Give Advanced Custom Fields rights to Editors? (2 posts)

    Just wanted to know how to let Editors on my site access the custom Fields sections as by default custom fields menu is visible only to administrators.

    I do not want to give admin rights to every user for obvious reasons. Kindly help !!

    Admin access is required for setting up ACF. But editors can use the custom fields and edit their values when editing a post or page. This should work for most people. If you don't trust a user to get admin rights, would you give him/her access to ACF settings?

    You may be able to use a plugin like User Role Editor to give more rights to specific users, but you would have to dig to find the right capability names.
