I have a custom post type for attorney profiles and I’d like to have a custom sidebar for each which is editable in the WP editor. How do I get certain custom fields to output to the sidebar? Each profile will have a unique sidebar. Is this an add-on feature or coding issue?
When I change the position of the custom field group to Side (versus) Normal, the metabox moves from the main content area to the sidebar…but that doesn’t effect where the information is output on the front end.
Like the original poster, I’m trying to get the information collected from the fields in the backend to show up in the sidebar of certain pages on the front end. But because I can’t use PHP or shortcodes in sidebars, I’m having trouble.
Do you have any suggestions on how to get the information collected from the custom fields to output in sidebars on the frontend? (Preferably without requiring additional plugins…)
