Home Forums ACF PRO Including ACF Pro in a Plugin Reply To: Including ACF Pro in a Plugin

  • Just throwing in my 2 cents here, I was able to use just the conditional for acf pro and it works on wp installs with acf regular and pro.

    So, in my plugin file I have:

    /* Checks to see if “is_plugin_active” function exists and if not load the php file that includes that function */
    if ( ! function_exists( ‘is_plugin_active’ ) ) {
    include_once( ABSPATH . ‘wp-admin/includes/plugin.php’ );
    /* Checks to see if the acf pro plugin is activated */
    if ( !is_plugin_active(‘advanced-custom-fields-pro/acf.php’) ) {
    /* load the plugin and anything else you want to do */

    and if my install already has acf regular, my needed pro features work, and if it has acf pro, it doesn’t load and everything works as well.
