    Hi.
    I would like to know if I can use advanced custom fields in the results description.

    This is an example of the field (ACF is set to return the url of a file)
    <?php the_field(‘file_download’); ?>
    Result:
    http://www.mysite…../file.pdf

    Ajax pro finds the custom field {file_download} but returns the media id.
    {file_download}
    result:
    4001

    Is there a way to get the file url instead of the file ID?

    I wrote this. Maybe if you want to share it:

    add_filter( 'asp_results', 'asp_custom_field_to_title', 1, 1 );
      
    function asp_custom_field_to_title( $results ) {
      $custom_field = "super";
     
      foreach ($results as $k=&gt;$v) {
    
          $meta_value = get_field('file_download',$results[$k]-&gt;id); // ACF support
            
          if($meta_value){
             $results[$k]-&gt;title  .= " - <a href='" . $meta_value . "' target='_blank'>Download</a>";
           }
           else{
              $results[$k]-&gt;title;
           }
      }
      
      return $results;
    }

    Hi!

    Thank you very much for sharing the code, I will keep it public, so others can find it as well. It is good to know that ACF file upload fields return the media ID only.

    Best,
