  • Hi @codynew

    Thank you for the question.

    You can make use of the acf/settings filter to restrict the number of people who can edit the ACF fields.

    The code will look as follows:

    add_filter('acf/settings/show_admin', 'my_acf_show_admin');
    function my_acf_show_admin($show) {
    	// provide a list of usernames who can edit custom field definitions here
    	$admins = array( 
    		'user_name_1', 'user_name_2'
    	// get the current user
    	$current_user = wp_get_current_user();
    	return (in_array($current_user->user_login, $admins));
