Repeater (Pro)

The Repeater field provides a neat solution for repeating content – think slides, team members, CTA tiles and alike.
ACF offers a dedicated field type called Repeater, whereas MetaBox provides the Group field exclusively. However, enabling the 'clonable' setting of the MetaGroup effectively transforms it into a repeater.
Repeater acts as a parent to a set of sub fields which can be repeated again and again. What makes this field type so special is its versatility. Any kind of field can be used within a Repeater, and there are no limits to the number of repeats either (Unless defined in the field settings).
Advanced Views supports nested groups without limitations.

Step by step guide

Select your repeater field Group, then select the repeater Field from the dropdown.
Enable Slider, by selecting an optional library from the list.
Switch to the Sub Fields tab, and assign the Group sub fields.
Click on the Update button to save your View.
Copy the shortcode into the post, page or CPT where you want to display the fields.
Fill out the fields as required, then click Publish or Update to save your page or post.

Nested repeaters

Nested repeaters are fully supported in Advanced Views without limitations. To display a nested repeater, follow these steps:
a) Create a new View ('Primary'):
  1. 1.
    On the Fields tab, click the 'Add field' button.
  2. 2.
    Choose the repeater field.
  3. 3.
    After selecting the repeater field, you'll see a new 'Sub-fields' tab appear in the row. Click on it.
  4. 4.
    Select all the fields you want to display, including the sub-field with the repeater type.
  5. 5.
    Save the current View.
b) Create a new View ('Internal'):
  1. 1.
    On the Fields tab, choose your group in the 'parent group' field.
  2. 2.
    In the parent field, select the 'repeater sub-field' from the previous step.
  3. 3.
    Click the 'Add field' button and add all the sub-fields you want to display.
  4. 4.
    Save the current View.
c) Amend the 'Primary' View:
  1. 1.
    Find the 'repeater' field in the fields list.
  2. 2.
    Open the 'Sub-fields' tab and locate the target 'repeater' sub-field.
  3. 3.
    Fill out the "View" setting by choosing the 'Internal' View.
  4. 4.
    Save the current View.
You're done! Now you can copy the shortcode of the 'Primary' View and paste it into the target location. This enables you to create as many nested levels as needed.
