Hello there,

Thank you for asking.

You can add your custom field URL through Dashboard > Types > Employee Info. Then pick “URL” field from Available fields box.

To print out the URL with an icon, open widgets/fp-employees.php file, then insert your code within these lines. To get the URL value, use the following snippet.

$custom_link = get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), 'field-slug', true );

Adjust the field-slug to your own.

I hope this reply helps.



As you are editing the core theme’s file, you should take at your own risk. The changes you have made will be overridden once the theme is updated in the future.
