Post Objects – Displaying Multiple Instances

  • I have created two multi-select Post Object fields that I need to display both of on the same page. I utilized the code from https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/post-object/ to create my code utilizing my own HTML.

    The first instance renders on the page fine, but the second instance never renders. I can remove the first and then the remaining instance will render. What do I need to change with my code to make both instances work at the same time? Code below.

    <?php
    
    /*
    *  Loop through post objects (assuming this is a multi-select field) ( setup postdata )
    *  Using this method, you can use all the normal WP functions as the $post object is temporarily initialized within the loop

    */
    
    $post_objects = get_field('display_products');
    
    if( $post_objects ): ?>								
    
     <div class="well">
      <section>
        <div class="row">
          <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12 col-lg-12">

  • Hi KimFen, same issue here, were you able to solve it?

  • Hi KimFen and Hectormunozg.

    Same issue here.
    The wp_reset_postdata() is the magic to to this but it’s not working

  • My guess here is that you are running into issues caused by multiple nested queries. What is happening before this code is called?
