Sort repeater admin fields

  • How is it possible to order the admin repeater fields ?

    Something like the admin post list (click the title to sort by the title etc’)

  • i also would know if it is possible to auto order repeater fields at backend, based on a value inside that repeater (oder by a date-field for example)

    at frontend i have no big problem. i do it like this:

    foreach( $arr_merge as $key => $row ) {
    $thedate = $row['termin_date']; 
    $column_id[ $key ] = strtotime($thedate);
    array_multisort( $column_id, SORT_ASC, $arr_merge );

    but at backend i dont know, how to do that.

    if there where not may repeater rows, manually order is no big thing, but if you have about 10-100 repeater-rows, automatic order would be great. even if it would happen only after a save/update the post, not after add row.

  • You can use a filter like:

    add_filter('acf/load_value/type=repeater', 'my_acf_load_value', 10, 3);
    function my_acf_load_value( $rows)
      array_multisort($rows, SORT_ASC);
      return $rows;

    Now you just have to build a select menu and hook to the specified action..
