How to show custom fields in post summary? (5 posts)

    Hello, I've been struggling to use custom fields for my website for the last week or so. After trying numerous plugins (More Fields, Advanced Custom Fields), I'm now currently using WordPress' own custom fields. On my website, the posts are set to display as excerpts (link to website). However, with all 3 options for custom fields I've tried, the problem is the same - I cannot get the field values to display within the post summary, only in individual posts. How do I get my custom fields to show up in each excerpt?

    Your site forces a login, so that link is useless.

    You will need to edit your theme's PHP, probably index.php. If I could see the site I might be able to do better.

    I'm not sure how to make it so that you can see the site.. Sorry, very new to wordpress here. I'm using a child theme based off Thematic if it helps.

    What theme? Is it a theme you created? Can I get to the source?
