I would love to have conditional logic extended to use the taxonomy field in order to conditionally show a field based upon if a taxonomy term is selected.
I was wondering if this had been added or if you knew a way to roll my own solution? Basically i’m looking to be able to hide and show fields based on the taxonomy selected.
When are you planning to add this feature to the plugin? I’d love to make use of it, and I’m kinda really needing it right now 😛
Alright! THanks a lot for your answer! (?)
Hi Elliot, there are news for “Conditional Logic using Taxonomy field” ?
It’s been quite a long time and seems there are still no news. It seems a bit of an important feature to me, that’s why it’s weird you haven’t managed to finally launch it on this amazing plug-in :S
I would love this feature too! Now, the only way to show or hide some fields based upon the taxonomy value is to make a radio button or checkbox field and use that as the conditional logic which seems a bit of a detour…
I’m after this functionality too. Surprised it hasn’t made it’s way into ACF (even as a premium addon) after all this time and the demand.
I’ve created a new ACF taxonomy (checkbox) field and linked it to a WordPress taxonomy. Next I added an ACF checkbox field, added conditional logic, but I don’t see the ACF taxonomy. So I’m not sure if that idea of a workaround was ever going to work?
You’re right, I didn’t even try it myself presuming this would work, but it doesn’t! You CAN make a whole new ACF group based upon a taxonomy term rule by the way, but that clutters up your ACF groups a lot…
+1 for this feature!
I’d like to add a vote for this as well.
That said, failing that, I’d like acf to include filters on conditionals in the same or similar manner as location choices. Currently it is fairly easy to write a plugin to hook into the location rule types, rule values, and rule match. As far as I can tell there is no way to accomplish with the conditional logic component. Of course, it is entirely possible that I’ve missed those filters.
In the meantime, I will probably just use http://www.elliotcondon.com/conditional-logic-for-advanced-custom-fields/
Any word on this feature?
+1 – this would be a great feature Elliot 🙂
Please, please add this feature. It is a needed key component in a project I’m working on right now. Oh, wouldn’t it be just magical if you were wrapping this up any day now?
One can dream, can’t they?
I’d like to add my vote for this… would be very very useful for a site I’m working on now. I’ll roll my own in the meantime – elliot, thanks so much for your hard work on what is without a doubt the most useful and innovative plugin in existence. Share the love!
To load the custom js I hooked into acf/input/admin_head, the docs here explain how to do that pretty well: http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/acfinputadmin_head/
After that it was just vanilla jQuery to do the heavy lifting.
Hope that helps
EDIT – unfortunately my code is pretty specific to the fields and post types involved so what I’ve written isn’t something you could really copypasta into your own project – but hiding / showing divs using jQuery is something you’ll be able to find plenty of help with online.
The only difficult part is finding out what the IDs of the fields and containing divs are, you’ll need to spend some time in Firebug to get an idea about what to target.
Would love to have this feature also.
This feature would be killer!
+1 to this
Almost two years already, and they still do not care much about this. Thanks!
