Group repeater fields from different posts

  • Apologies if this is a duplicate of my original post…it keeps getting deleted if you edit it more than once?

    Hey guys, I have done a bunch of searching and can’t seem to find a resolution particular to what I’m looking to do. Here’s what’s up:

    I created an event custom post type. Within each of those posts, are repeaters which allow the person to select multiple date and times. What I would like to do, and I’m not sure it’s possible the way I’m thinking, is group the events that have the same dates, by date.

    Something like this:

    Date 1

    • Event 1
    • Event 2
    • Event 3

    Date 2

    • Event 2
    • Event 3

    Date 3

    • Event 1
    • Event 2

    And so fourth and so on….

    While I’ve come across similar issues with potential resolutions, I’ve got nothing to work. Here’s how I’m handling my code:

    Outside the while loop:
    $current_header = '';

    Inside the while loop:

    $date_count = count(get_field('dates_times'));
                                        
    // Group events
    for ($i = 0; $i < $date_count; $i++) : 
    
        // Get repeater fields 
        $dates = 'dates_times_' . $i . '_date';
    
        // Snatch up the postmeta
        $temp_date = get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), $dates, true );
    
        // Convert Date
        $date = DateTime::createFromFormat('Ymd', $temp_date);
        if ( is_object($date) ) $day = $date->format('l - F, j');
    
        // Group by day
        if ( $day !=  $current_header ) :
            $current_header = $day;
            echo '<h2 class="medium-12 cell">' . $day . '</h2>';
        endif; 
    
        // REST OF POST CODE HERE
    
    endfor;

    This returns:

    Date 1

    • Event 1

    Date 3

    • Event 1

    Date 1

    • Event 2

    Date 2

    • Event 2

    Date 3

    • Event 2

    Date 1

    • Event 3

    And so on…. They’re not being grouped as expected. I assume the for loop is throwing them off. So any ideas or suggestions here would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.
