John, thanks for your testing.
I have checked my database and also checked if I have double field names (because I created the fields via PHP). No errors, no doubles.
To be sure, I deleted all entries from the database belonging to my options page (no worries, I’m in a testing environment).
After that, I added two new colors to my repeater and checked the database again. Everything is fine.
But I was surprised when I tried to read and print the repeater field this way
<?php $test = get_field('MY_REPEATER', 'MY_OPTIONS_PAGE'); echo "<pre>"; print_r($test); echo "</pre>"; ?>
I only get the number
2, the count of repeater rows.
Then I create a repeater with fields in the backend (not via PHP) and tested this. And yes, it works!!!
I exported this field groups to get the code and copy this into my functions.php to create the field groups via PHP to test if I make any mistakes on my first try.
And that’s the next surprise: Now it does not work!!!
With the above test I only get the number of the repeater rows and no array.
So it must have to do anything with registering the field groups via PHP.
