This field allows you to select between internal and external links, choosing from a dropdown of Posts and Archives for internal links or manually entering a URL for external.

This repository is based on htmlburger/carbon-fields-template.


composer require evanshunt/carbon-fields-smartlink


use Carbon_Fields\Field\Field;


Field::make('smartlink', 'your_field_name', 'Your Field Name');


  1. Build in logic to neatly upgrade from a text URL field, redefining such as an external link.
  2. Add support for taxonomies, etc.

Building assets

  1. Edit webpack.config.js and make sure const root points to the directory where Carbon Fields are installed (e.g. const root = path.resolve(__dirname, '../vendor/includes/htmlburger/carbon-fields'); )
  2. Execute npm install in the root directory to install all build process requirements.
  3. Execute npm run build to build the final minimized assets


Execute npm run dev to continuously build assets during development. Note that you should add define( 'SCRIPT_DEBUG', true ); to your wp-config.php file in order to load the files generated by the dev build process.
