Display repeater child field value

  • Hello,

    We are using Repeater Field as related posts. So, what we do is when we create a post/custom post, We select few other posts as related.
    We want to use it as widget with post title and it’s link. We use the following code.

    <?php while(has_sub_field('repeater_related_items')): ?>
    <?php $url = get_sub_field('related_item'); ?>
    <li><?php echo $title = get_the_title(url_to_postid($url)); ?></li>
    <?php endwhile;?>

    Is there a way to do something like this?


  • Hi @warpx,

    I reckon you will need to use our post object. 🙂

    It will return a WP post object that you can access using the standard WP functions. Eg:

    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>

    Checkout out our example here =>

  • Hello,
    I have the following code

    <?php $post_objects = get_field('repeater_related_items');
    if( $post_objects ): ?>
        <?php foreach( $post_objects as $post): // variable must be called $post (IMPORTANT) ?>
            <?php setup_postdata($post); ?>
                <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
                <span><?php the_field('repeater_related_items'); ?></span>
        <?php endforeach;?>
    <?php wp_reset_postdata(); ?>  
    <?php endif;?>
    <?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar('Main Sidebar') ) : endif; ?>

    The problem is that when I add this to sidebar other widget doesn’t work.

  • Hi @warpx

    Does your custom code work? Is it causing a PHP error to cut off the rest of the page?

    It’s possible that the setup_postdata function is causing the widgets to misbehave.

    Perhaps you can test this by removing the setup_postdata function and the wp_reset_postdata().

    Your loop code may not work as expected (due to the incorrect $post object), but it will help debug the issue.


  • Hello,
    Thanks for your help. I found the issue though, Simply removed
    <span><?php the_field('repeater_related_items'); ?></span>
