How to fetch custom field value in index.php?

  • Hi,

    I have created custom field for pages, and i created home page. When i am trying to fetch the field value in index.php using the below code . But nothing is displaying in front end. Please help me.

    * The main template file
    * This is the most generic template file in a WordPress theme and one
    * of the two required files for a theme (the other being style.css).
    * It is used to display a page when nothing more specific matches a query,
    * e.g., it puts together the home page when no home.php file exists.
    * @link
    * @package WordPress
    * @subpackage Twenty_Fourteen
    * @since Twenty Fourteen 1.0

    get_header(); ?>

    <div id=”main-content” class=”main-content”>

    <div id=”primary” class=”content-area”>
    <div id=”content” class=”site-content” role=”main”>

    <?php the_field(“page_intro_text”); ?>

    </div><!– #content –>
    </div><!– #primary –>
    </div><!– #main-content –>



  • Elliot answered a similar question here. In order to call a field while on index.php, you need to add the page_ID like this: <?php the_field('page_intro_text', 15); ?> where the number ’15’ is the value of page_ID for the page that has the field 'page_intro_text'.
