MEOW_Field :: prop_val( String $name )


  • String Returns the value of the property if found, or an empty string otherwise.

Get the raw value of a field type property. A property in this case is not a standard PHP object property, but rather a meta property that further clarifies the value of this field. Only the richer field types support properties on the value of the field, with the most notable being Image type which stores alt and title attributes as properties, and the Video field type which stores the properties retrieved from the YouTube or Vimeo APIs as properties.

Note that this method is primarily intended for field type classes to access the raw property values. The MEOW_Field::prop method is more suitable for the front-end since it post-processes the raw values into something more useful (via the very methods in field type classes that call this function). 


  • String $name

    The name of the property to retrieve.

MasterPress 1.4.0 is now available

6th May 2024

This release has a focus on improving compatibility with PHP 8.2. The introduction of inheritance validation to PHP produced a lot of warnings when using MasterPress with PHP 8.2. I have updated most of the problematic code – but some code would have broken in previous PHP versions, so I have temporarily disabled inheritance validation… 

Plugin Requirements

MasterPress requires a minimum of WordPress version 4.9, MySQL 5.6, and PHP version 5.6.20.

We also recommend that PHP is configured to use a memory limit of 64MB per request (128MB may be required for sites with higher complexity).

This plug-in is not compatible with the hosted service.
