I'd like to suggest that Toolset create a Beaver Themer add-on plugin similar to what Pods has created. This would allow for connectivity between Types multiple image custom fields and Beaver Builder image gallery output modules. Most Types custom fields work well with BB, but the image custom fields do not.
Here is Beaver Builders response when I asked them about connectivity with Types custom fields...
Thank you for contacting Beaver Builder.
As far as I am aware Beaver Themer is already compatible with Toolset custom fields. You can learn more in the link below. 🙂
In regards to integration similar to Advanced Custom Fields and Pods, the Pods development team added integration themselves with their Beaver Themer add-on plugin which I've linked below. I will mention this to our developers, but I believe this is something the Toolset development team would need to, similar to what the Pods dev team did. 🙂
We do not anymore create AddOns to integrate other Themes.
Toolset is fully compatible with any theme - but from now on, you cannot edit anymore the whole template, instead, only the_content(), unless you use Custom Coding.
We even obsoleted (this is an ongoing process) the already existing Integration Plugins with DIVI, AVADA, and so on, becuase layouts is now compatible with any theme, when it comes to edit the_content().
More powerful integration has to be dpone with Custom Code.
Most Types custom fields work well with BB, but the image custom fields do not.
Please can you elaborate the exact steps I need to take to see the issue?
It seems rather a BUG or compatibility conflict, and I would like to solve it, instead of just produce a generic integration, since all works great already, it seems this is an exception that we can handle.
It appears that nearly all Types custom fields work within Beaver Themer modules, with the exception of Types repeating image custom fields. Single image fields will connect with BB modules, but they do not work when set to repeating.
The steps within a Beaver Themer Single Post Theme Layout are:
- select: add content
- choose: "attached image" or "gallery" modules
- under General Setting > Photo setting choose: Post Custom Field > Connect
- enter Types repeating image custom field key
I would be great if you're team could figure out how to connect Types repeating image fields, or resolve the BUG.
If you discover that this kind of Types field is not compatible, then I guess this is somewhat related to my other support thread: https://toolset.com/forums/topic/development-roadmap/ I wish there was a Types gallery custom field (multiple image upload) that offered greater functionality and/or better integration with native WP media library, which most 3rd party gallery plugins use.
Attached are some screen grabs of a BB "attached images" module, as well as a "gallery" module. Types repeating image custom fields do not work when entered in the "post custom field" input area.
I seem to need a paid copy of the mentioned theme if you refer to this one: hidden link
Please share it with me, using Google Drive.
Zip the Theme and share the link with me, the setting can be "Share with anyone who has this link".
I will enable a Private Reply so only you and me, can see it
Then, I can make the needed tests and we can help you solve the issue ASAP.
We will not add new features to the "integration" with Beaver Builder.
We will do everything we can to support you as an user.
For deeper integration with Beaver Builder, we need the support and active cooperation of BB development team, which unfortuantely is not granted by Beaver Builder anymore.
Even without this support, we will do whatever we can to ensure that existing designs don't break and existing functionality remains working.
Butwe cannot add new features.
Adding Repeating Image Fields there is not possible, because Beaver Builder expects a certain structure that we do not provide.
The error is:
Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /wp-content/plugins/bb-plugin/modules/gallery/gallery.php on line 87
What you can do is insert the Repeating Image of Types with the GUI to a Text or HTML section:
The intention of integration with Beaver Builder is also not intended to be used on Single Pages or Posts, but on a entire Content Template. This I add just for your information, in case you stumble over other kind of issues.
