How to get ACF values from custom post type?

in WordPress on February 24, 2021

Advanced Custom Fields makes the page really fancy and the good thing is that we can use those fields in custom post types too. Though, it’s a bit tricky to get all those field values from the custom post types.

We can use get_posts() function in WordPress and query the meta to get ACF fields.

We saw tons of examples on how to use get_posts() function, let’s try those queries on ACF fields.

Let’s take a look at the example of finding Events (post type) where location (custom field – select) equals Chicago (value).



$posts = get_posts(array(
	'numberposts' => -1,
	'post_type' => 'event',
	'meta_key' => 'location',
	'meta_value' => 'chicago'
));

if($posts)
{
	echo '<ul>';

	foreach($posts as $post)
	{
		echo '<li><a href="' . get_permalink($post->ID) . '">' . get_the_title($post->ID) . '</a></li>';
	}

	echo '</ul>';
}


The example above will return all posts from custom post type event that has a location = chicago.
