I’ve only just started developing with ACF, and I can see why it’s such popular plugin! I’ve had a look through the forum for a solution for my problem, but can’t seem to find the answer, all though I think there is probably an easy solution for it.
I got a repeater field called “file” that has a sub field (type file) called “files”. I’d like all the individual files to be gathered in a dropdown with a button called “Download”. When I did the following I ended up with two “Download”-buttons instead of one. How do I gather the files in the same div?
This is what I want it to look like in the end: https://ibb.co/kUiTFv
while ( have_rows('file') ) : the_row(); // display a sub field value $files = get_sub_field('files'); if ($files): ?> <button onclick="download()" type="button">Download</button> <div id="download"> <a href="<?php echo $files['url']; ?>"><?php echo $files['filename']; ?></a> </div> <?php endif; endwhile;
Thanks for reaching out to us.
Unfortunately, that is quite tricky as it is not possible to link to several links using a single anchor.
You will need some custom solution or maybe using Jquery to trigger download for all the files on click.
Hope this helps.
I got this sorted via email support, thank you very much. This is what the result looks like:
<?php // if 'file' repeater has rows if( have_rows('file') ): ?> <!-- files select button --> <button onclick="download()" type="button">Download</button> <div id="download"> <!-- files select list --> <?php // loop through the 'file' rows of data while ( have_rows('file') ) : the_row(); $files = get_sub_field('files'); $file_name = get_sub_field('file_name'); ?> <!-- display file name with URL in download list --> <a href="<?php echo $files['url']; ?>" target="_blank"><?php echo $file_name; ?></a> <?php // endwhile loop for 'file' repeater endwhile; ?> </div> <?php // else if 'file' repeater has no rows else : // no rows found endif;
