I am trying to display the icon and value of my fields in a custom built details page template in Elementor Pro.
I’ve tried adding it as a heading and text area with dynamic content (making the post meta as the content). I’ve also tried adding it as a shortcode but nothing seems to work.
If I change the Show setting to anything else that doesn’t include the icon, the data shows up correctly (eg, vale (saved in database), value etc).
Could you please advise as I would like to show the icons if possible.

Thanks for your message. Kindly share the URL of the page in question and also your Website WP admin access here in private reply and we’ll check this out for you asap!
can you describe the issue? Do you mean that when you use a shortcode like this that the icon is not being output? Or is it something else?
[gd_post_meta key=”post_content” show=”icon-value”]
Make sure you use an Elementor “Shortcode” module; that is the only one that works with shortcodes reliably.
If we need to check the template please share a direct link to the backend editor of the template and a screenshot or key of the field you are trying to add.
I’ve used shortcodes as well as dynamic content but I’m coming across the same issue. I’m trying to populate a field’s icon (email, phone, twitter, website etc) but it doesn’t seem to be working. I can only view the value.
If I want to show the phone number with the phone icon beside it, it won’t work. However if I set it to only show the value without the icon, it works fine.
Hope that makes sense.
I’m trying to populate a field’s icon
Do you mean … a text field? No, it will only show the value.
Alterinatively you can either
1. Use an Elementor widget to show an icon or
2. Use a shortcode in a shortcode module like I showed above.
If you use a text field, that will only populate with the text ‘value’
Sorry, maybe I’m not explaining this correctly. I am trying to pull the data (including the icon) from a field (for example email or phone number) onto my details template which I’ve created with Elementor.
I’ve tried with a shortcode but that doesn’t work. I’ve also tried it in an Icon List but it will not populate the icon + value together. If I only choose to show the ‘value’ or ‘value (set in database)’ the value populates with no issues but the icon will not display at all.
The closest I got to work was the website URL but instead of populating ‘icon + https://example.com‘ it populated ‘icon + website’. This was in a Heading element.
Initially I was going to just use a static icon via the Icon List element but then I realised that would appear on the page regardless what package the client got (which is not what I want to happen) so I need to get this working.
The shortcodes seem to work for me, please check. As you can see in the screenshot the ‘fa bar’ is the icon for the title.
The Elementor integration doesn’t go as deep as setting icons for Elementor Icon lists, but I will add that to the list of integration ideas.
Tonight we released an update with several more integrations, though:
* Elementor number dynamic tags support added – ADDED
* Elementor dynamic content, added some more hidden raw fields – ADDED
* Elementor rating widget support added – ADDED
* Elementor gallery widget support added – ADDED
* Elementor dynamic color tag support added – ADDED
* Elementor pro gallery widget support added – ADDED
* Elementor pro image carousel widget support added – ADDED
* Elementor pro theme builder types added for greater control – ADDED
If you have more ideas about integrations, please add them here
Beaver Builder and Beaver Themer
URL fields can store both the URL and the title. The output includes HTML by default for all GD Post Meta.
I can confirm an issue with the website field, the developers will check into it and post back with an update.
I just test a URL and Text Field
Both with GD Post Meta ( bottom of the page).
Can you say which field type and specific field keys is not working so I can look into it further?
