Thank you very much for your reply.
Sorry if my question was not clear enough.
I am not after a “front end” functionality.
I am trying to use the “advanced example in this tutorial but in a different way:
In this example, the function searches for posts that have custom fields populated with “red” and “orange”, and returns an array of them.
This will be fine for a small scale, but i am trying to replace more that 400 grids. this means 400 function like this.
I already achieved putting 2 multi select taxonomy ACFs. one for categories and one for tags.
What I am trying to to is to alter the function in the tutorial to say:
– inspect the taxonomy IDs in the 2 fields of the post i am editing
– query the database based on these taxonomy IDs
– return an array.
That way, i have only one function, and change the values per post, and get the corresponding array.
then we worry about how to show them as a grid.
Please advise if you need more information.
Very much appreciated.
