Selecting a Taxonomy and Showing Custom Fields Associated to That Taxonomy

    I’m using ACF on a post type and one of those fields is a Select field that selects a Custom Taxonomy (Speaker Name). I’m also using Custom Fields for that Taxonomy (Speaker Title, Speaker Bio, Speaker Headshot, etc.). How can I pull the Taxonomy Custom Fields when the Taxonomy is selected in the Post Type.

    For instance, if I select the Speaker Name “Jon Smith”, I would like to automatically pull all of Jon Smith’s info.

    This works for pulling the Speaker Name

    $speakname= get_field('speaker_name');
    <p><?php echo $title; ?></p>

    This doesn’t work for pulling the Speaker Bio

    $bio= get_field('speaker_bio');
    <p><?php echo $bio; ?></p>

    Any idea how to get this to work?

    Thanks in advance!

    // get tax field without formatting, returns term if
    $speakname= get_field('speaker_name', false, false);
    // get field from term
    $bio= get_field('speaker_bio', 'term_'.$speakname);

    Hmm, so the code I provided works when I’m viewing that taxonomy archive (i.e. but when I view a post type archive (i.e. it doesn’t work.

    I do have the Field Group set to show when that Taxonomy is set to Speakers… so how do I get them to display the values on other category/archive pages?
