Advanced Custom Fields: Link Picker Field

Description

This add on for the already established Advanced Custom Fields plugin adds a new field type called ‘Link Picker’ which allows the user to enter a URL, or select from the existing pages. It is a thin wrapper around the link selector included with the WYSIWYG field editor.

This plugin is forked from the plugin of the same name hosted at https://github.com/BIOSTALL/ACF-Link-Picker-Field. This version is hosted at https://github.com/ahebrank/ACF-Link-Picker-Field and issues and PRs should be submitted there.

Note: Advanced Custom Fields must be installed for this add-on to work.

Compatibility

This ACF field type is compatible with:

  • ACF 5
  • ACF 4

Usage

When outputting the link selection on the front end, you will have three object elements available:

  • url – The URL of the page
  • title – The title of the link, if entered
  • target – Will be either a blank string or ‘_blank’, depending on whether the user has ticked the box for the link to open in a new window/tab.

Code example:

$mylink = get_field('mylink');
var_dump($mylink);

Outputs:

array(3) {
  ["url"]=>
  string(31) "http://mysite.com/selected/url/"
  ["title"]=>
  string(10) "Link Title"
  ["target"]=>
  string(6) "_blank"
}
