Shortcode for Advanced Custom Fields Repeater rows
Setup a repeater field, in this example we'll call it "example-row"
and you give it the following sub fields:
- example-name, text
- example-phone, text
- example-image, image, returns URL
in your post content setup the shortcode like this:
[acf_repeater field="example-row" sub_fields="example-name, example-phone, example-image"] User: %example-name% Phone: %example-phone% profile pic: %example-image% [/acf_repeater]
notice how the list of comma separated items within the
sub_field attribute become %variables% accessible within the repeater shortcode. This allows you to create a template row for your repeater. These items get trimmed so spaces around the commas in the list are ok.
You can NOT nest repeater shortcodes as library is right now. If you need to then I would recommend adding more shortcodes with different names but pointing to the same function like this:
add_shortcode("acf_repeater", "my_acf_repeater"); add_shortcode("acf_sub_repeater", "my_acf_repeater");
and now you can nest it.
[acf_repeater field="example-row" sub_fields="example-name, example-phone"] <div class="user">User: %example-name%</div><div class="phone">Phone: %example-phone%</div> [acf_sub_repeater field="example-sub-row" sub_fields="sub-item1, sub-item2"] %sub-item1% %sub-item2% [/acf_sub_repeater] You can put nested repeaters adjacent to each other, you just can't nest it again. For that you'll need to make more shortcodes [acf_sub_repeater field="example-sister-row" sub_fields="sub-item1, sub-item2"] %sub-item1% %sub-item2% [/acf_sub_repeater] [/acf_repeater]
TODO: Figure out a better way to handle nesting rows without having to create more copies of the shortcode.
