Link Picker for CMB2


Using the Link Picker for CMB2 control, you can choose a link from your WordPress site, or manually enter a link. You can also identify if the link should open in a new window, or not.


  • Easy to integrate with CMB2, just add a type of link_picker
  • Works with repeatable groups
  • Works as a repeatable field when repeatable is set to true
  • Outputs an array of text, url and blank when using get_post_meta
  • You are able to split the values of the field into individual parts by setting split_values to true. You can retrieve the split values by using the ID of the field and appending _text, _url and _blank to the ID when using get_post_meta (not compatible if using a repeatable field)

Works great. If you want to adjust, fork it. Thanks for providing this.

Thanks for this plugin. It's got potential. Might be a mistake on my part, but I couldn't find the settings the plugin claims to have. I didn't want to show the 'text' or 'blank' options, but I hid them with CSS, so no biggie. Also, "repeatable" facility appears not to work.
