Note the site header image now reflects the category image and all entry titles are green. All the template functions can be used to load values from a taxonomy term, however, a second parameter is required to target the term.

Im hoping to avoid a dirty sql query, then having to cache it myself so that i dont have to make a special query on each page load. This taxonomy is not related to a particular post. Nor should it need to be in my opinion. I asked this question earlier this year and I never figured it out, but since you changed forums, I cant just continue my last post or go back and check it out.
Just to clarify, you are asking how do you load a custom field value from a taxonomy term when you know the taxonomy type and the term ID? I search all the forum with words taxonomy custom field. So I want to post its value in frontend? Will be appreciate if you colud give the examples or the link to docs or at least turn me to the right way. Thanks in advance. Hi blin.
You say that you have used a taxonomy field to select a taxonomy. Is this a single or multiple select field? I have a taxonomy field checkbox, so multiple items can be chosen inside a custom post type.
Thanks in advance P.

Help solve topics. Got it.The name could be any other, but starting with taxonomymeta makes it hard to break with other field names that ACF is manipulating. ACF will still be saving data on Options table too, in both sides now. Hey edirthanks for this. Good idea to automate! Here is an even better way.
It clears out the options table. And if ACF ever decides to start using the termmeta table you will be all set and can just remove these functions. All of these things will just slow down the site simply to keep the database clean.
This came about because I build plugins for ACF and using ACF functions in a plugin that accesses data using these functions can cause unintended side effects, like infinite loops and getting the wrong values. Is there any plans for ACF start using the termmeta table instead of filling up the options table?
I have not heard anything or seen anything one way or the other. I can only assume that the developer is working on a plan to incorporate term meta. Thanks so much for this code guys. Just to add, for infoircary-comyour code is great, but I have come across a couple of deficiencies:. Yes, tdmaloneI have actually ran into a number of cases where I have had to update my code.
It is actually a complex problem to solve. Because right now I am just going under the assumption they will soon, so I am only investing time in solving code issues as they arise in my use cases.
Rather than trying to go bulletproof. Anybody running into issues here? Great News Elliot!!! Thanks so much! Would it allow to update old values so to clean the options table safely? When can we expect the release? I was able to clear our my options tables without issue, after the ACF update ran. Did you manually clean up? That seems like a very manual process to track them all down. Yeah, I wish the database update built into ACF removed the options data. I had to do it manually, but it was easy, only because I prefix all my ACF fields, so I was able to write a query for that prefix.
There is also a backwards compatibility thing. If ACF wipes the options table then the update could break a site that does. So that sites keep working even if I need to disable ACF for some reason.
