    I’m looking at ACF as a way to build a user-generated library of plants.

    However to keep things simple for the users, I dont want them to access the wp-admin backend, but was looking to keep the user on the frontend (perhaps using a custom theme template?).

    Is this possible with ACF ‘out of the box’? Or would I need to install/purchase another addon/plugin?


  • You could use ACF’s built-in form functionality (see: If you want more fine-grained control, I know others have used ACF with Front End Edit (, which is probably the most popular and stable plug-in for inline editing.

    You could also try a plug-in I’ve been developing, X-Editable-ACF ( I can almost guarantee you’ll run into bugs or something that doesn’t work, but its worth a look if you’re comfortable with PHP.
