So I’ve exported a few custom fields (PHP) into a theme I’m working on. However, if I activate up the theme for the first time, I noticed the default values are not showing up. I have to go inside the options tab and save the values in order for the default values to work (which is not ideal).
Is there a way this can be fixed?
The default value is only intended to be used in the back-end for your client to see, it is not meant to be returned via the get_field function.
You will need to use some logic in your code to allow for a
false value being returned from the get_field function.
Does that help?
