  • Wow, this is awesome! Exactly what I was looking for. Cheers, Carl!

  • No prob, but I just tried something that you may be able to advise on.

    When I register the block in functions.php, I can use that wp_add_inline_script to execute code in the back end. But ACF doesn’t work in functions.php. Probably because it doesn’t know which block (or at least post) to pull this “slides_per_view” value from.

    I think you need to target the post ID if you use ACF in functions.php, no? Which is why the last section of this doesn’t work as it does in my slider.php file.

          'name'              => 'slider',
          'title'             => __('Slider'),
          'description'       => __('A custom slider block.'),
          'render_template'   => 'inc/blocks/slider/slider.php',
          'category'          => 'formatting',
          'icon'         => 'images-alt2',
          'align'        => 'full',
          'enqueue_assets'   => function () {
            wp_enqueue_script('swiper', '[email protected]/swiper-bundle.min.js', array(), '1.8.1', true);
            $script = ‘var swiper = new Swiper(“.swiper”, 
            wp_add_inline_script(‘swiper’, $script);

    No worries if you’re not sure. You’ve helped plenty.

  • Doh – dumb mistake on my part. Awesome, this works. Thanks.

    One last thing. This doesn’t insert the script into the editor. Any way I can have it insert on the admin side as well? I’d love to have it work with the new full site editor.

  • Hi @hube2 , thanks for the help.

    Your first comment unfortunately didn’t work – same results as before. For the wp_add_inline_script option, how do I add my php into that script?

    The following code causes issues because I’m trying to put PHP in a JavaScript string (the $data parameter of wp_add_inline_script), I think:

    wp_add_inline_script('swiper', '
    var swiper = new Swiper(".swiper", {
          slidesPerView: <?php the_field("slides_per_view"); ?>
