relationshipfield with direct link to post

  • I like the relation field and i have a lot of posts in it. but it would be cool to have a direct link button next to the “minus” button. then i can go to that post which is selected on the right side. now i have search it in my posts overview.

  • Hi @nicmare,

    Have you tried using the acf/fields/relationship/result filter to add the link to the post on the text that displays for each post.

    The code is simple, it should be as follows:

    add_filter('acf/fields/relationship/result', 'my_relationship_result', 10, 4);
    function my_relationship_result( $result, $object, $field, $post ) {
        $link = '<a href="'.get_permalink($object->ID).'"">Link text</a>';
        $result = $result . ' ' . $link;
        return $result;

    Have a look at acf/fields/relationship/query for more information.

  • great! acf for ever <3 !

    But this generates a frontend link. i need a link to the edit page of each item in the relationship field.

    OR is there a better way to do this than this:
    $link = '<a href="post.php?post='.$object->ID.'&action=edit">[edit]</a>';

  • Hi @nicmare,

    Hmm… another way would be using get_edit_post_link(...) WP method. The code should be as follows:

    $link = get_edit_post_link($object->ID);

    For more information, have a look at:

  • and how can i exclude results? i tried this:

    function only_big_images( $html, $post ) {
        $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ), 'shop_catalog' );
    	if($image[1] >= 600){
    		return $html; 

    but then in the relationship field list still exist “empty” items with the label “null”. i want to hide them completely from the list!

  • no idea??
