Problem with function in single.php

  • Hello guys,

    I’m really not a professional coder so excuse any nooby mistakes or words. Will try my best to explain my actual trouble. First here is the code that drives me insane:

    function get_my_values($posts) {
    	$total = 0;
    	$count = 0;
        foreach($posts as $post)
                $total += get_field('faktor');
         $Average = $total / $count;
         echo $Average;

    This function works perfect in the category view(category.php) but not in the single-view (single.php). In the category.php the system is using all values of the custom-field “faktor” and creates a sum like it should be but in the single.php the system only works with the custom-field value of the single-post.

    Actually I think the whole function is straight for the trash but I’m not afraid of learning something new or spending my time with google like the last 5 days :-D. But I’m thankful for any idea to make a step in front.

    Thank you in advance!

  • Hi @noterepeat

    I think all you need to do is make sure that ACF is loading from the correct $post by adding in a second parameter into the get_field function like so:

    get_field('faktor', $post->ID)

    Hope that helps.


  • Hello E,

    thank you for your quick support! Doesn’t worked for me but after another night with google I found the solution!

    $total = 0;
    query_posts('category_name=' . get_option('featured-cat'));
        while (have_posts()) : the_post();
            $total += get_post_meta($post->ID, 'weight', true);
    echo '<p>'.$total.'</p>';

    Did the post-count for creating the final average with a seperate function I found on the net!
