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'm using the Toolset plugin (Types and Views) to create a CPT and display on the front-end within Pagelines PL5. All is good except that PL5 doesn't pull in the post fields like I created them.
For the CPT content template I created it in this order:
wpv-post-title My custom image field My custom short description wpv-post-body wpv-post-taxonomy The problem is that it displays on the front-end like this:
Feature Image Post Title Post Meta My custom image field My Custom short description Post Body I found only one support ticket in Toolset's forums about this and it has to do with the good old Pagelines Platforms. Nonetheless it has some good info. It points out that, "Content Templates modify the content when called from the_content function. Some themes don't use this function, but define their own. If Content Templates don't work with your theme then you can enter the name of the function your theme uses."
Can you let me know what what function Pagelines PL5 defines in place of the_content so I can enable PL5 support inside the Toolset settings? If there are any other things I should know about getting PL5 to work with Toolset, all advice is appreciated!
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?
Hi there, the Filter By option within the Masonic section isn't working when a custom post type and custom category is selected. If you swap to normal posts and categories then it works but sadly not with custom post types and custom categories.
All posts are shown but when you click on the categories all posts disappear even though posts do have these categories. When you click All all the posts come back. I've tried this on two different websites with the same result.
Many thanks in advance.

I'm currently using the Filtering plugin on a website that is not yet live (http://www.RetroLeaders.com/ - currently hidden by a "Coming Soon" plugin) however after updating to the most recent version of Wordpress and DMS the Filtering plugin has stopped working and is causing DMS to display the never ending load icon.
Inspecting the code for errors I see the following problems:
. jquery.isotope.min.js?ver=1.7.4:11 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'opera' of undefined (anonymous function) @ jquery.isotope.min.js?ver=1.7.4:11 (anonymous function) @ jquery.isotope.min.js?ver=1.7.4:11 (index):66 Uncaught TypeError: mycontainer.isotope is not a function (anonymous function) @ (index):66 jQuery.Callbacks.fire @ jquery.js?ver=1.11.2:3143 jQuery.Callbacks.self.fireWith @ jquery.js?ver=1.11.2:3255 jQuery.extend.ready @ jquery.js?ver=1.11.2:3467 completed @ jquery.js?ver=1.11.2:3498
Can you please check if everything is working properly and provide an update if necessary? The filtering function is a crucial part of my web design and we cannot go live without it!
Please let me know what you find.
