Used to output additional HTML before or after a field’s input.


  • Added in version 5.0.0


do_action( 'acf/render_field', $field );
  • $field (array) The field array containing all settings.


This action provides modifiers to target specific fields. The following action names are available:

  • acf/render_field Applies to all fields.
  • acf/render_field/type={$type} Applies to all fields of a specific type.
  • acf/render_field/name={$name} Applies to all fields of a specific name.
  • acf/render_field/key={$key} Applies to all fields of a specific key.


This example demonstrates how to output additional HTML after a field.


function my_acf_render_field( $field ) {
    echo '<p>Some extra HTML.</p>';

// Apply to all fields.
add_action('acf/render_field', 'my_acf_render_field');

// Apply to image fields.
// add_action('acf/render_field/type=image', 'my_acf_render_field');

// Apply to fields named "hero_text".
// add_action('acf/render_field/name=hero_text', 'my_acf_render_field');

// Apply to field with key "field_123abcf".
// add_action('acf/render_field/key=field_123abcf', 'my_acf_render_field');



In order to hook-in before ACF outputs any field HTML, use a priority less than 10 with either the “global” or “type” action names.
