ACF repeater – retrieve fields

  • Hi there,

    I’m using ACF + the repeater add-on and I have a problem I can’t solve :

    – back end : a page named ‘file’ with a repeater field
    – in this repeater field, two file fields named ‘file_pdf’ and ‘file_html’
    – front end : with an url such as ‘/file/?ref=1234’ I retrieve the corresponding repeater

    I want to be able to attach a PDF file and a HTML file to each repeater.

    My code :

    $current_ref = $_GET['ref'];
    $current_ref_file_query = $wpdb->get_results( "SELECT * FROM {$wpdb->prefix}posts WHERE post_name = '$current_ref' LIMIT 1");

    But I can’t retrieve all the sub fields attached to this repeater…
    Here’s what I can retrieve :

    [ID] => 233
    [post_author] => 1
    [post_date] => 2019-04-28 19:12:58
    [post_date_gmt] => 2019-04-28 17:12:58
    [post_content] =>
    [post_title] => MS-CR-17
    [post_excerpt] =>
    [post_status] => inherit
    [comment_status] => open
    [ping_status] => closed
    [post_password] =>
    [post_name] => ms-cr-17
    [to_ping] =>
    [pinged] =>
    [post_modified] => 2019-04-28 19:12:58
    [post_modified_gmt] => 2019-04-28 17:12:58
    [post_content_filtered] =>
    [post_parent] => 134
    [guid] =>
    [menu_order] => 0
    [post_type] => attachment
    [post_mime_type] => application/pdf
    [comment_count] => 0

    As I said, I can’t retrieve the HTML field (sub_field(‘file_html’))… Please somebody can help me ?

    Thanks a lot !

  • I have no idea by looking at your code what it should be doing, but just guessing…

    post_name = '$current_ref'

    are you sure that both of them have the same “post_name”


    LIMIT 1

    If they are the same name this will limit the query to only getting 1 result.

  • Hi,

    thank you for your reply.
    Yes, both fields of repeat has the same “post_name”.
    Not sure to understand what you’re talking about the limit.

    I tried to make a sketch explaining what I want to achieve :

    Thanks again.

  • You have the limit on the query == 1, that means that it will only get 1 result.

    I’m not sure what repeater ID you are referring to since it is not possible to query a repeater field or how that ID put in the “ref” value translates into a post name used in your query.
