[Video] How to show custom fields in Easy Posts Template PHP

Sridhar Katakam

Earlier today I had a Zoom session with a user from the Oxygen community where I shared my screen and showed how to

  • register a team Custom Post Type using CPT UI plugin
  • add a fields group having a few custom fields attached to the team post type using Advanced Custom Fields plugin
  • create a Template for the CPT archive
  • modify Easy Posts’ Template PHP to show the value of the custom fields

Here’s a recording of it:

Template PHP:


$position = get_field( 'position' );
$phone_number = get_field( 'phone_number' );
$email_address = get_field( 'email_address' );


<div class='oxy-post'>
    <a class='oxy-post-image' href='<?php the_permalink(); ?>'>
      <div class='oxy-post-image-fixed-ratio' style='background-image: url(<?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail_url(); ?>);'>
      <div class='oxy-post-image-date-overlay'>
		<?php the_time(get_option('date_format')); ?>
	<a class='oxy-post-title' href='<?php the_permalink(); ?>'><?php the_title(); ?></a>

	<div class="team-meta">
		<p><strong>Position:</strong> <?php echo $position; ?></p>
		printf( '<p><strong>Phone number: </strong><a href="tel:%s">%s</a></p>',

	<div class='oxy-post-content'>
		<?php the_excerpt(); ?>

	<div class="team-meta">
		printf( '<p><strong>Email: </strong><a href="mailto:%s">%s</a></p>',

	<a href='<?php the_permalink(); ?>' class='oxy-read-more'>Read More</a>
