    Hey Daron,

    I’m having some issues with getting a widget-based plugin, Page Builder (https://siteorigin.com/page-builder/), and your plugin to play well together. I’m able to create widgets and fields just fine, and they work perfectly well in the WordPress widget interface, but the fields fail to load when I instantiate the widget in Page Builder.

    This is almost assuredly Page Builder’s fault, but I just don’t know what to tell them to fix. Is there a hook or filter that needs to be called when a widget is instantiated to get this to play nicely?

    Hey Daniel.

    Page builders can be tricky because they don’t run the normal action hooks like when you’re using the regular post editor. The problem is usually seen on “Front End” page builders more so than /wp-admin/ page builders. Usually if they run all of the hooks needed for an admin page request, it seems to work but not always.

    I’ve heard the same complaints about Beaver Builder as well 🙁

    Sorry about that 🙁

    Yeah, I saw the Beaver Builder message from earlier, and read through it to make sure my question wasn’t answered there.

    As for the exact issue I’m having, I should have said ‘form’ and not fields. It’s the form used to create the fields, and not getting the data out of them. I’m not sure if that makes a difference to the hooks that are needed, but I figured I would check.
