Choice labels

Use the Field tag and field=label to get the label of the chosen value.

<Field acf_select=field_name field=label />

Use the Loop tag and field=labels for fields with multiple values.

<Loop acf_select=field_name field=labels>

Use the Loop tag and field=choices to loop through the available choices of a field.

<Loop acf_select=field_name field=choices>
Value: <Field value /><br/>
Label: <Field label /><br/>

It is a list of choices with value and label fields.


For these field types, use the Loop tag to get associated content.

Layout 2


To display multiple fields, use the acf_group attribute.

<Loop acf_group=group_field_name>
<Field sub_field_name />
<Field another_sub_field />

To display a single field within the group, combine the group field name with the sub-field name using an underscore.

<Field group_field_name_sub_field_name />

Fields from options page

ACF provides a function called acf_add_options_page to add options pages to store global settings.

To get fields from an options page, use the Field or Loop tag with the attribute from=options.
