See here for ACF image docs.


If image field is set to return as an array then you need store the image subfield into a variable and use the variable to output the array keys.

So in your case, it would be like this...

<?php while( have_rows('logo_list') ) : the_row();?>
     <?php $image = get_sub_field('image'); ?>
     <li><img src="<?=$image['url']?>" alt="<?=$image['alt']?>" /></li>
<?php endwhile;?>

Use the code below inside your loop to dump your $image variable data so you can see all the image sizes and other image data.

echo '<pre>' . print_r($image, true) . '</pre>';

Very strange what is happening here.

Before your loop try adding this to see all the data in the field.

<?php global $post; ?>
<?php $field = get_field('logo_list', $post->ID); ?>
<?php echo '<pre>' . print_r($field, true) . '</pre>'; ?>

Post the output when you've done this.

I have an alternative solution. Instead of using the image array in your ACF field, use the image id. Then use:

<?php $image_id = get_sub_field('image'); ?>

<?php echo wp_get_attachment_image( $image_id, 'shop_thumbnail' ) ; ?> // replace 'shop_thumbnail' with the size you want rendered.

The reason I recommend this method is

a) you can still fetch any data you want to pull out via the image id,

b) WordPress will automatically pull the alt for you,

c) WordPress will now be able to use srcsets to deliver appropriate image sizes for devices, and

d) plugins that are designed to use webp or modern image files are more compatible.

  • thank you! I used url but this also works, thanks!
