  • carlosbonassi started the conversation


    How can I enable default custom fields on Bridge Theme? I need some additional fields in some parts of the site.

    I'm waiting for your answer

    Hi there,

    thanks for choosing our theme!

    To enable custom fields, just add code below at the end of functions.php file from theme folder / functions.php file or from WP admin > Appearance > Editor > Theme Functions (functions.php)

    remove_action('do_meta_boxes', 'removeDefaultCustomFields');

    It is good practice to use child theme to create these kind of changes because in this way changes will be permanent. If you continue to use main Bridge theme changes will be lost on next theme update.
    For child theme code should be add like this inside functions.php file:

    add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'add_parent_theme_metaboxes', 10 );
    function add_parent_theme_metaboxes() {
    remove_action('do_meta_boxes', 'removeDefaultCustomFields');

    Hi ! 

    I also need to access to custom fields for the Events posts in order to set up an automated plugin for import events...  

    I used the code : 

    add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'add_parent_theme_metaboxes', 10 ); 
    function add_parent_theme_metaboxes() {

    It works well for the regular posts but the box is still missing for Events. 

    Thanks for your help!

    Finally! I found it adding 'custom-fields' to 'supports' => array

    in /wp-content/plugins/qode-music/post-types/events/events-register.php
