Repeating Field in Category Template

  • Hi guys,

    I have a custom post type. This custom post type has a repeating image field associated with it.

    I use the following code to display the image in the archive.php template.

    <?php if( have_rows('ges_case_study') ): while ( have_rows('ges_case_study') ) : the_row(); ?>
        <img src="<?php the_sub_field('case_study_img');?>" alt="Global Energy Systems - Case Studies" />
        <?php break; //Using break here because I only want to display the first image of the repeating field ?>
        <?php endwhile;
        else : // no rows found ?>
        <?php endif; ?>

    This displays the first image added in the repeating field section. When I display the single-custom-post-type.php i display them all.

    Everything works perfectly.

    The problem is in my category.php template.

    In my category template I use the same code, but no image is displaying.

    So if somebody goes to for example, the posts for that category display but the image doesn’t.

    I am using the wordpress ‘the_title’ and ‘the_permalink’. these display. Just not the acf field.

    Can anybody point me in the right direction. The image displays on every other page I need it too.

  • First of all try to let it show on all possible pages and check if it’s still “missing”. If shows up then you know that u need to make some fixes in your field group display settings. Hope it helps.

  • Hi,

    The images display on every page other than the individual category pages.

    I have checked my rules and I have it set to.

    Show this field group if -> Post Type is equal to Case Study.

    I am guessing I need to add to this rule setting to get the image to output on the front end?

    If so what do I need to change?
