Does your plugin and/or its WordPress extension support printing of content that exists in WordPress as Custom Post Types with Advanced Custom Fields Pro integration to PDF?

Ex. Any of the attorney bios @ https://www.wiggin.com/people/

Additionally, here's a PDF of how this client would like it to look.

Hi,

Yes. Custom Post Types and Advanced Custom Fields supported by E2Pdf.

Here is some documentation regarding using it with WordPress: https://e2pdf.com/extensions/wordpress. You will need to use [meta key="x"] to output data from ACF.

Here is also some video examples on our YouTube channel with common usage of E2Pdf: https://www.youtube.com/e2pdf

P.S. You can test functionality with "FREE" version as we do not limit any functionality except number of "Activated" Templates and number of pages inside this Template to be sure it will fit your needs.

P.P.S. It must not be issues with creating similar PDF.

We remain at your service.

I don't think the your plugin would completely work for what our client is requesting. I tested it on a development or staging site.

The fields generated are fixed sizes. So, the custom post type content would get clipped off and not flow to the next page if it is long. Also, it outputs the ACF Pro Repeater fields as a serialized array, which I couldn't find how to display in a nice list.

Any further insights on these issues??

Hi,

To output value from serialized array it's need to use "path" attribute with [meta key="x" path="0.name"] shortcode as example.

path - Used to navigate and output value from meta field value array. To unserialize output string and detect correct path you can use services like: https://www.functions-online.com/unserialize.html

P.S. Unfortunately "foreach" iteration is not supported for ACF repeater fields but we will will check the possibility to add its support in future.

As about splitting content - it's supported by E2Pdf "HTML" object but it's a bit limited, so not sure if it can fit your needs, as main purpose of E2Pdf is to export data to static structure of PDF: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZNxz_JZ3d0

P.S. It also can be helpful to check "Actions" and "Conditions" to hide or change fields position if needed, depending if value filled or not.
