  • Hi all, and John,

    I am looking to do something I think is this, but not totally sure: I need one field the user chooses one value from, that is a combination of posts of category “dogs”, and also of specific categories themselves, “dogs”, “cats”.

    It seems that the Post Object and Taxonomy are the right choices, now I just need to merge them into one select. This field will be on the options page.

    I am trying the code John shared before:

    $all = array_merge(
             get_field('relationship_1', false, false),
             get_field('relationship_2', false, false));
    $args = array(
      'post_type' => 'speakers',
      'posts_per_page' => -1,
      'post__in' => $all,
      'orderby' => 'title'
    $speakers = new WP_Query($args);
    // post loop

    But, trying I’m unsure how to go from
    $speakers = new WP_Query($args);

    to the new field of merged fields – I get syntax error with the snippet in my functions.php. Do i need to instead assign the merged array $args into a new ACF select field? I probably create that field, and assign the array to it?

    The data will be used on many different posts, and archive pages, that’s why it’s in my ACF Options page.
