Advanced Custom Fields (ACF)

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! Whether you need to display a single value or generate content based on a more complex query, the out-of-the-box functions of ACF make templating a dream for developers of all levels of experience.

Any Content, Fast.
Turning WordPress into a true content management system is not just about custom fields. Creating new custom post types and taxonomies is an essential part of building custom WordPress sites. Registering post types and taxonomies is now possible right in the ACF UI, speeding up the content modeling workflow without the need to touch code or use another plugin.

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.

ACF is a super helpful plugin! Both the free and paid version is awesome! And the support is very helpful. A suggestion: Better and more detailed control on where the custom fields is placed in the back end screen.

Assistenza da porcilaia, non funziona con woocommerce tema botiga. Non spendete soldi.
7 novembre 2023
I am an artist, and I am trying to write a Wordpress coded site to host my paintings. ACF is just what I needed to add a "Paintings" object to my nav bar, and to add fields like, "price", "book a call", and availability of my painting to my Add New painting page option on my nav bar. ACF is a very helpful plugin.

This used to be the best of the best - since WP Engine took over, the bugs and issues are legion! It has become one of the most frustrating and awful plugins to work with. So much of our sites are based on the old, good version. Seeing about alternatives at this point.
