Update a nested repeater field

  • I’m trying to understand how to update a nested repeater field

    i have a nested repeater field (link blocks, with a title and a list of links. How do I address this for update?

    Link-block Repeater field
    — block title (string)
    — Link (new repeater field)
    —— Link title (string)
    —— Link URL (link)
    —— Link icon (fa icon)

    I get my link-block from a json feed, $d->link_block. To get the values from $d->link_block is fine, but I cannot figure out the update syntax from acf.

    please advice

  • Here is a rough outline of what you need

    
    $repeater = 'field_XXXXX'; // field key of repeater
    $value = array(
      // nested array for every row of repeater
      array(
        // field key => value pairs for each sub field
        'field_XXXXX' => 'block title', // title field
        'field_XXXXX' => array(
          // nested repeater
          // field key => value pairs for each sub field
          'field_XXXXX' => 'link title',
          'field_XXXXX' => 'link url',
          'field_XXXXX' => 'link fa icon',
        ),
        // next row in nested repeater
      ),
      // next row in repeater
    );
    update_field($repeater, $value, $post_id);
    
  • Thanks you were missing an array of arrays

      $repeater = 'field_62e5ba2733cea'; // field key of repeater
      $value_john = array(
        // nested array for every row of repeater
        array(
          // field key => value pairs for each sub field
          'field_62e5ba3233ceb' => 'block title', // title field
          'field_62e6bd4119dc1' => array(
            // nested repeater
            // field key => value pairs for each sub field
            array(
              'field_62e6bd5e19dc3' => 'link title',
              'field_62e6bd6419dc4' => 'link url',
              'field_62e6bd6a19dc5' => 'link fa icon',
            ),
            array(
              'field_62e6bd5e19dc3' => 'link title',
              'field_62e6bd6419dc4' => 'link url',
              'field_62e6bd6a19dc5' => 'link fa icon',
            ),
    
          ),
          // next row in nested repeater
        ),
      // next row in repeater
    );
