  • First thing I noticed is that you are not referencing the global $post variable. Add this at the beginning of your function:

    global $post;

    Without that, using a loop that uses the_post() will not get anything.

    The code for getting a field from a widget is:

    $my_value = get_field('field_name', 'widget_'.$widget_id);

    Getting the fields from the banner posts, because you are doing a loop, is the same as getting a field anywhere else `get_field(‘field_name’);
