custom field in woocommerce category meta

  • I created a custom field cat_price and writing it to WC through update_woocommerce_term_meta( $term_id, 'cat_price', esc_attr( $_POST['cat_price'] ) );
    How I can add this field value to category meta title and description?
    After adding %customfield(cat_price)% to meta input I got a js error in console:
    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot use 'in' operator to search for 'cat_price' in undefined
    and zero output in frontend.

    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    The %customfield(field-name)% variable replacement is designed to only work when loading values that are assigned to posts. In your use case, you are loading the custom field from the current term and this is why it does not work.
    I have gone ahead and registered the following custom variable replacement on your theme that will work on the frontend using the variable: %CustomCatPrice%:

    add_action( 'rank_math/vars/register_extra_replacements', function() {
       RankMath\Helper::register_var_replacement( 'CustomCatPrice','RMCustomfieldCallback',$args = array(
    	        'name'    => esc_html__( 'Custom cat_price', 'rank-math' ),
    			'desc'    => esc_html__( 'Custom price for current category', 'rank-math' ),
    			'example' => esc_html__(RMCustomfieldCallback())));
    } );
    function RMCustomfieldCallback(){
    		$term = get_queried_object();
            if ( $term && ! empty( get_woocommerce_term_meta( $term->term_id, 'cat_price', true ) ) ) {
    			return wc_format_content( htmlspecialchars_decode( get_woocommerce_term_meta( $term->term_id, 'cat_price', true ) ) );

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    Thanks so much for your help!
