MEOW_Field :: val( $value = null )

Returns:

  • Mixed The value of the field - this type of this value depends on the type of this field, it will most commonly be a string or an array.

A shorthand synonym for the MEOW_Field::value method, to retrieve the value of the field. If a value argument is supplied, this method will SET the field value instead.

Important: the _toString PHP magic method handles direct echoing of field values out to your templates by simply echoing the a MEOW_Field object directly, but this automatic conversion to a string does NOT happen when using the value of a field as a variable in an expression. This is where the MEOW_Field::val or MEOW_Field::value methods must be used. See the example for the correct and incorrect way to use values in variables.

Example:

Parameters:

  • $value = null

    Optional – if this argument is supplied, the value of the field will be SET.

Latest From the Blog

MasterPress 1.3.6 is now available

Masterpress 1.3.6 is a compatibility release. It resolves an edge case with shared fieldsets not working for MySQL 8 when the fieldset is limited to more than 1 post type or taxonomy or excluding any post types or taxonomies.

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 WordPress.com hosted service.
