WordPress How to Build a WordPress Theme Content Strategy with WordPress Adding Custom Content to the Site

6,475 Points

How can you get your Custom Fields to display on the Custom Post we've designed?

Since completing the steps in Adding Custom Content to WP, I have been unable to get entered content to display properly on my Project post. The only piece of information from my entered content that displays is the Post Title.

Do I need to build a Custom Template to have Custom Content display?

Could my theme be interfering?

Thanks in advance for any support you can offer.

As opposed to the_content(); which you would use on a regular post/page.
