I no the old version had a specific field type for creating matrix questions. But on this new version I see I cannot use that control is their any control which i can use like repeater to replicate matrix questions?
Are you referring to an old plugin that was called Custom Field Matrix? I ask because I found an older topic here that mentions it while searching. http://support.advancedcustomfields.com/forums/topic/custom-field-matrix-migrate-to-advanced-custom-fields/
I’m unfamiliar with this plugin or what matrix questions are or how they work. Can you explain a bit more about what you’re trying to do an maybe I can point you to a solution.
I probally didnt state the question as well as I should have a matrix question is one that displays a list of radiobuttons horzontally with a raiting from poor to very good and with about ten radio buttons with a scale of 1 to ten that can be used to judge overall performance of a person.
This screen shot online best describes what a matrix question is hence why i thought repeater would be best.
Also is it possible with these forms to allow the end user to edit a custom post type reason being one my tasks its to allow user to submt and edit their item from the front end without allowing access to admin panel.
Yes, that explains it. Honestly, I’m not sure how I’d do that. While a repeater with a radio button sub field would work I don’t know if it’s possible to get the layout from ACF to be presented like that image.
I recently did something similar for a client, but I did not use ACF to create the front end form. I used Contact Form 7. I haven’t actually seen this done with ACF.
It this for creating a front end form using
acf_form() or do you want this to be displayed this way in the admin?
Its for creating a used front end form so can allow them to fill in the custom post type on signup is that possible ??.
Well, a repeater with a radio button sub field would probably allow something like this, but I can’t say if it’s possible to format the fields and buttons so that it looks like the image you posted. Since I’ve never done it or seen it… The best I can tell you is, maybe. You’ll have to try it and figure out the custom CSS you’ll need to add to your page.
