  • Hi @flyingeagle,

    ACF does not offer any way of overriding this so the best solution would be to create your own custom shortcode to display the value as an unordered list. Copy the following code to your functions.php file:

    function custom_acf_shortcode( $atts ) {
    	// extract attributs
    	extract( shortcode_atts( array(
    		'field'			=> '',
    		'post_id'		=> false,
    		'format_value'	=> true
    	), $atts ) );
    	$value = get_field( $field, $post_id, $format_value );
    	if( is_array($value) )
    		$ul = '<ul>';
    		foreach($value as $val) {
    			$ul .= '<li>' .$val. '</li>';
    		$ul .= '</ul>';
    		$value = $ul;
    	return $value;
    add_shortcode( 'custom_acf', 'custom_acf_shortcode' );

    Then use it as follows: [custom_acf field="field_name" post_id="123"]

    Hope this helps 🙂
