Dynamic Select Field not Populating

  • Hello,

    I used the this ACF tutorial/code to dynamically populate select fields from a repeater field in an option page. It works intermittently, but then stops working altogether. The labels and values dynamically populate the select field inside the ACF > Field Groups screen, but they do not appear at all inside the Options page select.

    Here is the code I’m using:

    function acf_load_color_field_choices( $field ) {
        // Reset choices
        $field['choices'] = array();
        // Check to see if Repeater has rows of data to loop over
        if( have_rows('global_colors', 'option') ) {
            // Execute repeatedly as long as the below statement is true
            while( have_rows('global_colors', 'option') ) {
                // Return an array with all values after the loop is complete
                // Variables
                $value = get_sub_field('global_color');
                $label = get_sub_field('global_color_name');
                // Append to choices
                $field['choices'][ $value ] = $label;
        // Return the field
        return $field;
    add_filter('acf/load_field/name=primary_color', 'acf_load_color_field_choices');
    add_filter('acf/load_field/name=secondary_color', 'acf_load_color_field_choices');

    Repeater field name is global_colors
    Subfields are global_color and global_color_name

    Select Field Names to grab the repeater field(s) are:
    primary_color and secondary_color

  • Got it figured out. Was a theme conflict.
