Hi guys, I would like to see a special options for fields “shared” between different post-type or pages or else in order to have their values “Shared”. So, for example.
I create a Repeatable box called “Partner Logo” for a specific Template Page. Supposing I need to add the same box into another page, with different template. Actually I have to add the possibility to see that “box” even into that page, and i have to RECOMPILE all fields. Alternatively I can put these fields into “options” but then I have to put them manually in different pages. So this should be really useful in some cases. I don’t know if it’s possible or not, but I hope you can consider my suggestion. Sorry if explanation is not clear, I will try to explain it better if necessary!
This may be something that gets added to ACF. I know that the developer is thinking about it.
There are some current options.
ACF ?: https://github.com/tybruffy/ACF-Reusable-Field-Group/ there are several forks of this one, I’m not sure which on to use.
There is also mine that works with ACF5: https://github.com/Hube2/acf-reusable-field-group-field
and I have this one that has a field group duplicator if you enable it that will copy field groups to multiple options pages: https://github.com/Hube2/acf-options-page-adder
and there is this one that lets you build field groups with code that will also let you share fields in multiple groups. https://github.com/fewagency/fewbricks
Great! I would be excited to see that functionality implemented into v5 core soon! 🙂 Any plan?
