  • ** Ignore this – I have asked a similar question a few months ago **

    Alternatively – is there a way I can get the file field form within the Java file – currently using – field name ‘gas_elec_data’

    // Set up data source
    chart.dataSource.url = “”;

  • Hi John ….

    Once again, many thanks for your response. Will have a play and try and teach myself.

    However, had another idea and found an article you wrote in 2016 and have found a way around it for now. I have added the upload_prefilter to rename the file and also change the destination for the upload – therefore the csv filename and location will be constant.

    Many thanks.


  • Not 100% sure – but the screen shot attached shows the Javascript sat within a WordPress AMCharts page control but based upon having tried all permutations of the basic ‘the_field’ … and still no success I guess it may not be an easy wish then!

  • Hi John ….

    Thanks for your help.

    It is set to ‘file url’. I suppose my question is more – Within the Javascript – should I be able to simply change the csv url from:

    chart.dataSource.url = “../wp-content/uploads/2021/05/sample_data_serial.csv”;


    chart.dataSource.url = “<?php echo the_field(‘gas_data_file’, ‘option’); ?>”;

    or if I have to something more fancy like I have seen in a few support posts already (sorry Java is not my forte…) like create a value from :

    var datafile = <?php echo the_field(‘gas_data_file’, ‘option’); ?>;

    and then add this in to the Java …. if so, it is here I am not sure how to write this last element.

  • Thanks – I had tried that already but did not work.

  • Hi John ….

    It is on the front_page template – ie the home page. I simply want a block of 6 images with h3’s which all link to the chosen category in WooCommerce.

    Thanks in advance.


  • Hi John ….

    I thought I had done this but I must have missed something …. as have now worked it out and managed to kill that plugin on the specific page.

    Many thanks for your assistance.


  • Evening ….

    Yep, acf_form_head() is before the get_header() and both wp_head() and footer are called in the theme.


  • Thanks topdotter…

    I have looked at various articles but like that one, most are based upon having expected results in the rows to sort by.

    My request seems fairly simple – I can easily sort posts based upon a date picker field in a non repeating field …. so why is it so difficult in a repeater – or better still where do I find the instructions.

    I have been told by Support that the following should work … but I cannot get it to work.

    ‘post_type’ => ‘films’,
    ‘posts_per_page’ => 10,
    ‘meta_query’ => ‘film_captures_%_capture_date’,
    ‘orderby’ => ‘meta_value’,
    ‘order’ => ‘DESC’

    Really am desperate to get this working before I have to ditch it and go another route so any thoughts or guidance would be gratefully received.
