How do I show a custom field for a Category??? (Please don’t say “read the docs,” I have been reading them for three hours now!!!)
I want to show a different block of text on each Category page.
I created a text area custom field for my Categories. The field name is:
Now how do I actually display that “category_footer” custom field on the Category pages?
I have tried using short codes:
And that did not work. So I tried using PHP:
<p><?php the_field('category_footer'); ?></p>
But that did not work either.
The data exists in the BACKEND ok. By that, I mean that if i go to a category page and enter text into the “category_footer” custom footer, then that data will stay there.
But I have no idea how to access that data on the front end.
What code should I use and WHERE does it need to go???
By the way; I have the location rules for my “category_footer” custom field set as the following:
Show this field group if Taxonomy Term is equal to Categories
I don’t use tags / taxonimies of any kind (at least as far as I know).
Also, I am using genesis framework and have been trying to use the shortcodes and php in the genesis simple hooks areas.
Thanks in advance.
