My first thought is that this would probably work if it weren’t a multiselect. It being a multiselect means that $value will be outputting an array of users. You’ll need to stick a foreach loop in there to confirm, something like:
<div class="module_col"> <h3><?php the_sub_field('module_title'); ?></h3> <?php // Get List of students to check for eligibility $students_list = get_sub_field('student_availability' ); // Set the default state to false, to be changed later $student_authorised = false; // Loop through students_list to check if user is allowed access foreach( $students_list as $student ) : // If user is in the list, set student_authorised to true and break out of loop //(no need to loop through everybody if they're the first user) if( in_array( $student_username, $student['nickname'] ) ) $student_authorised = true; break; endforeach; // If student is in the list, show download link if ( $student_authorised ) : ?> <a href="<?php the_sub_field('module_download'); ?>"> <button class="download_btn"> <span><i class="fa fa-cloud-download"></i>Download Module</span> </button> </a> <?php // if student not in list, show authentication error else : echo 'Not logged in'; endif; ?> </div>
