I’m using ACF to have a predfined form to write posts.
As mu site is multilingual I would like to display the ACF field label with a shortcode on my post, and when the language is changed, it will take the right label (I use WPML).
For example, my custom field is :
FRENCH : Type de film = drame
UK : Movie Type = drama
I want to have only one post that can be translated automatically using the WPML plugin (My custom fields are translated, so in the post editor I can switch between UK and FR version). The problem is for the labels/titles of the fields that I cannot pass as shortcodes in the post.
Now, my post is like :
Type de film = [acf field="type"]
But I have to change the label “type” for each page translated, I would prefer to have a shortcode like [acf field label] that can display the field label which is translated in the 2 languages.
I wish I am clear enough !
Other problem : the shortcode to display the field value is not working on the post excerpt, it display the shortcode instead of the value… Is there a way to use the shortcode in the post excerpt ?
I’m not really familiar to the PHP code editing so if I can use shortcode in the WYSIWYG panel it is better for me.
Thank you for your help !
