Admin area: pulling custom field data from one page to another

  • Hi,

    Lets say I have a Custom Post Type of ‘bands’ and I’ve set a number of Custom Fields using ACF such as ‘name of band’, ‘band logo’, ‘link to bands home page’ etc.

    An editor can login to wp-admin and add new bands.

    However, I also have a ‘Schedule’ page (not post, page) where the editor can go to create an appearance schedule of all the bands.

    Is there a way to pull the data created in each bands individual page to display on the Schedule page – just to be clear again, this is all happening in wp-admin, NOT the front end?

  • If you need to use the same information on multiple pages and edit in one location your best choice is going to be an ACF options page.

  • Sorry, I misunderstood your question, it seems I was answering something completely different.

    There isn’t really a way that ACF can do this in the admin, at least not easily. You might try this add on https://wordpress.org/plugins/acf-enhanced-message-field/. You could add PHP into this field to display all the information you want.
