Using ACF Repeater Field with Dynamic Content

You must have used Elementor widgets to get dynamic content from ACF custom fields. But have you ever thought of using Elementor widgets to get dynamic data from the ACF Repeater fields? If not, then why not just give it a try?

To achieve this, you can use our plugin AnyWhere Elementor Pro, which provides features that allow you to use Elementor widgets to get Repeater field content dynamically.

So in this tutorial, I will guide you to use ACF repeater fields with Elementor’s dynamic content. 

To get a better idea about it, let us consider an example of Movies post type.

Firstly to start with, we need to create a post type named Movies using CPT UI and then create custom fields for the movies post type. using the ACF Custom fields plugin. As a particular movie can have multiple casts, so I created a repeater field to represent the cast.
