Description

Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) turns WordPress sites into a fully-fledged content management system by giving you all the tools to do more with your data.

Use the ACF plugin to take full control of your WordPress edit screens, custom field data, and more.

Add fields on demand.
The ACF field builder allows you to quickly and easily add fields to WP edit screens with only the click of a few buttons! Whether it’s something simple like adding an “author” field to a book review post, or something more complex like the structured data needs of an ecommerce site or marketplace, ACF makes adding fields to your content model easy.

Add them anywhere.
Fields can be added all over WordPress including posts, pages, users, taxonomy terms, media, comments and even custom options pages! It couldn’t be simpler to bring structure to the WordPress content creation experience.

Show them everywhere.
Load and display your custom field values in any theme template file with our hassle-free, developer friendly functions!

Simply beautiful and intentionally accessible.
For content creators and those tasked with data entry, the field user experience is as intuitive as they could desire while fitting neatly into the native WordPress experience. Accessibility standards are regularly reviewed and applied, ensuring ACF is able to empower as close to anyone as possible.

I use the ACF Pro plugin.I have been trying to insert dynamic short code with any ACF input field for a day. Whatever I did either nothing appeared or just bulk html code.But it is completely hopeless. I really just want to create an entry-dependent dynamic gallery, so that I can create image gallery portfolios with the Projects on the Divi site. I tried to insert a gallery. But it was impossible.I tried using WYSIWYG Editor to create a formatted text box but that was also hopeless. Bulk html code appeared on the page instead of formatted text. I could only add simple basic fields to the project. A day was wasted on this. I wasted my time perfectly.I couldn't find a single solution to create a proper Portfolio page to prepare with Theme Builder.

This plugin was used by a previous developer to build a client's site. They paid a large amount of money to have a website developed but now have to pay someone again to re do the whole site. The issue is that the plugin cannot be updated without a Pro Key. This means that if your site was built with this plugin, then as soon as you stop paying for a key or you change developers, your whole site will be left with a huge security issue as your out of date plugin will render your whole site vulnerable. There are much better ways of achieving the same things you need to do. Beware and stay away from this plugin.

Amazing plugin, helps a lot to develop websites, especially the PRO version. Never had problems after updates (Free & Pro), and many updates bring nice improvements. And very important from my point of view: well documented! Thanx 🙂
