Adding Options to a CPT edit.php page in CMS

  • Hey guys n gals,

    I have been surfing the web high and low to find a solution that will allow me to load in a Custom field group of options, so that they can appear above the table on my edit.php page.

    More specifically on a CPT page edit.php?post_type=mycpt

    As you can see in the screengrab, i have managed to add in content via a filter but i want to replace that with my ACF options (only like 3 options in the CF group)

    I can create a sub options page within the CPT left hand menu, but ideally i would like to display it at the top of the edit.php page, so that all the users can see it/engage with it as part of their daily flow.

    Can anyone shed any light on this, is it even possible?

    Thanks for your help/time

  • There is nothing in ACF that will let you add a field group in that location. All ACF field groups need to be associated with a single WP “Object” (post, term, user, options page).

    Also, WP does not offer any hooks to modify this page.

    There may be a way to do this using JS

    And it might be possible to use acf_form() to add a custom form there, possibly saved as options. But, to be honest, I’m not sure that would work.

  • Thanks John.

    I found and tested this:

    if ( current_user_can('manage_options') ) {
    add_action( 'load-edit.php', function() {
    	  add_filter( 'views_edit-cptname', 'function_name_to_Call' ); 

    It loads in content into that header above the table perfectly, i can load in ACF field values but i cannot get the form in.

    I haven’t tried acf_form() yet

    Maybe i’ll mess about with it first.
