How to Use Advanced Custom Fields and Genesis Framework?

I am having a bear of a time getting Advanced Custom Fields to work in my Genesis frameword sites.

The documentation (and support) is not particularly user friendly.

Do I need to add anything to the funtions.php file (or any other file) to get my custom fields to display in the front end?

I have tried using the code in the documentation, namely:

<p><?php the_field('field_name'); ?></p>

and also using the short codes version:

[acf field="field_name"]

And neither one works.

It appears the custom fields ARE being stored in the database. when I go to an edit post page (or an edit category page), I see the input field for the custom fields.

But I cannot seem to get them to display properly.

BTW: I tried posting on the ACF support forum, but right now, I can't even get the support forum to load. I think the ACF site is having problems.

Thanks in advance.
