How to use the repeater field in Advanced Custom Fields WordPress Plugin (ACF) for free

Advanced Custom Fields it’s the most powerful wordpress plugin that you can use to create custom fields. You can add custom fields such as images, text, editor, radio button, color picker, date etc. and attach them to any post type, page, custom post type you desire.

Then, with few lines of php code you can output them in the front end. But I am sure this are things you already know about Advanced Custom Fields Plugin.

If you used this plugin a lot, it means that you know that the repeater field (which is very helpful in some cases and themes development) has been removed since version 3.2.6 in the basic version of the plugin, and now it’s  available only as a paid add-on (25 AUD).

But there are good news. You can still use the repeater filed for free. All you have to do is go to wordpress plugin repository by following this address  and download version 3.2.5 (svn), or use this direct download link

Install the plugin to your wordpress theme by uploading it, and you will notice that the repeater field it’s there and working like a charm. Do NOT update the plugin as the repeater field will go away.

What's your reaction?

      Unfortunately, in wordpress 4.1 you have to go to custom fields>settings and enter the activation code.

      I got the same problem… Most recent wordpress version, svn version 3.2.5 and 3.2.4 tried to no avail… This feels like when Livezilla decided to go pro… It seems like they revised all their prior revisions to remove the repeater field from them… We need the files for that previous revision from another source…
