Advanced Custom Fields Viewer

Description

If you are working with a large number of fields in Elliot Condon’s Advanced Custom Fields, chances are you manually wrap print_r inside of pre tags while building themes. Sometimes you just need all the fields you are working with more accessible and out of the way. You will be able to bounce back and forth between fields on your current page and the options page if available, and quickly close the menu once done.

Features

  • Viewer button hidden until needed in the top left corner of your theme.
  • 3 different color schemes for the front end viewer.
  • Supports viewing of non Advanced Custom Fields arrays! Just use acfv( $array ).

Reviews

Incredibly helpful

I’ve stumpled accross this plugin by accident, because I’m developing a custom theme with ACF.

After installation, I was disappointed, that nothing changed..until I found the button on the frontend.

This plugin is so incredibly helpful, after one day using it, I can’t imagine working without it in the future. It’s awesome.

I love it, and you will love it too. Guaranteed!

Dramatically increases productivity

This plugin saves so much time when building out sites that depend on Advanced Custom Fields. For very large sites, it sometimes reduces development time by about 20%. I use ACF Field Viewer in conjunction with this ACF filter, which shows the field names inline on every edit screen that contains ACF field groups: https://gist.github.com/jcallery/31af5747e5ead8894bd9
