simple_fields_fieldgroup – Retrieve values from all fields in a field group.

This function works like a shortcut to running simple_fields_value(slugs) with all slugs already entered. Depending if the field group is repeatable or not, simple_field_value or simple_fields_values will be used.


mixed simple_fields_value( string $field_slug [, int $post_id, mixed $options] )


The slug or the is of the field group that you want to get all field values for.

Id of the post to get values from. Defaults to the current post in the loop.

An optional set of options as array or query string to send to field type. This is a way to send options to the field type so it can modify values before return, or modify the output in any way. So far, only a few field types support options.

Return value

Mixed, but probably array, depending on how many field the group has (just one field, and not repeatable = no array for you!)


$field_group_values = simple_fields_fieldgroup("myFieldGroupSlug");

    Is there a typo on this page? At the top I think the example should be “simple_fields_fieldgroup” rather than “simple_fields_value”

    How can we retrieve and display two or more field groups in one post? I’ve got two groups within my posts and the function simple_fields_fieldgroup(); only works once for the first call when written like this:

    $imgsbottom = simple_fields_fieldgroup(“cfsf_event_galeria”);
    $vidssbottom = simple_fields_fieldgroup(“cfsf_event_videos”);

    Any clue?

      Found the trick. I had this:

      $imgsbottom = simple_fields_fieldgroup(“1”);
      $vidssbottom = simple_fields_fieldgroup(“2”);

      and calling the the second group right below the first did the trick, no idea why:

      $imgsbottom = simple_fields_fieldgroup(“1”);
      $vidssbottom = simple_fields_fieldgroup(“2”);

    How would i incorporate this into


    $selected_value = simple_fields_get_post_value(get_the_id(), array(1,1), true);

    $theImageURL = wp_get_attachment_url($selected_value);
    echo '’;

    to show multiple images from the 1 post connector

    How do I output a repeatable fieldgroup (in other words echo it with all the values it holds) on a page? The above doesn’t really tell me. Thanks.
