I have a pretty complex project I’ve been working on for some time, and I’d like to know if ACF alone, or ACF PRO is a good fit for my goals. I’m new to the plugin (though I’ve used it for just a bit of data), and think regular users would have a much better understanding.
This page is a bit broken (wrong sized image gallery, shortcodes not showing content, etc), but you get the idea of the layout. I want to stop using just shortcodes to design my page (it’s a mess), and create a page template and various ACF fields to fill out. I’m thining:
-Image Gallery (list of images for the shortcodes ultimate gallery)
-Text Area (or some other setup for contact info)
-Map or Map ID (not sure how I’ll handle this yet)
I THINK ACF would be amazing for this, but I’m not entirely sure. I’m also wondering if the Flexible Content field would be of any use, as I’m still quite confused by that, though it seems it could be used for my goals.
I am using it on ANightInBurlington, but I’m currently in the middle of refactoring a lot of the code. I originally came up with a very clever use of Pages, page templates, and ACF, but I’m now adding custom post types to organize the data a bit more.
Either way, while it may not be visible in the current version of the site, ACF has proven extremely powerful, and makes custom meta boxes / information for anything a breeze.
2022 was a big year for Advanced Custom Fields, with more capabilities, a new generation of ACF Blocks, a refreshed UI, and a new home. Our year in review post looks at advancements we’ve made and offers a glimpse of the future. https://t.co/HahJUCcyH4
