    Hello,
    I am making a Contacts Options page with ACF Pro, the reason, I want to have one location for all the contact info of the insitution, that I can then later pull from wherever. And If there are updated to data, I do it in one place.

    Headline block does not seem to see the options post type. Am I missing something, or is it a missing feature? ๐Ÿ˜€

    best,
    E

    PS
    can be done via shortcode like so [acf field=”field_slug” post_id=”options”] but would be neat if GB could do it UI way.

    Hi Elvis,

    I don’t think it will work.
    It requires the equivalent of a $post_id to be part of the get_fieldrequest.
    The GB Block element would expect the Custom Field to exist on the actual page or post.

    Yeah, I forgot options pages are not post types.
    Decided to make a CPT instead.
    Looks almost the same as options page, and its available to Headline Dynamic Data.
    Thanks though.

    Yes, I think CPT is a better choice in this case ๐Ÿ™‚
