Hi There ! @elliot is really doing a major job with this plugin.
I am currently using ACF & have cheated a CPT ‘Members’ and guess what ?
I’m wondering how I can use ACF for letting identified mebers (ie those with an email attached to their CPT..) access a certain category of posts.
My first question would be how to build a front end form querying the ‘member’s’ email & checking it agains existing email’s in the CPT…
Then of course , I would like to grant access / visibility to an otherwise hidden menu item / category of of post.
I ‘m sure his requires building a widget, which is kind of OK ( 🙁 ), andonot the subject here (…), but my question is more about bringing the ACF / email query to the frontend in a form ..
Has anyone come accross or done a similar thing using ACF ?
Many thanks for your help ,
Thanks for your reply.
Of course, I understand this was beyond the the use of ACF, but I thought I’d just give it a shot anyway, as I saw that use of ACF forms was mentionned on the forum & that these topics seemed remotely related …
About breaking the subjet into separate tasks: my thoughts exactly, so I would start by asking myself how to query & test an ACF CPT field from the front end (this obviously would require that I have a frontend widget constructed, installed & declared, and this IS outside the scope 🙂 )
Any hint on this particular task, as my starting point.
And again many thanks for your continued interest in other people’s issues !
