Support » Plugins » Echo quotes inside function?

  • Can’t seem to work this one out – hoping someone can quell my frustration:

    I’m using Advanced Custom Fields (which I love!) and need to echo “get_the_field(‘field_name’)”. Should all be easy, so I thought. But I can’t use the (‘field_name’) within the statement as single quotes are used for other purposes. I’ve tried double quotes, combinations, etc. but can’t get it working. Any help appreciated 🙂 My echo statement is

    echo '<h5><a href="'.get_permalink().'">'.get_the_field() . '</a></h5>';

    you can break your code into several lines at any time.

    however, using any quotes within your function get_the_field() should be no problem;
    what was the exact code that ‘failed’?
    and what was the result?

    Hi Alchymyth,

    Seems that it must have been something with my code cause it’s all working now? I’m not sure what I did to get it working but this works fine:

    echo '<h5><a href="'.get_permalink().'">'.get_the_field('the_field') . '</a></h5>';

    Thanks for your offer of help 🙂
