I'm using advanced custom fields taxonomy field to select a particular term of a custom taxonomy. I can generate the term ID based on the field but I can't display the link or the name of the term. Below is the code that I have that is generating a blank page

   $term_id = get_sub_field('expertise_category');
   $term_link = get_term_link( $term_id , 'expertise' );
   echo $term_link
  • What have you done to debug? "Blank page" usually means fatal error. What PHP errors, if any, are being generated? What output do you get from $term_id and $term_link (e.g. via var_dump())? Commented Nov 12, 2013 at 16:39
  • the content shows up till that point and then the page is blank. there are no errors as such. $term_id and $term_link both give the output I was expecting, an integer and a url. When put together I receive the error.

  • You'll need to enable debugging. (i.e. set WP_DEBUG to true in wp-config.php) Commented Nov 12, 2013 at 17:18
  • Looks OK for me. Are there any errors/warnings when you turn WP_DEBUG on? Commented Nov 12, 2013 at 17:21
  • No warnings with WP_debug. Where ever I place the code I get a blank page from that point on.

you need a semicolon at the end of your last line of code:

echo $term_link;
