Display front-end custom field (image) for taxonomy

  • Hello!
    I created a custom field of image type for my custom taxonomy. How can now display it in front-end?
    My taxonomy is “author” for a book store, the custom field is the image of the author that i want to show in the Author page.

    Thanks a lot

  • What version of ACF are you using?

    
    // ACF >= 5.5.0
    $queried_object = get_queried_object(); // gets the term
    $post_id = 'term_'.$queried_object->term_id;
    $image = get_field('image_field_name', $post_id);
    
    
    // ACF < 5.5.0 - will also work on >= 5.5.0
    $queried_object = get_queried_object(); // gets the term
    $post_id = $queried_object->taxonomy.'_'.$queried_object->term_id;
    $image = get_field('image_field_name', $post_id);
    

    for more information see the section on getting field values from different objects on this page https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/get_field/

  • Ok with this code i get the information, but how to show it in front end?
    something like

    if( $image ) {
    
    	echo wp_get_attachment_image( $image );
    
    }

    ???

  • That depends on the return format of the image field. What do you have it set to return?
