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!
I have been trying to get some of my past clients who’s sites I still manage to allow me to bring their sites over to DMS (so I can stop paying ET yearly just for updates). I ran into an issue when I realize that I used advanced custom fields with a page template to generate some custom areas.
My questions is how do I incorporate the ACF into a template when DMS doesn’t use traditional WordPress templates. In other words how would I call the data to have it show if there is no page/post php to write to.
Is there something hidden that I don’t see that I need to copy into my child theme?
