Home Forums General Issues Custom Text Field Won't Output Shortcode Data Reply To: Custom Text Field Won't Output Shortcode Data

  • I tried adding that code from the example to functions.php but it had no effect. Let me know you what I’ve got:

    Custom field set to text area with the slug “shortcode_field”. It would be nice to filter just for that field rather than all textarea fields, but acf/load_value/name={$shortcode_field} doesn’t seem to be working, either.


    function text_area_shortcode($value, $post_id, $field) {
      if (is_admin()) {
        // don't do this in the admin
        // could have unintended side effects
      return $value;
    add_filter('acf/load_value/type=textarea', 'text_area_shortcode', 10, 3);

    Shortcode on page:
    [acf field="shortcode_field"]

    also tried:

    [acf field="{$shortcode_field}"]

    Appreciate your help!
