ACF Columns

Description

With the ACF Columns plugin it is possible to arrange ACF fields in column groups in the post editor

New version now works in the new ACF 5.7

Conditional Logic can now be used over different columns with the new ACF 5.7

For each column add a Column Field to your field group and define the width for this column. You can select between 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, etc. columns. To close a row you have to add a Column Field with the value ‘Reset’.

This plugin works only with the ACF PRO (version 5.4.0 or higher).

ACF conditional logic doesn’t works across different columns

If you are using a ACF version prior to 5.7 you can’t use the ACF conditional logic on fields across different columns.

Unfortunately, the problem is how ACF uses conditional logic. Both of the conditional logic fields (the conditional logic field and the field containing the value for the logic) must have the same parent element in the DOM.

However, since the column plugin have to modify the DOM tree, so that the columns can be split, the conditional logic only works in one column.

Reviews

A good start

I actually tried to use this plugin but found it awkward and it broke the visual layout of the admin entry fields. Having said that, it is a creative use of ACF and does have numerous possibilities and I could see how this could work in the right circumstances. If the WordPress / ACF API did allow setting up rows with columns in the same manner as this plugin, it would be awesome. A good start!

Great Great Great plugin!

I was trying to customize the layout of frontend form and couldn’t do it with JS. detach and append wasn’t working, advanced custom field wasn’t saving field contents and many more problem. But this thing worked perfectly. Thanks to the developer.

Please add some screenshot and more descriptive info here. I was confused and couldn’t decide if this is the plugin I am looking for.
