I’m building a motorcycle workshops directory site; using a custom post-type with custom fields to order the information.
My question is what are the next steps that I need to take, in order to display ACF Pro custom fields on the front end of the site?
I’ve outlined my setup and the steps I’ve taken so far below:
Wordpress Version 4.6.1
Upfront Theme = Issue
Significantly, I’m using ACF for custom field creation instead of CustomPress which I did in fact install; merely to replicate the custom post-type settings of the WPMDEV's 'Directory' plugin .
I'm using ACF Pro for custom field creation because it appears to have a greater variety of fields and primarily because I require the gallery and Google map field options for this post-type
Steps I’ve taken so far:
1. Created a custom post-type called [Workshop] as well as custom tag taxonomy and 2 x custom category taxonomies using CustomPress, which I’ve associated with the custom post-type.
3. Created a template file for the custom post-type ‘workshop’ called single-workshop.php by checking the box in CustomPress and saving settings. This has been placed in the Upfront theme directory rather than 'Issue' theme directory.
4. Using ACF Theme code plugin I’ve copied and pasted the ACF front-end code to a text editor (Sublime Text) file; with <div> tags to separate the ACF fields for CSS styling later. I'm not certain which theme directory file and where in the file I'll need to paste this code. ACF's documentation is somewhat ambiguous for a WordPress novice.
FYI - I’m open to alternative suggestions plugins/methods for an easier way of achieving this.
