Checkbox field

The Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) Checkbox field is supported in Beaver Themer via a field connection shortcode.

Getting started

To get started, create your Checkbox field in ACF and use the shortcode to display the Checkbox field on your pages or posts. You can use the shortcode inside any module that supports HTML such as a HTML or Text Editor module.

info

The Checkbox field connection can output either the Value or Label from the Checkbox field Return Format setting.

Shortcode

Here is an example of the Beaver Themer Checkbox field connection shortcode. The Checkbox shortcode can output your choices in three formats text, unordered list, ordered list and this example uses the ordered list format.

[wpbb post:acf type='checkbox' name='' checkbox_format='ol']

The name='' attribute is where you enter your Checkbox field name.

    • Format (select_format='') - Choices are Text (default), Ordered List and Unordered List.

      • Text - Displays the Select field choices inline inside a <p> tag and comma separated.
      • Ordered List - Displays the Select field choices in an ordered list (<ol>).
      • Unordered List - Displays the Select field choices in an unordered list (<ul>).

The Beaver Themer Checkbox field connection shortcode also supports Checkbox fields added to the ACF Options page by adding site:acf_option to the field connection shortcode.
