ACF 5.7.2 Pro wont give "block" as a location option

    I’m playing with ACF on my local environment after I read With the example code, I tried to get a new blog going, but can’t seem to select the location “block”. It does not appear in the list.

    Looks like the function acf_register_block does not exist in both free and paid version (5.7.2). Also, I didn’t get prompt to update my DB.

    Anything I can do? I guess a simple mistake on my end.

    Pretty sure acf_register_block isn’t available just yet unless someone else here has any insight? Either way, I’d love a sneak peek if you guys are looking for beta testers. I really do think this will be a game changer for Gutenberg.

    Looking forward to checking the feature out, especially with the new Yoast features we are releasing 🙂

  • That is *really* not clear from the article. They talk about version 5 (but no clue to which PRO version that corresponds to) and the whole section about registering blocks is written in the present. Oh well.

  • Can ACF Pro users help test this Gutenberg block option? We really need to prep for this new exciting feature!

    I have the same question! I would really like to prepare with this new function. 🙂

    Edit: so I installed the Early access version of ACF (non-pro) and it doesn’t have the acf_register_block function either. So it hasn’t dropped yet in both versions. I really though it was already there when I was reading the article 🙁

    Any word from the developers when this is going to land?

    I would also love to test that feature! 😉

  • Same for me.
    No News from ACF ?!? 🙁

    We are waiting! Would love to try it out!

  • has anyone contacted support?

    I personally would not expect ACF to be fully compatible with gutenburg until it is merged into core.

    Anyone have an update on this? I tried contacting support a couple of days ago, but no response.

    I bought recently ACF 5 PRO for use with gutentberg but for me it isn’t not compatible right now. Support did’t answer on my ticket:(

    It’s not implemented for public release, see:

  • Thanks MikeX for the link.
    I hope this option will find its way to implementation soon. I think this will be a solution for so many.

    Day after Gutenberg has been released into WordPress 5.0 core and I still don’t see a block option inside the field groups?

    Any follow ups to this would be much appreciated!
