I am using PL5 as well as Advanced Custom Fields (AFC) to help add meta data to individual posts on our blog. However, where I am getting stuck is how to display the meta data on the actual public post page (frontend). For example, if we have posts that have a subject matter of plants then there are custom fields that the client fills out such as "Scientific Name", "Region", etc. I have used ACF before to display this meta data onto the loops section as well as in Revolution Slider or Essential Grid. However, I am not sure if there is a way to have this metadata display on the actual post page. Can you point me in the right direction? I am using a child theme so I wasn't sure if that meant I had to edit the functions.php file or if there was some other workaround that you knew of.
Thanks so much!
We are building a Custom Post Type with Custom Fields and Custom Taxonomies.
The only thing we dont understand is how to embed the Custom Fields including header tags and stuff in the Postloop (now we use a text-box below the postloop section but also SEO wise this is not best pratice).
So we thought to copy the dms Postloop section to our child theme and rename this, to add an extra Postloop section to our theme. Is this the way?
What exactly to adjust in those 3 files class.posts.php, section.php and style.less (at this point we know how to change the thumb LOL) and where to add the Custom Fields shortcodes?
It looks like there is a plugin conflict with the Platform5 Maps and Toolset Views plugin which prevents the map from displaying on screen. Deactivate the views plugin and the map appears.
There are the following browser warnings...
I found that I'm unable to create and save custom field groups with WP Types when Single Bits is installed and active.
I'm not sure if it interferes with any other functionality, but there's definitely an issue with custom field groups.
When I deactivate Single Bits, I'm able to create custom field groups.
Custom fields appear to be fully functioning after creating them and reactivating Single Bits, so that's good.
Ok, I'm having problems with my custom post types showing on my front blog page along with my regular blog post, here is a link to the custom post type (sample post) ==> http://www.definitiondjs.com/musiclibrary/this-is-a-post-title-test/ ..... my custom fields doesn't show, Why?
Also, when I edit the custom post, all the fields change to blank (the previous text that was in the field is somehow deleted), why?

cpt plugin is: WCK, here is a link to the site ==> http://www.cozmoslabs.com/docs/wordpress-creation-kit-documentation/
I linked snapshots of the custom fields area, which doesnt show after publishing or after clicking edit this post:
Summary, I would like my custom post to display on my front page, along with my blog post.
Also I would like to have an option to hide post from showing on front page, but I would like for all posts to show in search, archieved and category, even if hidden from the front page.
Thanks in advance!
