Please help fix my loop? No fields display

  • I’ve spent all afternoon trying to display custom field values in a page template, first with Types (which is awful) and now with ACF. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong here…

    This is my custom loop in a page template with two of my ACF fields:

    <div id="reviews">
    	<h2>User Feedback About the Animas</h2>
    	<?php
    	$args = array(
    		'post_type' => 'review',
    		'posts_per_page' => 10
    	);
    	$loop = new WP_Query( $args );
    	echo '<ul>';
    		while ( $loop->have_posts() ) : $loop->the_post(); ?>
    			<li>
    				<?php the_content(); ?>
    				<h5 class="author"><?php the_title(); ?></h5>
    				<p><?php the_field('your_name'); ?></p>
    				<p><?php the_field('your_testimonial'); ?></p>
    			</li>
    		<?php endwhile;
    	echo '</ul>'; ?>
    	<?php wp_reset_query(); ?>
    </div>

    The ACF fields don’t display at all. Please help, I’ve looked at dozens of code examples and nothing I’ve tried today has worked.

  • Whilst certainly no expert, I couldn’t get the_field to work in a WP-Query, so I used this instead:

    
    $name = get_post_meta(get_the_ID() , 'your_name', true); //custom field

    then just echo $name

  • This still doesn’t work for me… no custom field is displayed ๐Ÿ™

    I tried it in a new empty page template, in or out of the loop, same result… nothing displayed.

  • Never got it working as above, but figured out I didn’t need ACF after all. Now it’s working perfectly, just using Gravity Forms + Custom Post Types.

  • Try that to test what happens:

    $yourname = get_field('your_name');
    var_dump($your_name);

    var_dump show you, what returned by get_field/the_field function.

    to hide your tests from users, put testing code into that check:

    if ( get_current_user_id() == 1 ) { /* if your user_id isn't 1, change 1 into code to your user_id */
    //your testing code here
    }
