Showing Custom Post type within another custom post type
I've created a few custom post types for my real estate page (i.e. Listings, Agents, & Neighborhoods). I'm having some trouble understanding how to display a specific agent post type within a single listing post type page.
Under my listing post type, I've created a few ACF fields, one being a checkbox or dropdown for agents. When an agent is selected from the checkbox / dropdown menu, I'd like it to recognize, which agent that is and display the information for that agent from the other custom post type of agents. I hope this makes sense.
I'm working in the single-listings.php and have a 2 column layout. The left column will have all the information about the real estate listing, address, pictures, description, etc. The right column, I want to display the agent picture, name, phone, & email based on who was selected when that custom listing was made.
I hope this makes sense!
Since you are using ACF already, I would suggest using ACF's relationship field. This way you will be able to create a relationship between your custom post types. please see the docs below:
To clarify more. I'd like to dynamically populate the information here depending on which agent was checked/selected when creating the listing.
<div class="listings-agent"> <h1>Listing Agent</h1> <img src="<?php this would be php code pulling featured image of selected agent ?>"> <h2><?php this would be php pulling Full Name of agent selected ?></h2> <h3><?php this would be php pulling phone number of agent selected ?></h3> <h3><?php this would be php pulling email of agent selected ?></h3> </div>
Keep in mind, that this information would be pulled from another custom post type other than the current page post type of "listings" that we would be on.
