Hi,
I have setup a custom color picker field called "title_colour" which i have placed inline style on a <h2> tag, however its not displaying the hex value on the front end. This is the code im using:

<h3 style="color:<?php the_field('title_colour');?>">Notice Board</h3>

This is the results showing when i inspect the element:

<h3 style="colour:">Notice Board</h3>

This is the link i got the code from

http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/color-picker/

Is there something im doing wrong?

Thanks,
Andrew

you need to tell PHP to push out that string to output with the echo command -

<h3 style="color:<?php echo the_field('title_colour');?>">Notice Board</h3>

and there must be a string in the-  the_field('title_colour');

I have changed the code using the echo command above but it still doesn't appear. There are no specific options in ACF color picker so im assuming its generating a hex string ie #ffffff

Is there any other code i need to include?

Thanks,
Andrew

I have never used the AFC color picker, so I can not say what to do, sorry, but I looked and could not find The developers API for this AFC color picker. I did find this for code examples, but it's useless to me? -

Hi,

I worked it out. Realised that it wasn't pulling through the custom field value because the custom field was on the post page its pulling through on the home page, added the custom field to the home page and it worked.

Thanks for you help.
