Create front-end form for repeater subfield

  • Hi guys,

    I have a CPT with a repeater field. I use the repeater field to create an image grid.

    I would like to create a front-end form to display only the content fields of a repeater element, is it possible using acf_form()?

    Thank you in advance,


  • Hi @jletesson,

    Could you please explain it to me again in more detail? If you want to display only the repeater fields in your form, you can use 'fields' => field_1234567890, option in your acf_form (field_1234567890 is the key of your acf field). This page should give you more idea about it:

    I hope this helps.

  • Hi James,

    Sorry my question wasn’t very clear.

    My repeater field contains a flexible field (with 5 different options containing each of them numerous of different fields).

    On the front-end, I would like to display only the form() for the flexible field.

    As I have many occurrence of the repeater on the page, I don’t want to display the form() for the whole repeater.

    Does it make sense?

    Thank you.

  • Hi @jletesson,

    I’m afraid that ACF doesn’t have a feature for that. If you want, you can hide several rows of the repeater using CSS. But this means that you won’t be able to edit the contents from front-end.

    Another idea is to use the “collapsed” option on the repeater.

    I hope this helps.
