Flexible Content Preview for Advanced Custom Fields

Description

Transforms ACF’s flexible content field’s layout list into a modal with image previews.

Image Conventions

  • The size of the image should be 732 x 300.
  • They should be named based on the layout’s name (text_block) with underscores converted to dashes (text-block.jpg).

Image Location

Images should be placed in your theme. Be fault, images are located here: THEME/lib/admin/images/acf-flexible-content-preview.

Also note that you can filter this path, but it MUST be in your theme:

add_filter( 'acf-flexible-content-preview.images_path', $path );

NOTE: The path should not have a trailing beginning or trailing slash!

Additionally, you could filter all keys and/or images:

add_filter( 'acf-flexible-content-preview.images', $images );

This works great. I have many custom tweaks done to the post edit page and so far I haven't noticed any conflicts. The only thing I wish was that there was a filter to adjust the image size so I could easily do 4 across instead of 3.
