  • Hello,

    I’m currently facing the same problem. I have a custom post type called ‘events’. Each event has a date, filtering on that is no problem. But each event also has multiple entries (repeater fields) each with a time. I want to be able to filter posts based on that subfield and the current time.

    Did you already find a solution to your problem Jonas?

    I really appreciate any help you can provide.

  • Thanks Elliot, that did the trick!

  • Hi Elliot,

    I’m talking about the front end of the website. It shows the date formats in English, but my WordPress installation is in Dutch.

    I use the standard jQuery datepicker function from ACF but not the add-on. Which one should I use, or doesn’t that make any difference?


  • Hi Elliot,

    So I have to output it like so?

    <?php echo get_sub_field('adres_lid', $row->meta_value); ?>

    Because that returns empty.

    Sorry to bother you with so many questions.

  • Hi Elliot,

    It seems the data doesn’t already exist inside $row.

    This is the output ;

    stdClass Object
        [meta_id] => 1301
        [post_id] => 144
        [meta_key] => leden_details_0_plaats_lid
        [meta_value] => gytsjerk

    What is the best solutions to output the subfield in the $wpdb->get_results loop?

    Hope to hear from you,


  • Hi Elliot,

    Thanks for your response.

    I’ve tried it like this ;

    <?php echo get_sub_field('adres_lid', $row->post_id); ?>

    But it returns empty. Or isn’t it possible to show a subfield like that?

    This is the whole code now

                            // get all rows from the postmeta table where the sub_field (type) equals 'type_3'
                            // -
                                $rows = $wpdb->get_results($wpdb->prepare( 
                                    SELECT * 
                                    FROM wp_postmeta
                                    WHERE meta_key LIKE %s
                                        AND meta_value = %s
                                    'leden_details_%_plaats_lid', // meta_name: $ParentName_$RowNumber_$ChildName
                                    'gytsjerk' // meta_value: 'type_3' for example
                            // loop through the results
                            if( $rows )
                                foreach( $rows as $row )
                                <li class="leden-details"><?php echo get_the_title( $row->post_id ); ?></li>
                                <li class="leden-show"><?php echo get_sub_field('adres_lid', $row->post_id); ?></li>


  • I have another question regarding this topic.

    I’ve managed to get it working with the help of your documentation. It shows the post title of my entries.

    But how do I show a custom field within the same loop?

    This <?php echo get_the_title( $row->post_id ); ?> shows the title, but how do I show a custom field?

  • Thanks, tweaked it a bit and it worked. Thanks for your help!

  • Thanks, that worked like a charm!
