Page link to archives?

  • Hi Guys,

    Fairly new to ACF, I always just coded what I needed into the theme but started using sage development theme from roots and they recommend ACF so I thought I’d check it out…

    Anyway, I’m struggling to find a way to be able to set a field that can select a link to an archive page, how can this be done?

  • That would depend on what version of ACF you’re using. If you’re using ACF4 (from the wordpress.org) then you’ll need to use a URL field, or with some work a text field.

    If you’re using ACF5 which is currently only available here https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/pro/, then there are a couple of other options. The page link field in ACF5 has options not available in ACF4 and there is the new Link field type. For a complete list of field types in ACF5 see this https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/.

  • URL field it is then!

  • Will free version of ACF 5 become available at some point? Really this archive link feature is the only thing I feel is missing in most use cases I’ve come across so far.

  • The developer has said that a free version of ACF5 will be released this year, that’s all that I really know.
