Thanks a lot for your answer.
Somehow I’m a little surprised that it is so easy to display ACF values anywhere in the front-end, yet not so easy to display them in the backend (well, I’m kind of a noob and don’t understand the system behing custom fields, so that may be why I find it surprising).
What actually surprises me is that more people don’t need this functionality (I had googled a lot before posting).
Anyway, I’m starting to wonder if I can reach my goal with ACF alone. I’ll tell you but it’s long so if you don’t answer that’s fine 😉
– I have a “product” custom post type with custom fields, including many internal ones.
– I have a “proposals” custom post type with a repeater field to add products.
=> I want, when a product is added in my Proposal post, to display info related to that product on the backend.
Example, if I add “Hotel XYZ” in the proposal:
– It would add some internal warning message related to Hotel XYZ below the table. Can be read-only, no problem.
– It would also add the Hotel XYZ description (as a field in another repeater field, I suppose). However, I want this description to be editable (so, display the product description as default value of the field).
I played around with the Clone and Relationship features but couldn’t reach the results i wanted…
