I have a repeater field called slides. In it I have slides, that each have a title and an image. These slides get added to a page as a slideshow. Not terribly complicated.
I need to add an id or random string to each slide, so I can jump to the slide based on a url:
Will jump to the 5th slide that has the id of a1b2c3.
I have the code to do the slide selection. Now I just need help adding an id to each custom field.
I can’t use the slide number, as it’s stored in the database, because the order might change. I can’t use the title or image id, because they might change.
Any suggestions on how to add a unique id or string to each repeater field? Thanks!
Thanks. That’s actually the first thing I tried. The problem with those solutions is the “id” changes if you change the order. I want to link to a slide (my sub_field), even if I change the order.
I looked at the template for making an addon. It seems like making a unique id custom field would be very easy.
Here you go:
I think I changed all of 4 lines 🙂
EDIT: Never mind, I then realised I had to do that myself in the php 🙂 All good.
I’m sorry to be such a noobie, I’ve added the plugin, activated it, and upon pressing “Update” a unique id gets generated for each repeater row. However, how do I now create a hyperlink to that specific row? The unique id does not seem to have been added anywhere to the DOM?
