content in custom fields not showing on live page

  • Hey … I have embedded my “<?php the_field(”); ?>” in the appropriate places, but they aren’t showing up on the live page. I selected the location as “Post Type” = Slide, so the custom fields show up in the right place. I have 4 sections on my home page. In 2 sections the custom fields are showing on the live page while 2 sections are not. I’ve checked everything and can’t get it to work.

    Here is the code:
    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

    <div id=”myCarousel” class=”carousel slide” data-ride=”carousel”>
    <!– Indicators –>

      <li data-target=”#myCarousel” data-slide-to=”0″ class=”active”>
      <li data-target=”#myCarousel” data-slide-to=”1″>
      <li data-target=”#myCarousel” data-slide-to=”2″>

    <!– Wrapper for slides –>
    <div class=”carousel-inner” role=”listbox”>
    <?php $slider = get_posts(array(‘post_type’ => ‘slider’, ‘posts_per_page’ => 3)); ?>
    <?php $count = 0; ?>
    <?php foreach($slider as $slide): ?>
    <div class=”item <?php echo ($count == 0) ? ‘active’ : ”; ?>”>
    <div class=”overlay”></div>
    ID)) ?>” class=”img-responsive”/>
    <div class=”carousel-caption”>
    <h2><?php the_field(‘main_slide_title’); ?></h2>
    <p><?php the_field(‘main_sub_title’); ?></p>
    <p>” class=”btn btn-lg btn-primary” role=”button”>
    <?php the_field(‘main_slide_button’); ?>

    <?php $count++; ?>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    <!– Controls–>

    <span class=”glyphicon glyphicon-chevron-left” aria-hidden=”true”></span>
    <span class=”sr-only”>Previous</span>

    <span class=”glyphicon glyphicon-chevron-right” aria-hidden=”true”></span>
    <span class=”sr-only”>Next</span>



  • I can’t say for certain if this is the issue but you have an outer loop which is the main loop and holds the Global $post object. You then have an inner loop with a foreach(). Whenever you call the_field() it will always pull from the Global $post object unless told otherwise. Your foreach() doesn’t overwrite this ( you would need to use setup_postdata( $slide ) ).

    The solution could be, assuming you want to pull field values from the get_posts() results is to pass the post or post ID into the function call like so:

    the_field( 'main_slide_title', $slide )


    the_field( 'main_slide_title', $slide->ID )

  • im having a similar issue. previous fields i created are showing on my page and new one arent. even ones uploaded through a .json file
