Points 4-6 are very important. Do not skip them.

  2. In order to get access to Repeater fields you will need to go to “Section Settings”. Press the gear icon.
  3. In the settings view you’ll see an area called “Preview Settings”. Click it and select your post type and which post that shall be used.

    If you are going to use a repeater field that has repeater field as subfield you need to select that field in the Repeater field dropdown.
  4. Click “Apply & preview”
  5. Click “Update”
  6. Refresh page. (This is so all the ACF fields are properly detected. There is no reloading of widgets after selecting a preview page.)
  7. Now you will have access to Repeater fields and more in the Dynamic Tags drop down.┬áSee the “Dynamic Tags” page for what tags are available.
  8. Design the template per usual Elementor design

Continue with the Repeater template widget.
