ACF Dynamic Choices

Description

If you’ve ever needed your ACF choices to be dynamically generated by a SQL query, this plugin will help you get the job done.

You can mix and match static choices with dynamic, SQL-based choices by placing as many regular choices in the list as you’d like, followed by the special %%QUERY%% choice that will tell this plugin to load choices dynamically from the database.

An example on how to list users, setting the id as the value, would look like this:

%%QUERY%% : SELECT user_nicename AS text, id AS value FROM wp_users

Arbitrary section

Installation

  1. Upload acf-dynamic-choices folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory. Alternatively, install the zip through the WordPress Plugins installer.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place a query in your ACF choices box in this form: %%QUERY%% : SELECT field1 AS text, field2 AS value FROM ....
  4. Browse to a Post or the Options Page where you just added the dynamic query and ensure that the choices are properly being populated.
