Dynamic tag for a group field inside of a repeater field

@Louis, what is the correct syntax for a dynamic tag to reference a group field inside of a repeater field:

I know that for a group field we can use:


What if this is within a repeater, how can we access it?

Using the dynamic inserter doesn’t give any hints as there doesn’t appear to be a way to select the repeater as the Location:

Thanks in advance.

Hello @StrangeTech,

You should normally be able to access group fields within a repeater from the Dynamic Selector.

It isn’t currently possible to refer to a repeater group field through the dynamic inserter UI, but you should be able to retrieve the field value by using the following: {acfrepeater=your_group_name=false=group_field_name}

Hope that helps.


This works perfectly, thank you @Louis! That really helps.

Just out of curiosity, what is the significance of the false parameter?

Hello @StrangeTech,

That would be for the fallback, which I see at present isn’t properly displayed on the backend.


@Louis, just a quick follow up, without frontend rendering on, this works flawlessly. With frontend rendering on, it is coming back as [object Object].

Show in REST API is enabled and other fields work correctly, so it is specific to these Repeater + Group fields.
