Putting Flex Content inside a Repeater

  • I have found this post that covers putting flex content inside a repeater, but I’ll be damned if I can get it to work.

    I continually get an error related to line 45 here (Codepen link).

    What am I missing?


  • Hi @opus13

    Could you check that CodePen link? Not sure you remembered to include it 🙂

  • Aha! Figured it out… kind of.

    I am obviously quite new at this, and ACF Theme Code pro saved my ass.

    It all comes down to having separate endif/endwhile/else for each tier of calls

  • Hi,
    I am using a flexible content field within that I took a repeater field which is working fine, then I choose to have flexible content field, now the problem is I am not able to add more than 2 layouts by back-end. Whenever I add 1 more field, page gets updated but flexible content field is not added, but I am able to add normal fields anywhere.

  • I am not quite sure i understand your configuration —

    Form what I gather: You have a flexcontent field with repeaters inside. If you add more than 1 flexcontent entry none of the output shows. is that correct?

  • After playing with it a bit here is a setup that works.

    ACF fields setup
    Creating the post
    The posts output

    And this is the code put into single.php before the end of the have_posts() loop

    <?php if ( have_rows( 'flex_holder' ) ): ?>
    	<?php while ( have_rows( 'flex_holder' ) ) : the_row(); ?>
    		<?php if ( get_row_layout() == 'repeater_holder' ) : ?>
    			<?php if ( have_rows( 'repeater' ) ) : ?>
    				<?php while ( have_rows( 'repeater' ) ) : the_row(); ?>
    					<?php the_sub_field( 'repeater_field_1' ); ?>
    					<?php the_sub_field( 'repeater_field_2' ); ?>
    				<?php endwhile; ?>
    			<?php else : ?>
    				<?php // no rows found ?>
    			<?php endif; ?>
    		<?php endif; ?>
    	<?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php else: ?>
    	<?php // no layouts found ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
