Do I need to create a template file for this to work? (2 posts)

    Hi all.

    I'm having trouble following the installation of this plugin.

    I've managed to create some custom fields and they're showing up at the pages where I want to use them.

    Now I understand that I need to add some lines of code to a file. I just don't understand to which file I need to add it to. I suspect it's the index.php, or do I need to make a separate template file? Because I'm already using the_content to load content into the index.php and I donĀ“t see where I should paste this field code: <p><?php the_field('field_name'); ?></p>.

    I tried replacing field_name with my own field name I set in the plugin, and added the field code below the_content but still nothing shows.

    Wonder how to make it work?

    This plugin is kinda only for advanced users I guess.

    Thanks for any help.
