Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) Disable ACF in Backend


Disable ACF in Backend

  • Hey there, i’ve recently discovered a backend-error (luckily only on Win XP-IE 8-11). We use the Avia-Template Builder to style the different pages and when we want to insert a image in a text-box, it only responds with a tiny_mce.js error.

    Nevertheless we’ve found a dirty workaround: Is it possible to disable all the ACF-Stuff except for a special Post-Type?

    I know, you can enable/disable the customfields based on pages, categories… but the backend still loads the js & css – stuff!

    Hi @pixelsmart

    Is the issue stemming from an ACF field, or is the ‘image insert’ a part of the Avia-Template Builder plugin?

    You should be able to hook into the “acf/input/admin_enqueue_scripts” action as documented here

    and register the ACF scripts.

    The ACF scripts are:

    and the styles are

    Hope that helps.

    P.S. I would also contact the developer of the other plugin to ask that they provide compatibility with ACF


  • Hey Elliot, thanks for your fast reply.

    Dequeue-ing the .js files works, but now i get the error
    “Uncaught ReferenceError: acf is not defined”

    the Admin-Page still loads some .js stuff:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    (function($) {
    	// vars
    	acf.post_id = 3590;
    	acf.nonce = "341a2fa2dd";
    	acf.admin_url = "";
    	acf.ajaxurl = "";
    	acf.wp_version = "3.7.1";
    	// new vars
    	acf.o = {"post_id":3590,"nonce":"341a2fa2dd","admin_url":"http:\/\/\/wp-admin\/","ajaxurl":"http:\/\/\/wp-admin\/admin-ajax.php","wp_version":"3.7.1"};

    Hi @pixelsmart

    Yes, the acf object needs to exist for some variables. Perhaps you can define it like so:

    acf = {};

    If you put that in your js file or even in an inline script tag on the admin page, ACF should work.
