A little dilemma

Recommended Posts

Aires

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?

Use a wordpress action, or a shortcode to display the data.

Thanks Simon_P"] and  @[member="evscicats  I will give both of these a try and see which works best.

Aires - Have you seen Custom Content Shortcode - https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-content-shortcode/?

I found it recently when I was trying to get custom post type content on my DMS website. It has been a life saver!

Do you mind sharing the site you used it on? My site I'm building is for an attorney office and they have over 50 total employees so I know adding via CPT would work great for displaying them all but I wonder how it would work displaying one by one.

      Hi,
      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!

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
