Support » Plugin: Timber » getting images from ACF relationship Field

  • Resolved riikk



    i use the the Advanced Custom Field Plugin, and want to show articles using the
    Field Type “Relation”.
    Like shown here:
    (Basic loop (without setup_postdata),
    and it worked fine in other Projects.

    Now with Timber i have Problems getting the Featured Image of a blog Post. (and the Permalink as well). All the other Stuff like Title, Excerpt, Date works fine.

    here is my Code:

    {% set relations = post.get_field('my-custom-fieldname') %}
         {% for relation in relations %}
    	<div class="span7">
    	     <article class="focus">
    		<a href="{{relation.post_link}}" >
    		<p class="intro">{{relation.post_content|excerpt(30)}}...</p>
    		<img src="{{relation.post_thumbnail.src}}" alt="" />
    		 <p>Article by {{relation.author_name}}</p>
    {% endfor %}

    i tried everything i could find regarding images in timber, but without no luck.
    thanks for feedback.

    Hi riikk, you just need to tell Timber how to interpret the data you get back from ACF, this line should do it….

    {% set relations = TimberPost(post.get_field('my-custom-fieldname')) %}

    The correct syntax for thumbnail is…

    <img src="{{relation.thumbnail.src}}" alt="" />

    (as opposed to post_thumbnail)

    Hi jarednova,

    thanks. that worked.
    in between i had it also working using the function method:

    <p>{{function('get_the_post_thumbnail', post.ID, 'medium' )}}</p>
