  • Yeah. I totally get it now. I just like the backend for ACF so much, it’s kinda too bad there’s not something like Views for it, even if it’s kinda basic.

  • Yeah, it’s nice. And the developer has been responsive. We’ll probably look more into Types and their Views plugin. Seems like that’s more the right speed for us non-devs.

  • Ah, good to know. Thanks for explaining. But functionality like that might open it up to a lot more people purchasing, and therefore make it the kind of thing that could pay some people’s salaries. Right now ACF is limited to devs, which is really only a small portion of the WP users out there.

    I saw a number of plugins, including one that adds a widget, where you select the field group and it displays it. However, it didn’t work for me, and threads about it said that it had been implemented in ACF 5. I assume only as a dev feature, not a simple widget the way that free plugin originally worked. There were several others I don’t recall.

    I am using this one currently, in my testing, and it works nicely as a basic way to just display the data from the custom fields:

  • Thanks John. That’s very helpful. The interface is just so well built, I guess it didn’t occur to me that it would be primarily for coders. That makes sense.

    Just out of curiosity, have you thought of adding (selling) an extension to display it on the front-end for non-coders? The Custom Field manager is so nicely done, I’d expect people would love whatever tool you all came up with for inserting in posts (or pages or CPTs, etc).

    Just from my searches on the it seems like quite the ecosystem of plugins were growing up around ACF, that allowed us to insert without coding. But I get the feeling most of that momentum died with ACF 5. Maybe I’m reading it wrong, just what I saw. Anyway, just a few thoughts. Thanks.
