Specify number of Repeater fields

  • Is there any way to specify the number of repeater fields on the front-end?

    I’m able to successfully display a repeater field on the front-end allowing users to enter values but I don’t want them to be able to enter as many as they want or as few as they want. I want to specify exactly how many.

    Is this possible?

  • Hi @moonshdw8

    You can limit the number of rows to be added to the repeater by setting the maximum rows option from the field group edit page.

    Hope this helps.

  • Thanks a lot for the quick reply, but I want to be able to do this programatically.
    In this case, if someone has, let’s say 15 items. I want to display 15 repeater fields.
    Or 5 items, 5 repeater fields. etc.

    Thanks again.

  • Incidentally, this is my existing code

       'fields' => array('field_5d366cc2c5656'),
  • For anyone else with this issue, I resolved it this way:
    I used the acf/load_value as outllined here:

    Fantastic Help!
    Instead of adding each item like they do int he tutorial, I had a global variable based on how many items I needed, then I looped through the “$value[] = array(…” creating as many repeater items as I need.
    Here’s my resultant code:

    // Sets the number of Repeater Confirm Ring Size items.
    add_filter('acf/load_value/key=field_5d366cc2c5656',  'afc_load_my_repeater_value', 10, 3);
    function afc_load_my_repeater_value($value, $post_id, $field) {
        global $ring_count;
        //Optional: Check for post_status otherwise published values will be changed.
        if ( get_post_status( $post_id ) === 'wc-processing' or get_post_status( $post_id ) === 'wc-pending') {
             //Optional: Check for post_type.
            if( get_post_type( $post_id ) == 'shop_order' ){
                if ($ring_count > 0){
                    $value	= array();
                    // Add field key for the field you would to put a default value (text field in this case)
                    for ($i = 0; $i < $ring_count; $i++) {
                        $value[] = array(
                            'field_5d366d10c5657' => '5'
        return $value;
