enter image description hereI have added an image through advanced custom field. I want to retrieve image URL. I have tried with following code. It is returning null.

 $url = get_field('aboutus_img','aboutus');

aboutus_img = field name aboutus = field group name

Refer ACF link : Link

And use

<?php echo get_field('aboutus_img'); ?>

Choose option image url

enter image description here

This example demonstrates how to display the selected image when using the Image URL return type. This return type allows us to efficiently display a basic image but prevents us from loading any extra data about the image.

<?php if( get_field('image') ): ?>
    <img src="<?php the_field('image_field_name'); ?>" />
<?php endif; ?>
  • But why is this get_field('aboutus_img','aboutus'); returning null

  • @HK89 - try to use the actual parameters from the OP so that they can try it directly, without needed to modify the code.

ACF provides good documentation about this function, which shows that it has the following signature:

get_field($selector, [$post_id], [$format_value]);
  • $selector (string) (Required) The field name or field key.
  • $post_id (mixed) (Optional) The post ID where the value is saved. Defaults to the current post.
  • $format_value (bool) (Optional) Whether to apply formatting logic. Defaults to true.

You probably need to get the post ID, if you are working outside of a loop - like:

$url = get_field('aboutus_img', get_post_ID() );
  • No , I have tried previously with field name. It worked. but this time it Is not

  • Well, it's the right way to get the field data - it if exists ( has been saved to that post ) - you would need to debug $url to understand if it is empty or not..
