get_sub_field outside (have_rows)

    Hello, my repeater is located in profile page

    $id = userid
    $key = correct row
    1 = value (for true/false -field)

    update_sub_field(array(‘great_repeater’, $key, ‘sub_field_1’), 1, ‘user_’ . $id); //THIS WORKS JUST FINE BUT…

    I need to check the value(1) before so how can I do it with get_sub_field?

    My final goal is:

    if (get_sub_field(something..something..wuts?) == 0) {
    update_sub_field(array(‘great_repeater’, $key, ‘sub_field_1’), 1, ‘user_’ . $id);
    } else {
    update_sub_field(array(‘great_repeater’, $key, ‘sub_field_1’), 0, ‘user_’ . $id);

    <?php if( get_field('great_repeater') ): ?>
    	<?php while( has_sub_field('great_repeater') ): ?>
    		$select = get_sub_field('sub_field_1');
    			<?php foreach( $select['choices'] as $k => $v ): ?>
    			<?php endforeach; ?>
    	<?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
  • You can’t use get_sub_field() outside of a have_rows() loop.

    You can get the value of that sub field directly using get_post_meta().

    For example, if your repeater is named “repeater” and the sub field you want to check is named “sub_field” and the row you want to check is the 2nd row then

    $value = get_post_meta($post_id, 'repeater_1_sub_field', true);

    indexes start a 0 so the second rows index is 1.

    This is how repeaters and sub fields are named

    @hube2 I think you have a typo in your answer. It should be:

    $value = get_post_meta($post_id, 'repeater_1_sub_field', true);

    .. that is, a comma after the $post_id instead of a period.
