Home Forums Feature Requests Ability to display fields groups on archive pages Reply To: Ability to display fields groups on archive pages

  • How is the existence of WP editor related to the ability of adding custom fields to the posts archives? I don’t get it. We’re able to register custom fields to custom options pages, user pages and widgets, etc. There’s no editor on these pages as well.

    Maybe my explanation in the first post wasn’t clear enough. I just want to show custom fields on archive pages, but store them the same way as options pages are stored at the moment. The only difference would not using the default ‘options’ string as an ID but some auto-generated id: for example acf-archive-{post_type_name}

    An options page for archive pages could be registered automatically if the custom field group that belongs to post archive is defined.

    Fields groups could be shown before or after the posts list table.

    The only thing I’m worried about is that I haven’t found yet a proper action to hook into (I mean the action that runs before and after the posts list table). Maybe there’s no hook for such things?

    The only hooks I found are all_admin_notices and in_admin_footer.
