Use custom title for posts in View

Content Views helps you to show any information of WordPress posts easily: title, content, thumbnail…
About title, Content Views will display the post’s title. If you want to show a custom title for the post in View (and keep the WordPress post’s title unchanged), please follow 2 simple steps:

  • Add new custom field with name is cvp_custom_title and value is the custom title you want to show (click to read about how to add new custom field)
  • If you are using version 5.8.0 and higher versions, please skip below step.

    If you are using version 5.7.1 and prior versions, please add this code to file functions.php of your active theme:

    // Content Views Pro - Replace title by a custom field
    add_filter( 'pt_cv_field_title_result', 'cvp_theme_replace_title_by_ctf', 100, 3 );
    function cvp_theme_replace_title_by_ctf( $title, $fargs, $post ) {
    	$meta = get_post_meta( $post->ID );
    	$custom_field = 'cvp_custom_title';
    	if ( !empty( $meta[ $custom_field ][ 0 ] ) ) {
    		$title = $meta[ $custom_field ][ 0 ];
    	return $title;

Notice: If you want to use another custom field to replace post title, please replace cvp_custom_title in above code with name of your field.
