Wordpress Custom Fields from a Post

On my website, some pages have a lower third section that I want to make editable and separate from the page itself.

I created a category called "lower-thirds" and created a new post(#38) with 2 custom fields.

Here's my code:

<?php
$post_id = 38;
$queried_post = get_post($post_id);
?>
                            
<div class="bottom_third_img">
<img src="<?php get_post_meta($post_id->ID,'bottom_third_head',true);?>" width="673" height="38">
</div>

<div class="bottom_third_txt">
        <div class="bottom_third_info">
           <h2><?php echo $queried_post->post_title; ?></h2>
           <p><?php echo $queried_post->post_content; ?></p>
</div>
<div class="bottom_third_picture">
            <img src="<?php get_post_meta($post_id->ID,'bottom_third_image',true);?>" alt="Alt Text Here..." width="161" height="100">                                
</div>
<div style="clear:both;"></div>
</div>

Open in new window


The custom field values are saved for post #38, but the img src tag is blank when I run this code.

The text and header is working as it is supposed to.

Any suggestions?

You already assigned a post ID.  Try this instead:

<?php
$post_id = 38;
$queried_post = get_post($post_id);
?>
                            
<div class="bottom_third_img">
<img src="<?php get_post_meta($post_id,'bottom_third_head',true);?>" width="673" height="38">
</div>

<div class="bottom_third_txt">
        <div class="bottom_third_info">
           <h2><?php echo $queried_post->post_title; ?></h2>
           <p><?php echo $queried_post->post_content; ?></p>
</div>
<div class="bottom_third_picture">
            <img src="<?php get_post_meta($post_id,'bottom_third_image',true);?>" alt="Alt Text Here..." width="161" height="100">                                
</div>
<div style="clear:both;"></div>
</div>
