Default Values for Repeater (Image)

  • I’m wondering how to include a repeater default value array where each of one makes use of Images as sub-field
    Here is an example of how are we trying to implement, but it does not work with images:

    add_filter('acf/load_value/key=field_map_section', 'acf_load_section_map_default', 10, 3);
    function acf_load_section_map_default($value, $post_id, $field) {
        if ($value === false) {
    		$value = array(
    				'field_city_country_map' => 'Santiago de Chile, CH',
    				'field_image_city_country_map' => get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/images/icons/ch-sc-icon.png',
    				'field_point_position_x_map' => '27',
    				'field_point_position_y_map' => '27',
        return $value;

    Do you have any idea how to achieve this?.

  • To preset values of the repeater you need to use field keys for the array indexes.

  • Hey John, thank you for your kindly response, can you please share an example of how to do field keys for the image field?

  • If you want to set the default value for an image field use an acf/prepare_field filter (use the field key variant) and set $field[‘default_value’] with the attachment ID of the image.
