Edit certain repeater row with acf_form()



    I have a field group with a textbox (record_date) and a repeater (daily_record) in it.

    On the front end, I can display everything fine in a table and edit the repeater fields no problem with a modal popup.

    What I would like to do is where it says “BTN HERE” on the right side next to each row from the repeater (in the table), have an edit button to popup a similar modal with acf_form() but to edit JUST THAT ROW.

    I can’t figure out how to segregate that row. I tried using the FIELDS option in ACF_FORM() but couldn’t get it to work with the repeater.

    I know it has something to do with telling which row in the array to use, but can’t get that far…

    I can grab the row number (0,1,2,3 etc) using a FOR loop for my repeater, but don’t know how to tell the acf_form to load just that row.

        $records = get_field('daily_record');
        // loop through repeater
        if( $records):
            foreach( $records as $i => $row ):

    Any help would be appreciated!


  • Hi @teamawesome

    I’m afraid acf_form() doesn’t have that kind of feature. If you want to do it, you need to create your own form and handler, then use the update_sub_field() function to update the row. Unfortunately, this needs an advanced code. I suggest you hire a developer to help you out with it, and I’d recommend looking for one on or I’m sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thanks 🙂
