Can I display fields from user profile, taxonomy term or options page?

Advanced Views supports all the field sources provided by your chosen meta vendor.

For example, if you’re using ACF (Advanced Custom Fields), you can access fields from option pages, user profiles, terms, comments, and menus.

You can refer to the documentation for the specific list of supported field sources for your meta vendor.

Can I display fields inside the Gutenberg Query Loop?

You can use the View shortcode inside the Gutenberg Query Loop element.

Please make sure you’ve added it via the built-in Shortcode block, as it won’t work properly with other block types, like Code or Custom HTML.

Excellent plugin that does what is promised. And very good + fast support when a little bug occurred

This plugin worked perfectly for setting up pages with custom posts filtered by a category, with good freedom for creating different templates for different pages. When we ran into an issue with taxonomy filters, the team was responsive and deployed a fix within the next day. Kudos, team.
