Using User Relationship Field to create User Specific Content

  • Hi there, I’m attempting to use your wonderful plugin like so.

    I have a custom post type: Client
    Within the custom post type I have a ACF for User Relationship

    The idea is while creating a client adding a user to the ACF will give those specified users access to view that page, I’m trying the code below to no avail, any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    <?php if ( is_user_logged_in() ) { $userID = (int)get_field('associated_users'); $theuser = get_userdata($userID); if ($theuser->user_login == 0 ) { ?>

  • Hi @sharksharkco

    Are you certain the value you get back from the user field is their ID?
    I think it’s the wp_user object.

  • Thanks Jonathan, now I’m using the following. It allows logged in users to see but still every logged in user rather than the specified in associated_users. Any ideas?

    <?php if ( is_user_logged_in() ) { $userID = (int)get_field('associated_users'); $current_user = wp_get_current_user(); if ($current_user->$userID == 0 ) { ?>

  • Hi @sharksharkco

    Your checking needs to be a bit more complicated than this to take account for all situations. This should do the trick for you:

    	//Fetch users and set our boolean to true per default
    	$users = get_field('associated_users');
    	$show_content = true;
    	if ( !is_user_logged_in() && $users) {
    		//If the visitor isn't logged in and we have users they should not be able to see the content
    		$show_content = false;
    	}elseif( is_user_logged_in() && $users ){
    		//Okay so they're logged in and we have users we need to check against
    		$current_user = wp_get_current_user();
    		//assume they should not see it (just in case)
    		$show_content = false;
    		foreach( $users as $user ){
    			//Loop through each user array from the ACF field
    			if( $user['ID'] == $current_user->ID ){
    				//Alright they are in the clear! Lets set our boolean to true and break early!
    				$show_content = true;
    <?php if( $show_content ){ ?>
    <!-- All content goes in here -->
    <?php } ?>
  • Awesome, that worked great!

    Thank you!
