Trying to get a post object but failing

  • Hi,

    So I have a problem fetching a post object and can’t seem to understand how to solve it. I have a custom post type called “News” where I have news articles. In one of these articles I want to fetch another post from another custom post type which is called “Match 1”. The Post object is setup in ACF but when I try to fetch the title within my article loop with the code below it just returns the News article heading over and over again, not even the correct heading.

      $match_post = get_field('match');
      if( $match_post ): ?>
        <?php foreach( $match_post as $post ): ?>
          <?php setup_postdata($post); ?>
          <?php the_title(); ?>
        <?php endforeach; ?>
      <?php wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
      <?php endif; ?>

    If I instead go with the following:

    $featured_post = get_field('match');
    $fieldone = the_field('date', $featured_post->ID);
    if( $featured_post ): ?>
        <h3><?php echo esc_html( $featured_post->post_title ); ?></h3>
        <h3><?php echo esc_html( $fieldone ); ?></h3>
    <?php endif; ?>

    I get the fields from that post so it’s good. Unfortunately I have some subfields and repeaters which I’m not sure how to loop through 🙁
