Wordpress Setting up WooCommerce Theme

Hi,

I am following along with the Wordpress Setting up WooCommerce theme tutorial and noticed that Zac has uploaded at advanced-custom-field.xml file to Custom Fields in our theme. All that I could find in the downloads for this class is/was an advanced-custom-fields-import.xml file, so I renamed that file accordingly. I can see that there are two fields that have been added to Custom Fields as a result, but there is no "projects" application appearing in the dashboard after the import. Am I missing something?

Thanks:-)

It's difficult to say why that happened. Did you also import the project-files.xml? I looked at both project-files.xml and advanced-custom-field-import.xml. I can see in both files there is a comment section at the top that says you must be logged in as the administrator, then go to tools to import to the admin panel.

The comment takes up the first 19 lines of each document. If you can't figure it out, you can always email Zac. His email is in the files: zac@teamtreehouse.com. Or you can contact him on twitter.

Thanks for responding Marissa. I did import both files and I am logged in as the administrator.

Maybe I'll try again tomorrow...Then maybe if I still can't figure it out I"ll try to email Zac.

Happy New Year!
