Related Posts in Bricks using Post Object in a ACF Repeater

In the Bricks forum a user asks:


I have an ACF repeater field with name book_translations. Inside that I have a Post Object field where I select a related woocommerce product for a post and has name book_for_selected_language. In the front end I’m trying to output the featured image of the selected product using an image element and the dynamic shortcode {acf_book_translations_book_for_selected_language} but nothing is rendering.

How can I get the featured image from the post object that lies inside a repeater field? Do I need to write a custom function and call it using echo?

This Pro tutorial for Bricks users provides the steps to output posts of another post type related to the current single post via ACF Post Object sub field inside a Repeater.
