  • Here’s what I think is the complete rundown:

    I’m using this URL:


    There’s nothing on that page except for:


    And just to confirm I’m using the correct field name, here’s the source code of the field in the backend when editing an image:

    <tr class="acf-field acf-field-number acf-field-64e143e0efab0" data-name="image_meta_image_id" data-type="number" data-key="field_64e143e0efab0">
    <td class="acf-label">
    <label for="acf-field_64e143e0efab0">Image ID</label></td>
    <td class="acf-input">
    <div class="acf-input-wrap"><input type="number" id="acf-field_64e143e0efab0" name="acf[field_64e143e0efab0]" value="8324" step="any"></div></td>

    And here’s the complete shortcode:

    function get_test_shortcode() {
      $image_meta_image_id = $_GET["image_id"];
      // echo $image_meta_image_id;
      // *********************** FROM ACF FORUM 09-01-2023 ***********************
      // first you do a query for attachments looking for the exact image_meta_image_id
      $args = array(
          'fields' => 'ids', // return only IDs to use in the next query
          'posts_per_page'    => 1, // there should only be one image
                                    // with this "image_meta_image_id"
          'post_type'      => 'attachment',
          'meta_query'    => array(
        			'key'	 	=> 'image_meta_image_id',
        			'value'	  	=> $image_meta_image_id
      $attachment_query = new WP_Query( $args );
      $attachments = $attachment_query->posts();
    echo "<pre>";
      var_dump( $attachments );
    echo "</pre>";
    add_shortcode( 'test_shortcode', 'get_test_shortcode' );

    The only thing showing on the page is the page title TESTING and bool(false).

    Do you see anything amiss?

    Thanks again!!
