Add unique name field for Flexible Content Field

    For a better overview if all/most Flexible Content Fields are collapsed it would be great to have not only the name of the Layout but also a name for this element.

    E.g. if you create an element for a text area with the WYSIWYG-Field that you will use twice or more on a page and the elements are collapsed you can’t identify which element contains specific text.

    How this could look like:
    The “Layout Name” field is a standard field for this element and the input is show in the header
    Editing Flexible Content Element

    This is the look if all elements are collapsed

    Hi @thomas

    Thanks for the feature request, however I’m not sure how this could be added into the core without bloating the settings UI.

    Perhaps this would be better left as a custom JS script?
    The following tutorial shows how you can listen for an acf/setup_fields event and run JS on any new HTML added to the page via ACF.

    You could look at the input value, and then append it to the layout handle.
