Error trying to out File field on front end

  • I have created a custom “File” field for user profiles named “attachment”.

    I’m now trying to output the filename and URL of the File field on the front end, for the currently logged in user. This is the code I’m using, pulled from the official documentation page for the File field, plus another forum post about pulling fields for the current user is:

    if ( is_user_logged_in() ) :
    	$user_id = get_current_user_id();
    	$file = get_field( 'attachment', "user_".$user_id );
    	if($file): ?>
        <a href="<?php echo $file['url']; ?>"><?php echo $file['filename']; ?></a>
    	<?php endif;

    On the front end, it returns the error:
    Warning: Illegal string offset ‘filename’ in /home/jxj2goc/public_html/wp-content/themes/bricks/includes/elements/code.php(157) : eval()’d code on line 8

    Anyone know how to fix this?

  • OK figured it out. Need to set field’s return value to “File array”.
