I have a Custom Post Type called Suppliers. I have created the Field Group for Suppliers. Within that Field Group, there is a repeatable group for images. (Post Group Field Page screenshot attached.) When creating a New Form "Add New Supplier", all of the fields appear except the repeatable group. (screenshot attached)

My users need to be able to upload multiple images for each supplier. I wanted a repeatable group so that users would be able to upload as many images as they wished without reaching an upper limit. (i.e. I don't want to define image1, image2, image3 as custom fields because this needs to be able to grow organically.)

It's exactly what you have done here on this help form - multiple images can be uploaded.

Settings: Bootstrap 4 is loaded, "Use the WordPress Media Library manager" is checked.

How do I make this happen?

Thx

Hi,

Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

The custom field values stored in the repeatable field groups are saved in a separate hidden post type and not with the same parent post type to which the field group is attached.

For this reason, it is not possible to add them, using the same form that adds the parent post.
( ref: https://toolset.com/course-lesson/front-end-forms-for-repeatable-field-groups/ )

Based on what you've shared, a simpler approach would be not to use the repeatable field group for the images. You can simply include an image type field, and turn on the option 'Allow multiple instances of this field'. This way users will be able to upload multiple images, using the same form that adds the 'Suppliers' post.

I hope this helps and please let me know if you need further assistance.

regards,
Waqar
