I’m working on a site with 109 field groups, 22 post types, and 28 taxonomies. A single user has 129 custom fields by checking with a quick jQuery(‘.acf-field’).length.
It’s very handy when editing a post type I can just click the gear in the title bar to jump to the field group. I frequently use this to get field names and keys.
I got annoyed that there isn’t a button to edit field groups for taxonomies or user profiles. Figured I should leave an official feature request to get the “edit field group” button for field groups and taxonomies.
I was able to add that in with a single function. It works by hooking in the “acf/pre_render_fields” filter and just dropping an element there. When jQuery has loaded, it finds those “handles” and locates the field group title (h2 tag) and creates a link to the field group. The handle is only necessarily because the h2 tags do not have any ACF information — particularly the post id of the field group.
Of course if Elliot were to implement this, he could do it much better. But this has made my life a lot easier, so I thought I should share it.
