Paginate back end repeater field?

  • I want to have a lot of rows in my repeater. The data is fairly simple – just the number of rows is high. I’ve applied several fixes but sooner or later I’m going to run out of memory problems that I can’t get around. The “simple” solution (as I understand it – I could be completely wrong) would be to paginate (e.g. split up) the repeater on back end so you only save the most recent bits.

    This thread (2017) – says it’s on the to do list. I’ve searched but all the results for pagination I find are on the back end which is not the issue.

    Or is there an alternative to repeaters for a lot of rows? Something which I’m not aware of at all?

    Thank you.

  • There is not solution, as far as I am aware, to paginate a repeater on the edit screen.

    Usually, if you have many rows, it is better to use either a custom post type or a taxonomy to hold the data, but that all depends on what the data is.
