Formatting Field Label

  • Hi,
    I’m using the following code to display both the field label and value:

       $field_name = "distance";
       $field = get_field_object($field_name);
       echo $field['label'] . ': ' . $field['value']; 

    The output on the front-end of this is Distance: 33miles
    How do I wrap a span around the field label so I can style it? <span>Distance:</span> 33miles
    Also, how do I get the field label to display ONLY if it has a value?

  • Hi this is what I have used

    $field_name = “cultivar”;
    $field = get_field_object($field_name);
    echo ‘‘, $field[‘label’],’‘ . ‘: ‘ . ‘<div class=”headlinename”>’, $field[‘value’],'</div>’,'</br>’;}

    The code has a div wrapped round the value so you can use ::after content: ‘miles’; if you liked.

    This piece of code only shows when there is a value too.

  • Thanks but I wanted the label wrapping in HTML not the value, also because you didn’t put your code in code tags when copying/pasting the quotes/apostrophes will be the wrong format.

    I found this code which seems to work well:

    <?php $field_name = "distance";
    	$field = get_field_object($field_name);?>
           <?php if ($field['value']): ?> 																	        
          <span class='post-meta-key'><?php echo $field['label']; ?>:</span> <?php echo $field['value']; ?>									
    <?php endif; ?>

    Let me know if this is a good/bad solution.
