Home Forums General Issues Shortcode usage with Gravity Forms Reply To: Shortcode usage with Gravity Forms

  • ACF only runs shortcodes on wysiwyg fields by default. In order to let the shortcode be run on another field you need to add a filter for that field and call do_shortcode
    the filter as I’m using it here is not documented. name and key are later additions.

    change acf_field_name to the field name where you want to include the shortcode. You may need to include the post id value in the shortcode you add to the acf field.

    add_filter('acf/format_value/name=acf_field_name', 'acf_field_do_shortcodes', 10, 3);
    function acf_field_do_shortcodes($value, $post_id, $field) {
      if ($value) {
       $value = do_shortcode($value);
      return $value;
