Hello i have form with nested repeater field, all data in nested repeater group saving in database like this: a:6:{i:0;a:4:{s:5:"title";s:21:"Initial ";s:11:"description";s:78:"Please show identify.";}}

in database all ok, but how i can get title value, description value, when i try get via get_post_meta, for example:
get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), 'part_0_module[0][title], true ) - nothing, part_0_module[0][title] - this my field name.

Can you help me solve this problem and get data?

You should use unserialize() function to access data.

For example:

$data = get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), 'field_name', true );
$data = unserialize($data);

// Print the data
  • get_post_meta(); Should handle unserializing. Aug 30, 2017 at 13:03
