Please check the code below
<iframe style=”width: 100%; height: 700px;” src=”https://HCSSC-Report_Dimapur_Nagaland.pdf” frameborder=”0″></iframe> here in this, I have embedded the pdf file, I have already created a “file” field which will be taking pdf file for one of my field group, so what I want to do is, embed the ACF field, so that I can directly create a custom single file template.
Do you just want to put the url of the file field in the iframe? or is it more complicated than that? Not sure what this means
so that I can directly create a custom single file template
Do you just want to put the url of the file field in the iframe? :”YES”
https://hcssc.in/newsletters/ this archive template I have created by selecting acf fields, (example the title is retrieved from newsletter title field) so I want to show my file fields in same way.
Set the file field to return the file URL
<iframe style="width: 100%; height: 700px;" src="<?php the_field('file_field_name'); ?>" frameborder="0"></iframe>
Hi John, Thanks for the support, please check this video https://www.transfernow.net/dl/20220224HEgIG3AG I have tried with the above code snippet but I didn’t find anything useful, when I give the file field in iframe it’s showing “page not find”, please check this issue,
Thank you in for your valuable support
Please explain the details here. Sorry, but I’m not going to download a 46 MB video. You can post code and screenshots here if you need to.
I was able to view the video.
You cannot put PHP code in a wysiwyg. You cannot use a shortcode as an attribute of an html tag. In addition to this if you are attempting to use a shortcode then the ACF field must be attached to the same post as the content. If you want to use a file field and insert and iframe in a wysiwyg field then you will probably need to build your own shortcode to do it. Beyond this I’m not 100% sure what you are trying to do, or where the fields are, or how that location relates to the post where you are attempting to insert the iframe.
