Support » Plugin: Advanced Custom Fields » the_field for category pages

  • Hi there,

    i´m using acf for several things. One of them is to show different header images for every page. This works fine. Since i gave categories to my pages, i´m using the category pages as an overview.

    They display page icons, title and excerpt for each page inside the category. You might want to take a look:

    So, because i don´t want the category page to show the header image of the first page inside it, i also added a field for that to the edit-category page.

    When i now call <?php the_field('page_header_image'); ?>"/> inside my category.php it doesn´t work. Using the same code inside my page.php works perfectly fine, but not here. I also tried to name the field differently, since i was afraid the value of the category could be in conflict with the value of the first page but i won´t work either.

    I also tried to just add a text field called “test” to just read out a word before my category description, but even that doesn´t work.

    It seems, that no matter which field i add to a category, i can´t read it out.

    Would be very nice to get some help here, so i don´t have to create a static css workaround.

    Thanks in advance 🙂
