Can anyone guide me please?
I would like to learn how to achieve custom fields and going to give ACF plugin a try. I have watched all the videos and read the documentation and all is good except I can find the template files for the pages and posts. I believe I should be looking for the file single.php but what about posts? Is the reason I can't find them because I am using a framework? Pagelines Framework? How can I add my custom fields to the templates on Pagelines Framework?
Any guidance would be appreciated please.
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?
I got messages from my Sucuri plugin that Boxes, and Grid Portfolio are getting updated by someone other than myself. They were being changed from private to published posts. Here is the message from Sucuri:
Subject: Post Update
Time: April 10, 2015 8:39 am
IP Address: 188.8.131.52
Boxes (private to published); identifier: 1965; name: Responsive & Mobile
The Grid Portfolio developer responded to my email inquiry as follows:
"the section that I built on then v2 of PlatformPro was done in a very typical manner using the PageLines methods available from the core theme. Any security holes would be in the framework as a whole a not specifically to Grid Portfolio."
Can you please tell me if this is a security issue, and if so, what can be done about it.
Thanks very much,
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.
