I have cMap running and followed your tutorial for adding custom fields to the Add New Entry Form (all showing well, using Code Snippets plugin) AND I have managed to insert the data from the fields into the card and card-single PHP files okay.
What I cannot work out is how to add the Label for each of those custom fields so they make sense when displayed.
I have this in my card templates:
$text = $entry->getMeta( array( 'key' => 'field_id_abn', // This should match exactly the field id used when registering the custom field. 'single' => TRUE // Do not change this. ) );
But need to enter ABN/ACN: As the label for when this information is displayed.
Can you please advise me.
I have card.php and card-single.php in theme/child/connections-templates/cmap
Many thanks in advance
PS In my code snippets, I am using this
array( 'name' => 'ACN/ABN', // Change this field name to something which applies to you project. 'show_label' => TRUE, // Whether or not to display the 'name'. Changing it to false will suppress the name. 'id' => 'field_id_abn', // Change this so it is unique to you project. Each field id MUST be unique. 'type' => 'text', // This is the field type being added. 'size' => 'regular', // This can be changed to one of the following: 'small', 'regular', 'large' ),

- This topic was modified 5 years, 11 months ago by Steve Davis. Reason: Extra information
card-single.phpfiles where you added the
$text = $entry->getMeta(chunck of code, you need to add this line as mentioned in the tutorial:
if ( ! empty( $text ) ) echo '' . esc_html( $text ) . '';
Here, you can add any label you want, just add it to the code. Example:
if ( ! empty( $text ) ) echo '<strong>ABN/ACN:</strong> ' . esc_html( $text ) . '';
Hope that helps!

Thanks, Steven. That’s doing the job. One thing for anybody else who sees this, the backslash in Steven’s example <strong/> needs to be , and we have lift off. Much obliged.
if ( ! empty( $text ) ) echo ‘
ABN/ACN: ‘ . esc_html( $text ) . ‘

You reply got a little mangled, but I think I get what you are saying… I incorrectly closed the strong tag. I corrected my previous reply.
