I am absolutely beginner to PHP and looking for some help. I am trying to create a restaurant directory where I was able to get the output to display under each post in category page using:
Options: <?php echo implode(' | ', get_field('field_options')); ?>
I am using below acf (checkboxes)
out : Outdoor
wifi : WIFI Available
smoke : Smoking Area
Now all I need is to add a group of checkbox fields to my category page to filter the posts by above options.
I tried to follow “Creating a WP archive with custom field filter” tutorial but the method used was radio buttons.
I would really appreciative if I can know what exactly to put in function.php file and category.php file.
Attached image will tell you what exactly I am trying to achieve.
Creating a checkbox input is very similar to creating a radio input. Please checkout some online tutorials to learn more about this.
I would love to help, but this question is far from a support issue, so I am unable to pride any support for this.
Good luck creating your custom page, and please feel free to ask any specific ACF related questions.
The tutorial in question shows a lot of complicated code, which I do no offer my services to login and debug.
Please debug your code line by line to ensure all variables and values are as expected.
Many plugins / theme code can modify and cause issues with the posts returned by a WP_Query, so perhaps it is possible that another source is causing no posts to be found.
Most likely, it is a logic error in the code you have written that is causing the WP_Query to find no posts.
I did a clean install and everything seems to be working now. Please help me with only one thing.
I replaced radio buttons to check boxes from ACF, resulting, I can choose more than one bedroom for a house.
For example, I have
House 1 : Checkbox 1 selected
House 2 : Checkbox 2 selected
House 3 : Checkbox 3 and checkbox 1 selected
Now form archive page, when I select checkbox 1, I only see House 1, where I should be getting House 3 as well.
Could you be kind enough to tell me where/what to add/replace the code?
