Show ACF field from custom taxonomy and display on the single template
I have a custom post type called products, which I have attached a custom taxonomy called Product Categories.
On each of the Product Categories, I have used Advanced Custom Fields to add fields such as product category colour, logo etc.
Initially, I’m trying to display the Product Category colour as a background colour for all of the products that fall inside that specific Product Category.
I’ve tried using the same method as I used to display the colour on the actual Product Category page (taxonomy-product_category.php), by adding this to the top of the page:
// get the current taxonomy term $term = get_queried_object(); // vars $category_colour_primary = get_field('category_colour_primary', $term);
and then referencing it later on like this:
<div class="container-flex" style="background-color:<?php echo $category_colour_secondary; ?>;"> </div>
This works great on each of the Product Category pages, but doesn’t seem to work on the single page template (single-products.php).
I feel I need to get the name (or terms?!) of the current product’s taxonomy and then display them as usual…
I’ve come to a bit of a dead end and I’m unsure what I need to try next…
Can anyone point me in the right direction? I feel I’ve tried a million things, but can’t quite get my head around it. Thanks for looking!
