I tried your code in my single.php, which I assume should be the right place. MY category is us_portfolio_category and just to try a more simple field I took “email” which should just put out the plain text. But I can’t make it work. Field stays empty.
I thought there mighty be an easy way to pass category values through to it’s posts. :/
