I am trying to: Set a url in a Advanced Custom field to be the background image of a Div in a view.

I visited this URL: hidden link

I expected to see: background image in the first column of each row (other three columns just have it set to load the image; not as a background)

Instead, I got: blank div.

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

Can I have your field name and few screenshots where exactly you want to display your background image.

*** Please make a FULL BACKUP of your database and website.***
I would also eventually need to request temporary access (WP-Admin and FTP) to your site. Preferably to a test site where the problem has been replicated if possible in order to be of better help and check if some configurations might need to be changed.

I would additionally need your permission to de- and re-activate Plugins and the Theme, and to change configurations on the site. This is also a reason the backup is really important. If you agree to this, please use the form fields I have enabled below to provide temporary access details (wp-admin and FTP).

I have set the next reply to private which means only you and I have access to it.

Well - you used following code - that is wrong:

[wpv-acf-image field='wac_image' size='large' url='true'][/types]

You can get your ACF field image using following shortcode:

[wpv-post-field name='wac_image']
