I have an interesting quirk, here. I’m sure it’s something I’m doing wrong, but any advice would be much appreciated.
What I’m trying to build is a one page with a grid of 10-15 company logos. I click a logo, and a modal popup box (custom post type in wordpress) appears that displays company data like company name, company url, company CEO, logo, etc. These are all ACF fields that I have created and associated to the edit screen on the custom post type from the modal popup plugin. I can create a new modal popup, and save all this data in the post using the ACF fields, just fine.
Here’s where it gets weird. When i preview the modal popup in the wordpress admin editor, the data populates to the HTML output and pulls the correct field data using code like this – <?php $post_object = get_field('companyname'); ?>
However, when i look at the modal popup launched from clicking a logo on the live page, all the data fields are empty.
It’s as if, the get_field function is looking for these fields on the “page” rather than the custom post (modal popups) in which the data was recorded.
How do I tell the modal template to look at the post data, and not the page data?
I’m not sure there is enough information. But, you’ll need to tell the modal template what post to get the values from and then use that in the acf function <?php $post_object = get_field('companyname', $post_id); ?> or at least that’s the way it sounds.
