Is it possible to share field group values across posts/pages?
For instance, with a competition schedule:
There are Event Pages, with a line-up of performers. Each performance has a time, performer, and ranking (added later).
Event Z: 2:15 – Performer A – ***** / 2:30 – Performer B – ***
There are also Performer pages, which lists which events they go to. Performers may attend multiple events. Rankings get added to performer pages after the event.
Performer A: Event Y: ** / Event Z: *****
Is it possible to create relationships between fields across posts types/pages, to relate the data so once I add information to Event Z, I don’t have to go back and add it to the associated Performers?
// current post global $post; // args for query $query_args = array( 'post_type' => 'performers', // performers post_type (or use WP_User_query for users) 'meta_query' => array( array( // performers match field slug 'key' => 'event_id', // field slug acf (use post object field and return id) 'value' => $post->ID // current post id ) ) ); // set wp query $query = new WP_Query( $query_args ); // query have posts if( $query->have_posts() ): // loop posts (performers) while( $query->have_posts() ): $query->the_post(); // update fields you like // field_slug, field_value, current perfomers id update_field( 'YOUR_FIELD_SLUG', 'YOU_FIELD_VALUE', get_the_ID() ); // end loop endwhile; // reset query wp_reset_postdata(); // end endif;
I do not know if I understood you correctly, but I’m thinking (depending on your own needs) that you should reach your goal.
You can also put that into a function and then use it the way you need it everywhere.
If you want to do this via / wp-admin, you should look at acf/save_post and combine it.
Thanks for your response. I’m not sure I fully understand the above, but my design and needs have changed, and I’m getting closer to understanding what I need… and maybe you can help again?
This code will be on a Band Page, calling to a Competition Page. Each have repeaters… band repeats competition list, competition repeats band and scores. I want to call a specific band’s scores from the competition page. I’m not sure how to specify the repeater row.
$post_object = get_sub_field(‘competition’);
if( $post_object): $post = $post_object;
setup_postdata( $post ); ?>
if( have_rows(‘competition_schedule’) ):
while ( have_rows(‘competition_schedule’) ) : the_row();
// no rows found
<?php wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
<?php endif; ?>
But right now, each band is pulling the same score.
While I haven’t touched a template yet for the competitions in this regard, “State fight” does have both New Bund and Three Bund as in there, within the repeater, with different scores.
