Post Object field not returning all posts with the same name

  • If multiple posts of the same type have the same name, they are not all retrieved by the Post Object field. Only one of them is retrieved (appears to be at random).

    I’m trying to find a way to fix this issue. I had not anticipated my client would fill the CMS with events bearing the same name.

    Thank you!

  • Hi @brunocloutier,

    You can make use of the acf/fields/post)object/query filter to change the order of the posts queried by the WP_Query function and thus change the posts displayed by the field.

    I would recommend you modify the $args array and change the ‘order_by’ value to ‘ID’ or ‘author’

    The code should look like this:

    <?php
    
    function my_post_object_query( $args, $field, $post )
    {
        // modify the order
        $args['orderby'] = 'ID';
    
        return $args;
    }
    
    // filter for every field
    add_filter('acf/fields/post_object/query', 'my_post_object_query', 10, 3);
