Repeater Field show link or plain text

  • Hi,

    I’m putting together a list using a repeater field. Some of the list items will be links and others will just be plain text. I want to make this as easy as possible for the user, so I set up a repeater field with a “text” and a “url” item. On the edit page, it shows up like so:

    1. [TEXTAREA] | [URL]
    2. [TEXTAREA] | [URL]
    3. [TEXTAREA] | [URL]etc…

    I currently have the list item set up as

    <li><a href="<?php the_sub_field('item_url'); ?>" target="_blank"><?php // display a sub field value
    the_sub_field('list_item'); ?></a></li>

    This works, except for when a url is not typed… The text still shows, but it shows as a clickable link and I don’t want this. I have tried experimenting with “if” statements to try and stop this (eg. if the link is not empty, show above, otherwise just show plain text) but I can’t seem to code it properly without it completely tearing apart the whole page….

    Can anyone help with this please?


  • get the url and see if it has a value

        $text = get_sub_field('list_item');
        $url = get_subfield('item_url');
        if ($url) {
          $text = '<a href="'.$url.'" target="_blank">'.$text.'</a>';
        echo $text;
