[Resolved] Transferring Old Views Template to Blocks

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

The user would like to port a legacy view into blocks. And he would like to display assigned taxonomy terms for the post.

Currently, Toolset Blocks cannot display dynamically terms data similar to how it displays post fields. To work around it we can use a "Classic" or "Fields and Text" and use the [wpv-post-taxonomy].

Tell us what you are trying to do?

I am trying to transfer my old Views template into the new Blocks. One issue that comes up is that the shortcode that is being picked up by the Dynamic options [yith_wcmv_vendor_name show_by="vendor" value="0" type="link"] has no value there..where is the data for this short code?

On the other hand, the old Views template (screenshot attached) shows another shortcode with the field that I actually need [wpv-post-taxonomy type="yith_shop_vendor"]

What is the difference between the 2 different short codes and how can I make the dynamic text pick up the one I need?

Is there any documentation that you are following?  

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site? hidden link

Hello and thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

YITH vendors are a taxonomy not a custom field. You cannot get a taxonomy term with the blocks' user interface (dynamic field).

Currently, there is no Toolset Block to display the taxonomies terms of a post. The workaround is to fall back to legacy views by using a "Classic" or "Fields and Text" and use the [wpv-post-taxonomy].

[yith_wcmv_vendor_name show_by="vendor" value="0" type="link"] shortcode is not a Toolset shortcode, check its documentation here hidden link


My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
