I love the page-link field type. The UI is perfect for CMS work. However, I have an issue. I’d like to be able to link to category / taxonomy archive pages – for instance http://example.com/my-category/.
Wordpress uses the template file taxonomy-slug.php, so each category can have an archive page.
What’s the best way to achieve this in ACF? I’d rather not just use a text field and rely on our users to correctly copy and paste the permalink.
Unfortunately, at the moment, a text field will be your best bet.
That or creating a new field type which includes the archive URLs you seek.
If you feel up to creating a new field type, there is plenty of docs and even a starter field template file to get you started over on the docs page!
any update on this? I was confused as the documentation shows that you can choose from Archives pages, but my Page Link does not ever show me archives… am I doing it wrong? (ACF Pro)
+1 on this, but in the mean-time, I’ve created a workaround. Simply use a “Taxonomy” as a select or radio (single value) field, and to get a link to that taxonomy archive, use:
get_category_link( get_field( 'your-taxonomy-field' ) )
for example, I used it in this way:
printf( '<a href="%1$s">Your Category</a>', get_category_link( get_field( 'your-taxonomy-field' ) ) );
