Fields in Database but not in admin page

  • Hey all,

    I have an issue, I manged to add some images programatically into a repeater field using update_sub_field, this works as I can see them in the database, however I cannot see them in the “edit page” of the post or in the post if I try to echo out the values.

    What is going on? Is this a bug, is there a workaround? I can literally look at the repeater entries in the database but they dont show up in wordpress.

  • I’ve been looking into this a bit since I commented in the other topic. I found an interesting topic on stackoverflow. They suggest using update_field() on the repeater, supplying an array of values instead of trying to add sub fields.

    With this in mind I took a look at the documentation for update_field() This is actually covered there, it says taxonomy, but it could be used on a post, taxonomy is just used so that the example has a duel purpose.

    *  add a repeater row on a taxonomy!!!
    $field_key = "repeater_field";
    $post_id = "event_123";
    $value = get_field($field_key, $post_id);
    $value[] = array("sub_field_1" => "Foo", "sub_field_2" => "Bar");
    update_field( $field_key, $value, $post_id );

  • I have exactly the same problem: the fields are in the database (which I don’t have access to), but they don’t appear on the page. How can I edit these? Or can I override existing fields (I suppose not)?

    Thanks for you help!
