Home Forums Feature Requests Checkbox field to tag


Checkbox field to tag

  • Hi there,

    I have a website in which I filter posts through tags, and I have to change them often (they are posts about movies in which I put tags on which streaming platform they are, and as soon as they are no longer available, I have to remove the tag corresponding to that post).

    It’s a tedious process, and I wish I could do it through ACF. To do this, I need to create a checkbox custom field with the names of the streaming platforms (Netflix, HBO, etc), and then manage to convert the checkboxes into tags (and if I uncheck one of those checkboxes in the future, the tag is automatically deleted). Do you know if there is any way to do this?

  • If I am understanding correctly. I would create an options page. On this I would create a taxonomy field for tags. On this options page I would select all of the active tags. Then when I get the field from acf I would use an acf/fields/taxonomy/query filter to filter out (or filter “IN” with “include” argument) so that ACF only returns active terms.
