Custom Location Rules for Media types

  • Hi ACF Forum

    Can anyone help me with this please.

    I’ve tried to set up a filter where I can display a field set only when editing an audio file in the Media Library (as opposed to pdfs, images, docs etc)

    I looked at the documentation in the ACF website and found the page “Custom location rules” – managed to sort the “Add Custom Field Types” by adding the following code to the site’s functions file.

    
    add_filter('acf/location/rule_types', 'acf_location_rules_types');
    function acf_location_rules_types( $choices )
    {
        $choices['Other']['media'] = 'media';
    
    	return $choices;
    }
    

    aHowever when trying to edit the example of the “Add Custom Values” I changed the ACF example (which use users) to the following:

    
    add_filter('acf/location/rule_values/media', 'acf_location_rules_values_media');
    function acf_location_rules_values_media( $choices )
    {
        $media = get_media();
     
        if( $media )
        {
            foreach( $media as $media )
            {
                $choices[ $media->data->ID ] = $media->data->display_name;
            }
        }
     
        return $choices;
    }
    

    I had to guess a lot of it and it came back saying “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /data04/records/public_html/wp-content/themes/Futureproof/functions.php on line 37″

    Could anyone tell me what this piece of code should be. As I said at the beginning of this post I’m looking to display a field set only when editing an audio file in the Media Library and not display the field set when looking at pdfs, images and other media types.

    Many thanks

    Phil
