I’d like to have two fields in a repeater. One will be a taxonomy selection and the other will be a post link selection. I would like the range of posts available for selection to be filtered by the selection in the taxonomy field.
Now I know that there is a post object field type, which lets you filter the post selection by taxonomy and post type, but as I understand it it has to be ‘hard coded’ from the outset. I’d like to be able to filter the posts by taxonomy on the fly.
This kind of trigger AJAX functionality does not yet exist for the ACF plugin.
You can however, use the relationship field to filter the posts by a taxonomy.
However, you will not be able to save the taxonomy as a sub field value.
This said, it would be possible to write some custom jQuery which triggered a custom AJAX call on change of the taxonomy select field. Your AJAX call could then query and return post data which you would then update the post_object field with.
Hope that helps.
