I'm using the Advanced Custom Fields plugin, and am having some trouble doing something that I would think would be relatively easy.
So, I've got a featured item with the typical description, title, and image. I also have some meta information that is irrelevant to this post. But, most importantly, I have a Start_date datepicker and an End_Date datepicker. I want to make a wp_query, and set
$featured_item = the_post() only if the Start_date is before or equal to today's date, and the End_Date is after or equal to today's date.
How should I go about doing this?
