WordPress: How to get ACF field values from another post?

in WordPress on February 22, 2021

Printing array from the current post and page is pretty straight forward. Similarly, printing repeater in the same post or page is relatively simple.

But when it comes to getting ACF fields values from another post, it becomes a bit tricky. Let’s go through some examples.

Printing a field from another post



<?php $other_page = 12; ?>
<p><?php the_field('field_name', $other_page); ?></p>


Saving a field from another post to a variable



<?php 
  $other_page = 12;
  $variable = get_field('field_name', $other_page);
  //do something with the saved variable
?>


Getting repeater values from another post

For repeater values, the_sub_field and get_sub_field don’t need a post id parameter like the_field and get_field.



if( have_rows('repeater_field_name', $other_page) ):
  while( have_rows('repeater_field_name', $other_page) ): the_row();    
    the_sub_field('sub_field_1');
    the_sub_field('sub_field_2');
    $sub_field_3 = get_sub_field('sub_field_3');
    //do something with the saved variable
  endwhile;
endif;
