Page link fields

    Hi I am really new to php so sorry for the ignorance.

    I have set up a page link field which I can get to echo out the page link in html text by using the following.

    $field_name = "linkedto";
    $field = get_field_object($field_name);
    echo '<strong>', $field['label'],'</strong>' . ': ' . $field['value'],'</br>';}

    What I am struggling with is making the thing output a link with the post title as the link name and the whole thing it a link to the post in question.

    Hope someone can help a newbie out on this please. I am using genesis and for some reason I have to echo everything out – don’t ask why but so far I have a nice list of fields in HTML but just struggling to work out the page link thing.

  • Hey, try this:

    $id = get_field('linkedto');
    if ($id) {
        echo '<a href="' . get_permalink($id) . '">';
            echo get_the_title($id);
        echo '</a>';

    Hi Philipp thank you for that, it certainly doesn’t break anything but all it returns when I look in firedbug is

    No link inside…hmm

    Thank you though

    If it helps anyone the code kindly offered above out puts

  • The Page Link field only returns a URL, so the title isn’t returned. Change your field type to Post Object and it’ll work.
