More Tag not converting

  • Hi, I’m trying to get the more tag for a WYSIWYG field to convert to a span like on a regular page:

    <?php if(have_posts()) : while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    <?php endwhile; endif; ?>

    is converted to this:

    <span id="more-36"></span>

    But the ACF WYSIWYG field, the more tag just returns as:


    I’ve tried

    $value = get_field('about');
    echo apply_filters('the_content',$value);

    but that doesn’t convert it to the span.

  • Hi @radirot

    I’m not sure why it isn’t working, but you can always use acf/load_value and str_replace to change that tags automatically for WYSIWYG custom field. You can use this code to do it:

    function my_acf_load_value( $value, $post_id, $field )
        // run the_content filter on all textarea values
        $value = apply_filters('the_content',$value); 
        $value = str_replace("<!--more-->", '<span id="more-'. $post_id .'"></span>', $value);
        return $value;
    add_filter('acf/load_value/type=wysiwyg', 'my_acf_load_value', 10, 3);

    I hope this helps.
