  • the ACF functions are only useful inside “The Loop” like many WP functions. You will need to supply the post ID when using it in this manner, this will be more complicated because you’re also trying to use the same function on a category page. global $post won’t do you much good here.

    $queried_object = get_queried_object();
    if (isset($queried_object->ID)) {
      $post_id = $queried_object->ID;
    } elseif (isset($queried_object->term_id)) {
      $post_id = $queried_object->taxonomy.'_'.$queried_object->term_id;

    then when getting fields

    get_field('field_name', $post_id);
