Hello,

• I'm using the pro version of 'Post Grid'.

• Using ACF, I have added a custom 'file' field to my custom post type ("Resources"). For this custom field in ACF, I have chosen to return the value of the file's URL (not 'File Object' or 'File ID').

• When displaying my posts with Post Grid, I can only seem to pull the file's ID. I have tested with a simple custom text field, and it displays alright, but I need to keep it as a 'file' selection field to keep things easier for the user

Thanks for any help!

Welcome to our forum.

I understand your issue, In this case i would like to suggest you to create a shortcode  for the expected output and you can use that shortcode by HTML element on layout editor

You can get access to post id by following functions.

get_the_id();

I hope this way you can display better way than meta key field.

I hope you understand.

Please let me know if you need more help.

Regards

To further clarify, I tried using the 'html' approach you mention, using an entry of: [acf field="resource_file_url"]

This, however, returns not only the URL, instead outputting: ID, file name, file type, , , file URL.
