Okay so I think the shortcode thing is probably in the right direction.
Here’s what I’m trying right now. I created a custom post type called “Galleries”. The only field group for it is the repeater that I mentioned earlier.
In order to insert a gallery in the middle of a blog post, my plan is to have a shortcode that injects one post (the custom Gallery Post ) into another.
I just trie ddoing this using this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-content-shortcodes/
But it only seems to work for injecting The Content (from the WYSIWYG editor) and won’t pull in anything else from the php loop etc.
Any way of doing that? Or am I going to make my own shortcode etc using the codex?
