Custom Fields Usage

Custom fields are used to show editable information on posts, pages, or any custom post types. Impreza has built-in custom fields, like the "Page Layout" box. To create your own additional fields we recommend using the Advanced Custom Fields plugin. Read an example of usage below.

How to add "Subtitle" to posts via Advanced Custom Fields #

  1. Go to Impreza > Addons admin page and install the "Advanced Custom Fields" via a single click

How to show Custom Field values in other elements #

Some theme elements may use dynamic values via {{custom_field_name}} shorthand. Dynamic value takes the value from a custom field of the current post (page, product, etc.). If the custom field doesn't exist, then returns an empty string.

For example, the Real Estate demo has the following ACF fields:

If you add Text element with

{{storeys}}-storey house with living area of {{living_area}} sqm, with {{bedrooms}} bedrooms, located on a plot of {{land_area}} sqm.

text into "House Page" Content template:

After that every house page will display values from its custom fields, like:
