Link Picker control designed to work with 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)


  1. Download this repository and unzip it into the folder link-picker-for-cmb2
  2. Upload the link-picker-for-cmb2 folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  4. Configure the plugin via the 'Link Picker for CMB2' options page under the WordPress 'Settings' Menu
