  • Hi @sirblogalot
    It is most likely an issue with scope.

    When you use get_field or the_field in the normal page template, they have access to the global $post object and can find the correct $post_id to load data from.

    Within a widget, however, the functions may not be able to find this global $post object. Perhaps you could do some testing in your code to see if this object can be found and if it’s ID is the correct value.

    good luck
