  3. 3.
    Paste the shortcode in your page, post or theme section where you want to show your View.

    Click “Update” to save your post.

Note: To display fields from the options page insert "options" in object-id in your View shortcode. E.g. [acf_views view-id="54" object-id="options" name="admin custom fields"]
Note: To display fields for the current user profile insert "user" in object-id in your View shortcode.
E.g. [acf_views view-id="82" object-id="user" name="account fields"]
