Custom post type value in flexible content

  • Hi,

    In my wordpress installation I created a Flexible Content field called flexible_homepage_banners. This acf field has two layouts: banners_small and banner_large.
    Banners_small is a repeater which looks for a custom post type called banner: banner_large also looks at this custom post type.

    The code I put in my template is as follows:

    <?php if(have_rows('flexible_homepage_banners')) : ?>
    			<?php while(have_rows('flexible_homepage_banners')) : the_row(); ?>
    				<?php if(get_row_layout() == 'banners_small') : ?>
    					<?php if(have_rows('banners_small')) : ?>
    						<div class="banners__small">
    							<?php while(have_rows('banners_small')) : the_row(); ?>
    								<div class="banner banner--small">
    									kleine banner
    							<?php endwhile; wp_reset_query(); ?>
    					<?php endif; ?>
    				<?php endif; ?>
    				<?php if(get_row_layout() == 'banner_large') : ?>
    					<div class="banner banner--large">
    						grote banner
    				<?php endif; ?>
    			<?php endwhile; wp_reset_query(); ?>
    		<?php endif; ?>

    This works great; the correct amount of banners I select on the page is getting returned; so far so good.

    But here’s the tricky part, well tricky for me at least…

    How do I echo the content of those banners? Things like the_title returns the page title; not the title of the banner post type.

    I’m missing something simple, I think…

  • I’ve seem to fixed the issue by replacing the post object (custom post type) with a normal repeater.
    I think it’s still possible to use post objects in combination with the flexible content field, but for now my problem has been solved.

  • Hmz, sorry for the spam, but after some rethinking, my earlier reply did not in fact solve my problem. I do need to use the custom post type in my flexible content field…

    So back to my initial question; how do I get custom post type data like title, content and excerpt through a flexible content field?

  • You need to tell WP where to get the information from.

    To be honest, I can’t tell by your code above exactly what you mean. But there is an explanation on getting fields from the related post on the post object field doc

    You can either do this or you can supply the post ID to the WP functions.
