Cannot use filters

  • Hello,
    i’m trying to use ACF in my project; it seems good but i have a problem with filters.

    I have added a Field group adding a True/False field in Post type called “Show in news”.

    I have defined a new custom type called News and i need to insert a select field with
    only the Post that have flagged the “Show in news”.
    I cannot select them: there are no items in conditional logic because they are different
    field groups.

    Am i doing wrong anything or is it an ACF limitation?

    Thanks in advance and greetings

  • Hi @cdiscla,

    Assuming you use the relationship field for selecting the posts you can use this filter to modify the query to only fetch posts with show_in_news set to 1/true:

  • Thank you very much Jonathan,
    your response helped me a lot.

    Here is the code i’ve added in function.php and it runs fine:

    function my_relationship_query( $args, $field, $post )
        return $args;
    // filter for a specific field based on it's name
    add_filter('acf/fields/relationship/query/name=related_articles', 'my_relationship_query', 10, 3);
  • No problem @cdiscla

    glad it worked out fine! I hope it’s just formatting of the posting that makes your end quotation mark different (it would probably break the code).
