  • Thanks John for the reply.

    What I wish to do is create a page to display the data of a custom post type on the frontend, so in that page all the fields should be “read only” and not editable.

    I can create a page template for this purpose and display the data using HTML and PHP code. However my custom post type has multiple custom fields from different types – text, date, photos, reference to other posts, etc. Therefore it will require some coding to display and style all the information correctly (i.e. using rows, grouping fields together, etc.).

    Since acf_form already renders all the fields in the right structure on the frontend, I thought there might be some way to use it (or something else) also for the purpose of displaying the data without editing it.
