I’m looking for a solution to this, as well.
When I change the position of the custom field group to Side (versus) Normal, the metabox moves from the main content area to the sidebar…but that doesn’t effect where the information is output on the front end.
Like the original poster, I’m trying to get the information collected from the fields in the backend to show up in the sidebar of certain pages on the front end. But because I can’t use PHP or shortcodes in sidebars, I’m having trouble.
Do you have any suggestions on how to get the information collected from the custom fields to output in sidebars on the frontend? (Preferably without requiring additional plugins…)
Thank you in advance for the help!
