Direct download link from file field (array) within repeater field

  • I am trying to create a download link (browser downloads link on click) from a file field within a repeater.

    When a file field is set to ID, this works fine using the example code:

    $file = get_field(‘file’);
    if( $file ):
    $url = wp_get_attachment_url( $file ); ?>
    ” >Download File
    <?php endif;

    However, setting the file field to return an array, the <?php echo $file[‘url’]; ?> and <?php echo $file[‘id’]; ?> only links to the post page or attachment.

    I need both a link to the attachment page and a link to direct download.

    Can someone advise me if this is possible and share an example code? This is my current working code linking to the attachment page only.


    // Check rows exists.
    if( have_rows(‘game_assets’) ):

    // Loop through rows.
    while( have_rows(‘game_assets’) ) : the_row();

    // Load file field value.
    $file = get_sub_field(‘game_file’ );
    if( $file ):

    if( $file[‘type’] == ‘image’ ) {
    $icon = $file[‘sizes’][‘thumbnail’];

    // Begin caption wrap.
    if( $caption ): ?>
    <div class=”wp-caption”>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <div class=”file-wrap”>
    <div class=”file-content”>
    <div class=”file-image”>” width=”20″ height=”auto”/></div>
    <div class=”file-text-wrap”>
    <div class=”file-name”><?php echo $file[‘filename’]; ?></div>
    <div class=”file-type”><p>File type: <?php echo $file[‘type’]; ?></p></div></div>
    <div class=”download-wrap”>
    ” target=”_blank”>Download

    <?php endif;

    // End loop.

    // No value.
    else :
    // Do something…
    endif; ?>
