I am trying to create a basic Tour Date widget.

When the user clicks on the Tour Date Tab from the admin dashboard I want them to be presented with five fields.

  1. Date
  2. Venue
  3. City, State or Country
  4. Ticket Link
  5. Share Link

I've figured out how to add a custom tab after experimenting with ACF and CMB2 only to realize that the Wordpress codex does indeed explain the basic process here:

http://codex.wordpress.org/Adding_Administration_Menus

but not knowing that it was called an "administration menu" and searches for Dashboard Tab, Admin Tab, Admin Menu in Google yielded surprisingly confusing results. ;) I am up to Step three and while I was successfully able to create these fields with ACF and linking that to a custom post type(see below) I don't know how to have the same info appear in this new Administrative menu page(Tour) that I've made.

<?php
/** Step 2 (from text above). */
add_action( 'admin_menu', 'my_plugin_menu' );

/** Step 1. This builds the menu in the admin area */
function my_plugin_menu() {
    add_menu_page( 'Tour Dates', 'Tour', 'manage_options', 'my-unique-identifier', 'my_plugin_options', 'dashicons-book', 6 );
}

/** Step 3. */
function my_plugin_options() {
    if ( !current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) )  {
        wp_die( __( 'You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.' ) );
    }
    echo '<div class="wrap">';
    echo '<p>Here is where the form would go if I actually had options.</p>';
    echo '</div>';
}
?>

and the code I was able to link up to ACF in order to do this two levels down within the Post option:

// Register Custom Post Type function custom_post_type() {

$labels = array(
    'name'                  => _x( 'Tour Dates', 'Post Type General Name', 'text_domain' ),

register_post_type( 'tour', $args );

    }
    add_action( 'init', 'custom_post_type', 0 );
