How does this plugin work?

The ACF Number Slider plugin adds an additional field type to Advanced Custom Fields that allows the user to set-up an integer field with a slide rule to select the value.

Each Number Slider can be configured with the following parameters:

  • Units of measurement
  • Minimum value
  • Maximum value
  • Incremental steps between values


Great idea, poor implementation

That’s really a great idea – unfortunately the plugin in its current form can not be used on a production site of high end clients.

1. Displayed initial value is zero – however it’s clearly set on the field settings panel to a specific value ( 400 in my own case ). The value gets corrected as soon as the slider gets clicked and moved.
2. Sliders twins – more specifically some sliders are generated twice.
3. There’s no option to define a default value.

Almost Perfect

I used the field in CSS for the opacity of an overlay effect. I think the styles of the slider should be inherited from the user color scheme rather than the green color included in the plugin.

Almost perfect

Just what I want, adds a slider to ACF field options.

I would suggest these improvements:
– A default value
– When the slider loads in it is at 0, even if the min value is > 0 it should load in at 20 for example.
