Checkbox value not displaying

    I’m having trouble with a check box not returning a value. I’m trying to make a option for a page to show/hide page titles, but I’m unable to get the value.

    I have tried this after seeing a similar issue here

    $option = get_field('hide_page_title');
    echo '<pre>';
    	var_dump( $option );
    echo '</pre>';

    It returns “bool(false)” no matter if it is checked or not. And the_field(‘hide_page_title’) return nothing.

    Other fields seem to working OK.

    Can anyone help me please?

    Hi @cloud9

    The issue will be 1 of 2 things:

    1. The field name is incorrect. Please double check it
    2. The global $post object is not correct. This is more likely the case and to help you further I will need to know:

    Where is the data saved?
    What template are you loading the data from?

    Hi Elliot,

    Thanks for the reply. I’m using a custom child theme I’m building based on the Roots theme ( )

    I’m not sure what you mean when you say ‘where is te data saved’.

    The template is a custom one which looks like this

    I have attached two screen shots that might help.

    Hi @cloud9

    Looking at your screenshot it seems you have a spelling mistake in your field name!

    I’m SO sorry for wasting your time. But thanks all the same.
