Home Forums ACF PRO Repeater Fields Comparison Reply To: Repeater Fields Comparison

  • It is a directory based website, so companies will list and edit their data from the front end only.

    If I go with a hierarchical post type where the top level post was the “Provider” and each “Plan” was a child post, how to link these parent and child post from front end form.

    really I am struggling here, would you provide me some ideas, what is the best way to start this.

    The data will be submitted and edited by companies from the front-end, they can’t access back-end.

    My main post type is Broadband Company, it has all the data with broadband plans.

    I want to create a two archive pages ONE for Broadband companies and SECOND is Broadband plans, the two archive pages have filters with acf data.

    Single broadband page with company data and all it’s broadband plans and user reviews

    I can create archive pages with filters and single company data with plans (If I use Repeater fields for Plans)

    If I use child post for plans, how company will submit the plan from front end. And in plans archive page user click on any page he will redirect to company page not to plan page.

    And users will review the company in single company page in review form he can select which plan (dynamically populate from the plans) is he going to review.

    So which one is best, relationship post types or parent and child post or repeater fields.

    The main problem to me is front end forms and user review forms.

    I don’t want to start this in wrong way.

    Would you provide me some ideas.
