Home Forums Gutenberg no_fields_assigned_message



  • In the changlog…

    “Developers who wish to modify the default advisory text can do so with the new acf/blocks/no_fields_assigned_message filter which offers 2 parameters: the message to be displayed and the name of the block it will be displayed on.”

    The documentation hasn’t kept up, does anyone have a code snippet for this filter please?

  • For anyone who passes this way;

    add_filter ('acf/blocks/no_fields_assigned_message', 'no_fields_message', 10, 2);
    function no_fields_message($message, $block_name) {
           if ($block_name === "acf/my-block") {
               $message = "Nothing to see here, please move along";
        return $message;
  • Here are two additions in case you a) want to have a unified message for all ACF blocks without ACF fields or b) want the message to disappear completely.

    // ACF Blocks: Alter message for all ACF blocks that contain no ACF fields
    function no_fields_message($message) {
      $message = __('No fields for this block', 'projectname');
    	return $message;
    add_filter ('acf/blocks/no_fields_assigned_message', 'no_fields_message', 10, 2);
    // ACF Blocks: Remove no-fields message for all ACB blocks without ACF fields
    add_filter( 'acf/blocks/no_fields_assigned_message', '__return_empty_string' );
