When activated, the field group menu of the advanced custom field (ACF) extension has an additional rendering dialog-box.

These new options allow to (i) display the group fields value in the post or page content and to (i) dump the values as HTML meta-data.

Displaying field values in the content

The user choose to display at the top or bottom of the content, and defines the display as a piece of HTML code, with [acf field="name"] shortcode in order to display the corresponding field value. That simple.

Displaying field values as meta-data

The user choose display (or not) the in the HTML <head>..</head> section, using <meta name="$name" content="$value"/> tags, the data of a given group.

The $name is the field name (not its title).

The value is the one produced by the [acf field="name"] shortcode (i.e., the ACF get_field() function). For some non textual data types it is undefined. Multiples values are rendered as a comma ',' separated list.
