Hi, I need to use a custom field as HTML attribute. I'll try to explane:
I have a post with a color picker custom field. I want to use the output of this custom field as a backgrounfd color for a <div> element inside View plugin.
If i write something as:

<div style="background-color: [wpv-post-field name=??box-color??]">

it doesn't work. Can you help me please?

Same problem if I'd like to use the post link as target of the HTML <a> attribute.

Hello and thank you for contacting Toolset support.

You should use types shortcode to get value of your custom field.
For example:

[types field="url"][/types]

Please refer following link for types API:

I'd like to use the post link as target of the HTML <a> attribute.
=> For this you should use shortcode [wpv-post-url].

Please refer following link for more information:


Thanks a lot! Now it works!
