Last updated Jun 18, 2024


Tired of the limits of WordPress’s default fields? Do you dream of creating custom, structured data that elevates your website’s functionality and user experience? Look no further than ACF, the solution for developers seeking to unlock the full potential of WordPress.

In our introductory video, “ACF Getting Started,” we delve into the world of custom fields and explore how ACF simplifies the creation and management of these fields, providing your WordPress sites with structured data and an intuitive way to edit it. Whether you’re building a site for an auto dealership, a blog, or an ecommerce platform, ACF empowers you to craft tailored solutions that meet your unique needs.

The Limitations of Default WordPress Meta Fields

Out of the box, WordPress allows users to edit the title and content of a post or page, but what about the plethora of other data required to accurately represent complex content? Native WordPress custom fields aren’t user friendly, and don’t play well with more complex data types like dates or dropdowns. You could code extra areas of the edit screen, but that requires valuable development time and effort.

The Secret to Adding and Managing Extra Content Data

ACF revolutionizes the way you approach custom field management. Directly from the plugin’s UI, you can quickly add more than 30 different custom field types to WordPress edit screens, as well as create custom post types and taxonomies. The plugin’s field group builder allows you to create and manage highly customized data with ease, making it an ideal solution for developers seeking to extend WordPress’s functionality.

ACF PRO: Flexibility Meets Power

For those seeking even more advanced features, ACF PRO gives you access to revolutionary field types like Repeater, Flexible Content, Clone, and Gallery, and sophisticated capabilities like ACF Blocks and custom Options Pages.
