no rel attribute if the target is not _blank

  3. Image type – The HTML output is from the wp_get_attachment_image function. The image size is from the Preview Size setting.

  4. True / False type – The HML output is Yes if the value is true, and No if the value is false. Below is the code snippet to change these text values:

    add_filter( 'meta_field_block_acf_field_true_false_on_text', function ( $on_text, $field, $post_id, $value ) {
      return 'Yep';
    }, 10, 4 );
    
    add_filter( 'meta_field_block_acf_field_true_false_off_text', function ( $off_text, $field, $post_id, $value ) {
      return 'Noop';
    }, 10, 4 );
    
  5. Checkbox / Select type – The HTML output is:

    <span class="value-item">{item_value}</span>, <span class="value-item">{item_value}</span>
    

    The item_value can be either value or label, depending on the return format of the field. Multiple selected values are separated by ,. Below is the code snippet to change the separator:

    add_filter( 'meta_field_block_acf_field_choice_item_separator', function ( $separator, $value, $field, $post_id ) {
      return ' | ';
    }, 10, 4 );
    
  6. Radio button / Button group type – The HTML output can be either value or label, depending on the return format of the field.

  7. Page link type, Post object type – The HTML output for a single-value field is:

    <a class="post-link" href={url} rel="bookmark">{title}</a>
    

    For a multiple-value field is:

    <ul>
      <li><a class="post-link" href={url} rel="bookmark">{title}</a></li>
      <li><a class="post-link" href={url} rel="bookmark">{title}</a></li>
    </ul>
    
  8. Relationship type – The HTML output is:

    <ul>
      <li><a class="post-link" href={url} rel="bookmark">{title}</a></li>
      <li><a class="post-link" href={url} rel="bookmark">{title}</a></li>
    </ul>
    
  9. Taxonomy type – The HTML output is:

    <ul>
      <li><a class="term-link" href={term_url}>{term_name}</a></li>
      <li><a class="term-link" href={term_url}>{term_name}</a></li>
    </ul>
    
  10. User type – The HTML output for a single-value field is:

    <a class="user-link" href={author_url}>{display_name}</a>
    

    For a multiple-value field is:

    <ul>
      <li><a class="user-link" href={author_url}>{display_name}</a></li>
      <li><a class="user-link" href={author_url}>{display_name}</a></li>
    </ul>
    
  11. For other complex field types, you can generate a custom HTML output by using the hook:

    apply_filters( 'meta_field_block_get_acf_field', $field_value, $post_id, $field, $raw_value, $object_type )
    

    Or by using the general hook:

    apply_filters( 'meta_field_block_get_block_content', $content, $attributes, $block, $object_id, $object_type )
    

Copy & paste snippets

When using the meta_field_block_get_block_content hook to customize block content, we recommend selecting dynamic as the field type. This way, both the front end and the editor will show the changes. If you are working with ACF Fields, we suggest using the meta_field_block_get_acf_field hook to modify the field content.

  1. How to change the HTML output of the block?
    Using the meta_field_block_get_block_content hook:

    add_filter( 'meta_field_block_get_block_content', function ( $block_content, $attributes, $block, $post_id, $object_type ) {
      $field_name = $attributes['fieldName'] ?? '';
    
      if ( 'your_unique_field_name' === $field_name ) {
        $block_content = 'new content';
      }
    
      return $block_content;
    }, 10, 5);
    

    Using the meta_field_block_get_acf_field hook for ACF Fields only:

    add_filter( 'meta_field_block_get_acf_field', function ( $block_content, $post_id, $field, $raw_value, $object_type ) {
      $field_name = $field['name'] ?? '';
    
      if ( 'your_unique_field_name' === $field_name ) {
        $block_content = 'new content';
      }
    
      return $block_content;
    }, 10, 5);
    

    This basic snippet is very powerful. You can use it to display any fields from any posts, terms, users or setting fields. Please see the details in the below use cases.

  2. How to wrap the block with a link to the post within the Query Loop?
    Using the meta_field_block_get_block_content hook:

    add_filter( 'meta_field_block_get_block_content', function ( $block_content, $attributes, $block, $post_id ) {
      $field_name = $attributes['fieldName'] ?? '';
    
      if ( 'your_unique_field_name' === $field_name && $block_content !== '' ) {
        $block_content = sprintf('<a href="#">%2$s</a>', get_permalink($post_id), $block_content);
      }
    
      return $block_content;
    }, 10, 4);
    

    Using the meta_field_block_get_acf_field hook for ACF Fields only:

    add_filter( 'meta_field_block_get_acf_field', function ( $block_content, $post_id, $field, $raw_value ) {
      $field_name = $field['name'] ?? '';
    
      if ( 'your_unique_field_name' === $field_name && $block_content !== '' ) {
        $block_content = sprintf('<a href="#">%2$s</a>', get_permalink($post_id), $block_content);
      }
    
      return $block_content;
    }, 10, 4);
    

    This snippet only works with the block that has only HTML inline tags or an image.

  3. How to display an image URL field as an image tag?
    Using the meta_field_block_get_block_content hook:

    add_filter( 'meta_field_block_get_block_content', function ( $block_content, $attributes, $block, $post_id ) {
      $field_name = $attributes['fieldName'] ?? '';
    
      if ( 'your_image_url_field_name' === $field_name && wp_http_validate_url($block_content) ) {
        $block_content = sprintf('<img src="%1$s" alt="your_image_url_field_name" />', esc_attr($block_content));
      }
    
      return $block_content;
    }, 10, 4);
    

    Using the meta_field_block_get_acf_field hook for ACF Fields only:

    add_filter( 'meta_field_block_get_acf_field', function ( $block_content, $post_id, $field, $raw_value ) {
      $field_name = $field['name'] ?? '';
    
      if ( 'your_image_url_field_name' === $field_name && wp_http_validate_url($block_content) ) {
        $block_content = sprintf('<img src="%1$s" alt="your_image_url_field_name" />', esc_attr($block_content));
      }
    
      return $block_content;
    }, 10, 4);
    
  4. How to display multiple meta fields in a block?
    For example, we need to display the full name of a user from two meta fields first_name and last_name.

    add_filter( 'meta_field_block_get_block_content', function ( $block_content, $attributes, $block, $post_id ) {
      $field_name = $attributes['fieldName'] ?? '';
    
      if ( 'full_name' === $field_name ) {
        $first_name = get_post_meta( $post_id, 'first_name', true );
        $last_name  = get_post_meta( $post_id, 'last_name', true );
    
        // If the meta fields are ACF Fields. The code will be:
        // $first_name = get_field( 'first_name', $post_id );
        // $last_name  = get_field( 'last_name', $post_id );
    
        $block_content = trim("$first_name $last_name");
      }
    
      return $block_content;
    }, 10, 4);
    

    Choose the field type as dynamic and input the field name as full_name.

  5. How to display a setting field?
    For example, we need to display a setting field named footer_credit on the footer template part of the site.

    add_filter( 'meta_field_block_get_block_content', function ( $block_content, $attributes, $block, $post_id ) {
      $field_name = $attributes['fieldName'] ?? '';
    
      // Replace `footer_credit` with your unique name.
      if ( 'footer_credit' === $field_name ) {
        $block_content = get_option( 'footer_credit', '' );
    
        // If the field is an ACF Field. The code will be:
        // $block_content = get_field( 'footer_credit', 'option' );
      }
    
      return $block_content;
    }, 10, 4);
