Hide empty fields

  • On the front-end, in building out a template file for a custom post type, how do I hide empty fields?

    I’m experimenting with calling the data in different ways using different functions you’ve provided including

    the_field()
    get_field_objects()
    get_field()

    Right now, I’m using the bulk display of get_field_objects() but as I learn and go along, I’m probably going to code out the template using the_field for each of the fields, but how to prevent empty fields from being displayed?

  • As an update to this, this is the snippet I’m currently using, but it is not working.

    <?php $fields = get_field_objects();
     
    	if( $fields != "")
    	{
    		foreach( $fields as $field_name => $field )
    		{
    		  echo '<div class="single-custom-field">';
    		  echo '<h2>' . $field['label'] . '</h2>'; echo $field['value'];
    		  echo '</div>';
    		}
    	}
    ?>
