  • Hi John – I appreciate your patience – my language is not precise and I want to make sure I understand.

    In step-2 above, in wordpress wpadmin, I open a page called Our Professionals. This uses a template called Professionals. In step 1, using ACF, I added a new field to all pages created with the template Professionals.

    On the Our Professionals page can now see this new field Job Title and I type “Partners” into the field. Press Publish.

    When I press Publish, the wordpess saving mechanism kicks in, and somehow ACF piggybacks on this, so the field Job Title and it’s content Partners is included and saved.

    I do NOT need to manually edit any PHP templates ( as in writing out PHP code to call the field ) .
