Custom field content! (3 posts)

    Hi, I am a newbie and using custom fields in my posts. I am trying to configured a custom field to be able to display a list of available users to appear in the fields drop down list without luck.

    Is it possible at all to retrieve wp user or category meta names to appear in the back-end in the custom fields, to select from, before publishing. In other words, can I run a code to get global meta such as &get_categories() in a custom field??

    My question does NOT refer to retrieving custom values to be displayed on website!

    I'm using:
    Advanced custom fields
    Custom Post Types UI
    Custom Field Template

    Appreciate any directions!

    I tried this code in a custom field but no success.

    <?php echo &get_categories() ?>

    p.s. PHP-exec is already in place.

    It is possible to retrieve dynamic select list values in a select drop down or check-boxes through Custom Field Template plugin but the plugin has very limited documentation which makes it difficult to work with.

    I appreciate if anyone could direct med how to solve this issue with this ACF plugin.
