ACF Pro Flexible Content Sub-Fields are Null for new Field Groups

  • Hi all,
    I’ve read every thread on the forum that’s remotely related to this issue and I’m stumped. I have a couple of Field Groups utilizing Flexible Content fields which have been working fine. However, a new Field Group I’m working with is returning Null for all flex content sub fields.

    So far, I’ve tried deleting and recreating both the sub-fields and the flex content field itself with no luck. I’ve double checked I’m using ‘get_sub_field’ in my template. I’ve switched on debug mode and gotten no php errors. I’ve created a new Field Group with one Text field and a Flex content field with a Text sub-field and associated it with a different post type for testing.

    Same problem.

    Here’s my code:

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div class="container mb-1 text-xs-center">
      <div class="row">
          echo get_field('fix_text_field_1');
          echo get_sub_field('fix_text_field_2');
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    And here’s some screenshots for context:

    Front end screencap

  • When using a flex field you need to have a loop

    if (have_rows('flex_field_name')) {
      while (have_rows('flex_field_name')) {
        echo get_sub_field('fix_text_field_2');
  • *facepalm*
    No more coding to the point of exhaustion for me.

    Thanks very much John.
