Great Plugin. Simplifies Boring Things.
By , for WP 3.9.2

Great plugin.

Adding custom meta boxes isn't hard but it's pretty boring. This plugin really takes care of some of the more annoying aspects of developing custom features.

While I still prefer making custom plugins for advanced functionality or post types, this plugin provides an excellent way to add quick additional little features to a post. For example, I just used it to add a File Picker for adding a brochure to products on a rather vanilla WooCommerce install. Quick and easy!

Thanks for the useful plugin.

Really Useful!

This plugin has helped me a lot in doing some custom work in the WordPress backend. The free version is great but I advice you to buy the PRO that's even better and has a lot of cool features :D

Perfect

Most fascinating thing with ACF is that with just a little cleverness you dont need Custom content types plugins, and bloat of code. And can use ACF for that, tune/fine it as you wish.

I registered few custom content types in functions.php, basically clone of post type and with ACF removed from view all i want.

It is not only about removing things from edit view.
It is more about complexity of ACF. Non custom content type can beat so many custom fields options ACF has. ACF id focused on custom fields more than any custom content type plugin.

So in some future upgrade you wont lack options, for sure. And you have real custom content type, best of both worlds, without unnecessary thousands lines of code.

One suggestion, despite it doesnt influence stars. Review of documentation on plugin homepage. If i in many cases find right code on Google, different forums, and not in documentation, then something is wrong.

no acf, no full grown wordpress

The reason wordpress as we know it today is so viable in creating beautiful websites is mostly thanks to ACF. Without this beautiful plugin I won't be able to create websites as i make them today.

Thank you elliot.

Absolutely essential plugin

I know WordPress is designed to be a blogging platform, blah, blah! But any CMS worth it's salt needs to have flexibility at it's core.

Whilst WordPress is pretty flexible, it comes into it's own when paired with Advanced Custom Fields. There are so many options to use this plugin to really squeeze every last drop of customisability out of WordPress templating and also build a backend worth using.

I highly rate this plugin and, to be perfectly honest, if it didn't exist, i would probably have moved on from using WordPress by now.

Great plugin, Great plugin author. Enough said.
