Using Custom Find to get a simbling repeater values


Recommended Posts

In a page’s admin interface, I need a select field to be populated with the values of another repeater that exist in the current page. To create such a reference, I tried to use Edit Field > Input > Custom Find, and Selector String. But I struggle to pass the “this page” reference. Ideally, I would like to find `$page->font_style`, `font_styles` being the repeater I want the values from.

What am I missing?

to make it eve easier i use the title* field in the repeater elements as pw uses it to make the list

If I understand correctly, you are referring to the Repeater item labels, where I currently have the {title} as value, to show the item’s titles as field name?

then, for your page reference field just choose repeater_yourrepeatername in the template choice, done 🙂

I don’t understand that part, what is the page reference exactly?

hi again 🙂
actually i'm referring to the field you use in the repeater, whether or not it's the one you use as the item title in the page

as it is natively the one pw will use in a page reference field

coming to this page reference it's just the type of field easy to populate with a list of "pages" of your choice, here the repeater elements, thanks to the fact pw create a template for the the repeater elements and a page for each element (bot the most poetic sentence... guilty as charged 😄


and, in this field parameters (input tab) you just have to choose your repeater template pw has created on the fly
here, just for the example, my repeater was named... my_repeater 🙂

have a nice day

Your selector string will be "id=page.name_of_your_repeater_field, check_access=0". The "check_access=0" is so that it works for non-superusers.

In the example below I'm using a repeater field named "test_repeater".



If you repeater doesn't include the title field you'll want to choose something different in the "Label field" setting.
