I’ve been reading about repeater fields and all the requests for people who want front end display of ACF custom fields.
I think I am beginning to understand that front end solutions are better than queries of custom fields (from the back end) for clients. I get this.
What is the best way to build this, for example? see screenshot:
I already have built it out simple using a 3 headings, 3 dividers, and 3 text dividers (in a 3 col layout). See it here right under the give now button:
But what if I wanted to create a module (kind of like the callout module) that would allow the client to enter the statistic and the text, called “cool statistic,” and that would automatically add the divider and allow the user to pick either 2, 3 or 4 columns, OR already be set to 3 (whichever is programatically easier).
I researched repeater fields but couldn’t figure out if this is what I needed. I tried implementing the code but I’m afraid my knowledge of php is limited to common loops and wordpress queries (what I use everyday to call ACF fields in their custom post types and style them with css for the front end).
I hope this question makes sense and thank you for anyone who can help me understand how to build this!
