I am unsuccessfully trying to display the value of a Custom Field created with Types.
I created a group Books to appear on posts
Inside that group I created a single line field named writer slug also writer
If I go to one of my posts, I now see the books box with the writer field
I put the value test of author name in the field box
I update and now at the bottom of the page in the Custom Field Area I see a custom Field
wpcf-writer with the value test of author name
So far everything seems to be working
Now I want to display the value of the writer field in the content of the post. so I tried to put both shortcode below in the post content editor in text mode.
But these do not display anything
If I insert the php below using a php exec shortcode from the theme
I do get the display of
wpcf-writer: test of author name
Which are the two custom fields existing on the post(first one is a theme defined one). So the Custom field seems defined properly, but the types shortcode does not display it.
So is the types shortcode not usable in the content editor, or am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for any insight you can provide.
