How to get the Field Group ID from a page?

  • I created many field groups and used ‘Show this field group if.. Page is equal to.. X‘.

    I’m using get_post_custom_keys() to show all the custom fields from a page:

    $custom_field_keys = get_post_custom_keys(45);

    I hardcoded the ’45’ which is not the page ID, but the Field Group ID. I’m struggling to get the ID of the field group associated with the page.

    get_post_custom_keys($post_id); will show the custom fields for the page and not the field group.

    I understand there might be multiple field groups associated with one page.

  • I’m looking for this exact same thing. Currently I’m doing something like this, `<?php
    //or insert the ID of your fields Group.
    $custom_field_keys = get_post_custom_keys($groupID);
    $items = count($custom_field_keys);
    foreach ( $custom_field_keys as $key => $fieldkey )
    if (stristr($fieldkey,’field_’))
    //echo $key . ” => ” . $fieldkey . “<br />”;
    //echo $field[‘label’] . ‘: ‘ . $field[‘value’];
    //echo $fieldkey . “<br />”;
    $field = get_field_object($fieldkey, $groupID);

    echo ‘<span class=”h4″>’ . $field[‘label’] . ‘</span><br /><span class=”sans”>’ . $field[‘value’]. ‘</span></p>’;


    But would love to know how to get it from the post/page id.

  • Actually I wonder if this is how we get the fields lables/values with post id, ??? I use that but got bool(false)? Whats up?

  • Okay so thats how you do it.
    This worked for me to get fields’ labels and values based on the postid, but

    Still not sure how to get the groupid from the post/page id.

    Good Luck!

  • I had to do it manually.

    I query the database and look for a rules for a specific post. If I found one, I grad the ID.

    It works, but it’s not pretty:

    //We look into the rules to see if any are applied
    $rows = $wpdb->get_results(“SELECT * FROM wp_postmeta WHERE meta_key = ‘rule'”);
    foreach ($rows as $row) {
    $values = unserialize($row->meta_value);
    if ($postid == $values[“value”]) { $numberofacffield = $row->post_id; }

    //Here, we read the fields since $numberofacffield is the ID we are looking for.
    $custom_field_keys = get_post_custom_keys($numberofacffield);

  • Hi Etienne,

    I have the same requirement as you…kind of. And I am stumped. I was going though the code that worked for you, and I have a question. At the cost of appearing a dud…here goes the question 🙂
    In the query here, is “rule” the name of your field group?

    Many Thanks,
