Custom Field, IF & Require_Once

  • Hey All!

    I have a bit of a PHP question about using a custom field in a IF statement and then in a require_once.

    Here is my issue…

    I am using the following IF statement:

    	echo '<p>' . get_field('CUSTOM_FIELD') . '</p>';

    However I would like to create a IF statement that will then trigger a require_once action that uses the custom field as the file name.


    require_once $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/files/CUSTOM_FIELD.php';

    Any guidance on this would be really appreciated!

  • With some help from the guys on the WP forum I managed to get this working. I have shared the code below incase anybody needs it in the future.

    $field = get_field('CUSTOM_FIELD');
    if ($field) {
      $file = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/files/' . $field . '.php';
      require_once( $file);
