Where can I suggest new features?
You can suggest new features on our wp.org support forum.
Can I customize the author data?
Yes you can. The “Post Author” widgets allows you to display author first name, last name, username, user bio, user image and other user data.
How do I use the custom field widgets?
When using WordPress based custom fields, the data is saved as text based fields. With 3rd party plugins, each plugin saves the data in it’s own format (text, array, object). It’s impossible to provide solutions for each and every plugin data structure.
That’s why Press Elements has two widgets to display custom fields. The “Post Custom Field” widget is used to display WordPress based custom fields, and the “Advanced Custom Fields” widget is used to display ACF custom fields.
Both widgets can display custom fields as “Text” or as “Images”. Each display type reveals it’s own advances options in the styling tab. You can also link the fields to URL stored in other custom fields.
For more advanced uses, please contact us in our wp.org support forum. The plugin is developed based on user feedback.
