[Resolved] Display repeated group field

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem:

The issue here is that the user is using the new field groups option in our Toolset Beta plugins and wanted to display the repeated groups on the frontend.

Solution:

I spoke with the development team and they said that they are working on an API for the repeatable field groups but its not quite ready as yet.

So for now we are not able to display this on the frontend.

The solution I provided was for the old method of repeatable field groups but given that you are using the Beta we currently don't have a solution for it just as yet.

This is the technical support forum for Toolset - a suite of plugins for developing WordPress sites without writing PHP.

Everyone can read this forum, but only Toolset clients can post in it. Toolset support works 6 days per week, 19 hours per day.

Our next available supporter will start replying to tickets in about 7.32 hours from now. Thank you for your understanding.

Thanks, it work; I used this code:

$args = array('post_type' => 'gruppo-paragrafo', 'orderby' => 'meta_value', 'order' => 'ASC');
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

if ( $query->have_posts() ) {
while ( $query->have_posts() ) {
$query->the_post();

echo types_render_field("titolo");

}
}

But this code display every group field "gruppo-paragrafo" i created in every page. How I can display only the group field "gruppo-paragrafo" created for the single page?

thanks

Hello,

I see so you decided to just use the wordpress main query function.

In order for it to display the information for the current post you need to query the post parent meta field.

For e.g

'meta_query' => array(array('key' => '_wpcf_belongs_writer_id', 'value' => get_the_ID()))

From the example above I provided the _wpcf_belongs_writer_id as the meta query value to query to parent information. In this case its for a Writers CPT where the slug of that cpt is writer, so what you need to do is to substitute your slug into the code.

Your format should be _wpcf_belongs_{myparentcptslug}_id

Please let me know if this helps.
Thanks,
Shane

Hi, I tried '_wpcf_belongs_page_id' but it's not working...

This is the link of the frontpage: hidden link

The slug of the page is: azienda

Now, I use this code

$args = array(
'post_type' => 'gruppo-paragrafo',
'numberposts' => -1,
'meta_key' => 'wpcf-genre',
'orderby' => 'meta_value',
'order' => 'ASC',
'meta_query' => array(array('key' => '_wpcf_belongs_azienda_id', 'value' => get_the_ID()))
);
$child_posts = get_posts($args);
foreach ( $child_posts as $post ) {
	setup_postdata( $post );
	
	echo types_render_field("numero");
	
	wp_reset_postdata();
}

I also read this post: https://toolset.com/forums/topic/problem-with-wpcf-belongs-to-a-page/, is it the same problem?

thanks

Instead, using this code

$child_args = array(
'post_type' => 'gruppo-paragrafo',
'numberposts' => -1,
'meta_key' => 'wpcf-genre',
'orderby' => 'meta_value',
'order' => 'ASC',
'meta_query' => array(array('key' => '_wpcf_belongs_azienda_id', 'value' => get_the_ID()))
);
$child_posts = get_posts($child_args);

print_r($child_posts);

The array is empty. Why?

Thank you

Hello,

That is strange as it should return some posts if the post page has children.

Would you mind allowing me to have a look at your cpt setup on the backend? Also please let me know which posts are the parent and child and where was this code added.

The private fields will be enabled for your next response.

Thanks,
Shane

Hi,

I see and I checked on this and it seems that there isn't a way to display this completely as yet.

I spoke with the development team and they said that they are working on an API for the repeatable field groups but its not quite ready as yet.

So for now we are not able to display this on the frontend.

The solution I provided was for the old method of repeatable field groups but given that you are using the Beta we currently don't have a solution for it just as yet.

Hi...
I do not understand if the new version of toolset (the paid version) has already been released...

Can we take a test before proceeding with the purchase?

tnx
