  • I spent yesterday working through this exact same question.

    Here is what I found to work, applied to your case. Any PHP pros are welcome to optimise this. Note that I haven’t figured out the if statements, you should be able to get that working though.

    // Get repeater value
    $repeater = get_field('traditional_dining');
    // Obtain list of columns
    foreach ($repeater as $key => $row) {
    	$the_website[$key] = $row['website'];
    	$the_name[$key] = $row['name'];
    	$the_address[$key] = $row['address'];
    	$the_phone_number[$key] = $row['phone_number'];
    	$the_map_url[$key] = $row['map_url'];
    // Sort the data by restaurant name column, ascending
    array_multisort($the_name, SORT_ASC, $repeater);
    // Display newly orded columns
    // Unsure if this is the optimal way to do this...
    foreach( $repeater as $row ) { ?>
    <div class="biz-module">
    	<h2><a href="<?php echo $row['website']; ?>" title="Visit the website for <?php echo $row['website']; ?>"><?php echo $row['name']; ?></a></h2>
    	<h3><a href="<?php echo $row['map_url']; ?>" title="Find <?php echo $row['name']; ?> on the map"><?php echo $row['address']; ?></a></h3>
    	<h4><?php echo $row['phone_number']; ?></h4>
    <?php } ?>
