Awesome plugin! Have a quick question. Do you provide a URL field? I know I can use a simple text field for that but was wondering if you have a dedicated field that would be checking whether the text supplied was a valid URL or not.
Just to clarify, I mean external link such as http://www.google.com.
That’s what I assumed. Yes, there is a URL field in ACF5 for adding URLs that are checked to see if they are URLs. It doesn’t check to see if they exist but it checks that they are formatted correctly.
Thank you very much for confirming this.
I am using ACF Pro, and I added a URL Field – I would like to display it in my content, but I do not find it in your documentation/resources.
Does it work similar to the “Link Field” ?
Thanks in advance,

<a href="[acf field="field_name"]">
You would have to build your own shortcode that returns the entire
