    We want to be able to display JUST the values of the the custom fields. No CSS, or goofy tables and styling.

    On a previous post, you indicate there is shortcode that will meet our needs:

    Specifically, you write: “you can show any specific custom field using short-code [wpdm_cf custom field name], for example if you just want to show the value for “File Types”, simply use [wpdm_cf File Types] , which will show the value “HTP, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, PNG”.

    When we use this shortcode per your instructions, it does not work: [wpdm_cf CityName]

    We also tried this shortcode and it does not work: [wpdm_cf City Name]

    When we use this shortcode: [wpdm_acf-CityName] we see a formatted table THAT WE DO NOT WANT.

    In a template, can you hide custom fields that are empty?

    I added a custom field to a link template used in the directory/search add-on. For items that do not have data in this custom field, the custom field’s shortcode displays in search results.

    I want to be able to hide most of the package settings from showing on the Package settings page and the package page.
    That is i want to be able to HIDE the following.
    Link Label:
    Stock Limit:
    Download Limit:
    / user
    Reset Limit for All Users
    View Count:

    Download Count:

    Package Size:

    Allow Access:

    Individual File:
    Don’t Allow Inidividual File Download Allow Inidividual File Download
    Link Template:

    Reset Key

    I don’t want want users to see most of these because it confuses most of them. I just want users to have a straight forward upload process without complicated stuff. And i dont want it also show on the front page/Package Page.
    Can i achieve this with this addon? If not, which addon can i use to achieve this?

    Hey, when I put a TextArea it removes some HTML formatting.
    I’m using those fields into my page template to display blocks of HTML data in a certain way, but it removes the   tag and some other probably too.

    Any workaround?

    Also, how can you add logic in page template to check if custom field has value?
