  • Resolved Flavia Bernardez


    Hi Kolja!

    Again your plugin is amazing, but I have a problem I can’t resolve it:

    I’m using ACF for catching imdb id from a CPT. So in one of them, I have a repeater field that saves several imdb movies:

    Example 1

    And this is my code on the template:

     <?php if( have_rows('peliculas') ): ?>
                        <ul class="lista">
    			            <?php while( have_rows('peliculas') ): the_row();
    				            // vars
    				            $spain_title = get_sub_field('titulo_spain');
    				            $movie = get_sub_field('imdb_id');
    				            $movie_imdb = imdb_connector_get_movie($movie);
                                <li class="lista-pelicula">
                                        <span><?php echo $spain_title ?></span>
                                        <span><?php echo $movie_imdb['title'] ?></span>
    			            <?php endwhile; ?>
    	            <?php endif; ?>

    But the info “title original” doesn’t show:

    Example 2

    How can I resolve this? I tried with all the samples in ACF support page: foreach, etc… And I can’t draw the info…

    Thanks so much!

    This is something that’d take ages to resolve through forums. If you have Slack, please contact me via my Slack name thaikolja in the network, because I have a lot of questions.

    When we’ve found the solution, we’ll post it here so others can benefit from it as well.

    After a direct conversation with @flabernardez, we managed to fix it. Here is the new code with comments:

    	/** Make sure we get the right rows */
    	/** We read the name of the object containing the repeater field */
    	$parent_field_name = "peliculas";
    	/** Now we get all its values */
    	$parent_field_value = get_field( "peliculas" );
    	/** We count the values */
    	$parent_field_count = count( $parent_field_value );
    	/** We only want to display anything if there's at least one movie entered in the row */
    	if ( $parent_field_count ) {
    		/** Now we start to go through the rows */
    		foreach ( $parent_field_value as $field => $value ) {
    			/** We use the IMDb ID as default selector because it's more precise */
    			$selector = $value["imdb_id"];
    			/** If there's no IMDb ID entered, we use the Spanish title */
    			if ( ! $selector ) {
    				$selector = $value["titulo_spain"];
    			/** Now we get all the details from the current movie */
    			$movie_details = imdb_connector_get_movie( $selector );
    			/** If it fails for some reason, we stop and add an error message to the debug.log file */
    			if ( ! $movie_details ) {
    				error_log( "The entered movie title or IMDb ID did not return any movie." );
    			<!-- This is how we display the values in HTML -->
    			<ul class="lista-pelicula">
    											<span class="movie-title">
    												<?php echo $movie_details["title"]; ?>
    					<span class="movie-title">
    												<?php echo $movie_details["imdb_id"]; ?>
