Showing fields in page template and category.php

  • Hi!

    I have a page template called “Additions” and i have created “Additions” Field Group and fields show properly both in WP dashboard and on frontend page.
    But, i would wish to show those same fields (values filled on Additions page) on blog category page (which is using category.php).

    So, in field group options i have selected, beside Additions page template, all taxonomies (because i want to show those fields on all category pages) but they dont show up… I have also tried “Post Category”, “Post Taxonomy” but those fields just dont want to show up on category page…

  • Do you want to add values to the category or do you want to show the values from each post on the category page?

  • Hi John,

    thank you for getting back to me, it means a lot.
    I would like whatever content i enter on “Additions” page to show up, not only on Additions page, but also on category.php and single.php page.

    In additions page i am using this to echo the content:

        $call_to_action = get_field('call_to_action');
        if( $call_to_action ): ?>
        <div class="cta" style="background-image:url('<?php echo $call_to_action['image']; ?>')">
            <div class="container">
                <div class="row">
                    <div class="col-12">
                        <div class="card text-center">
                            <h1><?php echo $call_to_action['title']; ?></h1>
                            <h3><?php echo $call_to_action['subtitle']; ?></h3>
                            <a href="<?php echo esc_url( $call_to_action['link']['url'] ); ?>" class="btn btn-primary"><?php echo esc_html( $call_to_action['link']['title'] ); ?></a>
        <?php endif; ?>

    But since i am just starting with PHP i really dont know how to show it on those pages as well… I tried following this article but i really dont know how to implement this…

    Any help would mean a lot…


  • As long as you’re in “The Loop” ( that is showing posts you show fields on a category page the same way you show them on a single page.

    // the category page should have a loop
    while (have_posts()) {
      // as long as you show the field here it should work
  • I understand, those fields will show up on “Additions” because field group is created for Additions template.

    But if i paste this code into category.php, nothing shows up…
    How can i tell ACF to display entered values from Addition page on category page as well?

    English isnt my first language so i dont know am i explaining it properly 😀
