Get place name from Google Maps field

  • Hi,

    I have a Google Maps field in the backend where I can enter an address or a place name, e.g. Allianz Arena, and it will automatically find the full address for it. This makes it easy for publishers adding an address.

    How do I get to display the place name in the frontend?
    With the following code from the ACF Google Maps page I can only get the street details, but not the place name, in my example “Allianz Arena”.

    $location = get_field('location');
    if( $location ) {
        // Loop over segments and construct HTML.
        $address = '';
        foreach( array('street_number', 'street_name', 'city', 'state', 'post_code', 'country') as $i => $k ) {
            if( isset( $location[ $k ] ) ) {
                $address .= sprintf( '<span class="segment-%s">%s</span>, ', $k, $location[ $k ] );
        // Trim trailing comma.
        $address = trim( $address, ', ' );
        // Display HTML.
        echo '<p>' . $address . '.</p>';

    How could I get that place name?


  • Try adding ‘name’ before ‘street_number’, so your foreach becomes:
    foreach( array('name', 'street_number', 'street_name', 'city', 'state', 'post_code', 'country') as $i => $k ) {
