  • Hi Yormario, I believe you’re almost there! It looks like you are using the wrong field function for your situation.

    The solution would be to use get_field() which will allow you to get the input and store it in a variable to return.

    If you want a more in depth explanation, the reason your ACF Fields are not showing in the right order is because the_field() doesn’t return a value, but echos it. It is essentially the same as doing echo get_field();

    This means the values aren’t stored and instead are echoed in the order they are called, before the filter function is returned.

    Also, small, but important difference you are missing the $ for the second field variable in the return statement.
