Use product category for ACF conditions

  • Hello.
    I’m setting my ACF group conditions, and, for now, i have only one condition “if post type is equals to product”.
    But i would like to have some groups on specific product categories.
    The problem is that if i select “post category” in my conditions, i have blog-categories only.
    How can i achieve to unlock product categories?
    Thank you in advance.

  • You need to build a custom location rule for WC product categories.

  • Hello, and thank you for the reply.
    I’ve read your docs. But i still don’t understand how to proceed.

    I basically need to add 3 options on the ‘type’ section, that are 3 product categories where i want there will be displayed only some ACF Groups.

    For now, i’ve done something like that:

    add_filter('acf/location/rule_values/post_category', 'acf_location_rules_values_user');
    function acf_location_rules_values_user( $choices ) {
    	$my_filter_list = [0 => 'Books', 1 => 'Ebooks', 19091 => 'Reader'];
        return $my_filter_list;

    Before my array was 0,1,2. But i noticed that, even if i have the setting displayed on my backoffice, it’s totally not working. So i tried to change the ‘2’ with the product category ID. But is always not working.

    What am i doing wrong? I maybe need to first put every category in the array?
    Thank you in advance.

  • Hello.
    Is there maybe a better way to do this with ACF PRO?
    Thank you in advance.

  • Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. It takes more than just one filter to build a custom location rule and you can just tack your taxonomies onto the post category rule.

    Building a complete set of location rule filters, with the exception of “Rule Operators” is the only way to do this in ACF.

    I have several examples of custom location rules, but none of them are for this specific purpose, but can be used as a reference.
