Hey Josh,

Today is another one of those days where I learned something new (I never used flexible content with bricks before) :smiley:

To prevent the duplicated sections, you need to add a condition to them and compare if {acf_get_row_layout} equals your flexible_layout_name.

If you have two possible layouts (e.g. text + image and text + text), the setup looks like this:

Flexible Content Loop on the container:


Layout conditions:

‘text_text’ and ‘text_image’ are the layout names of each layout:

@timmse i’m noticing that i still get repeated empty data tags and that they can interfere with the layout (with or without these extra conditions).

Really would love to get this working as it was a mainstay for creative clients wanting a bit of creative layout control.

In Elementor i could create Flexible content templates in Anywhere Elementor (AE) Pro (with clean previews) which would then be added to an AE F flexible content widget. Filddly but it all worked. Detailed here

Hoping there is a bricks workflow to achieve this!
