Add field to layout 'sub_fields' via php

  • I’m registering fields via php and the ‘parent’ field setting doesn’t seem to work for flexible_content > layouts > sub_fields. Should I use a different setting to add a re-usable field to a layout?

    Thanks!

  • I’m not user I’m understanding how you’re adding fields to the field group.

    I usually do this by generating the entire field group before registering but it sounds like you’re doing something different. Can you supply a sample of the code that you’re using?

  • I was trying to add the fields similar to the example in the documentation (http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/register-fields-via-php). See:

    acf_add_local_field(array(
    	'key' => 'field_1',
    	'label' => 'Sub Title',
    	'name' => 'sub_title',
    	'type' => 'text',
    	'parent' => 'group_1'
    ));

    I’m guessing this only works for fields in groups and not for ‘sub_fields’ in flexible content layouts?

    I’m trying to separate the fields within the groups and flexible layouts to make the code more manageable and possibly reuse the same field code in another instance.

  • Try setting ‘parent’ to the field key of the ‘layouts’ of the flex fields.

    Here is the portion of an exported field group with a flex field.

    
    'fields' => array(
        array(
            'key' => 'field_54fca97e88819',
            'label' => __('Panels'),
            'name' => 'blunt_panels',
            'prefix' => '',
            'type' => 'flexible_content',
            'instructions' => ''
            'required' => 0,
            'conditional_logic' => 0,
            'wrapper' => array(
                'width' => '',
                'class' => '',
                'id' => '',
            ),
            'button_label' => __('Add Panel'),
            'min' => '',
            'max' => '',
            'layouts' => array(
                array(
                    'key' => '54fca987f37a3', // <= try this key as the parent
                    'name' => '1_column_simple',
