Support » Plugin: ACF Front End Editor » Limit ACF Front End Editor editable content?

  • Great plugin, thanks a lot!

    One question though: is there a (simplish) way to limit what kind of content is editable?
    E.G. I’d like to set page title and navigation off-limits to what ACF FEE, or rather the client, can change.

    BTW: the FEE code is somehow doubled in my navigation:
    <d contenteditable data-postid="53" data-name="wp_hd_title" data-key="wp_core"><d contenteditable data-postid="11" data-name="wp_hd_title" data-key="wp_core">Name of Page</d></d>

    can You limit editing for current Author user only?

    You can add this plugin:

    or if you just want to limit everyone to their own post EXCEPT Admins and Editors, add this code to your function.php:

    function posts_for_current_author($query) {
    	global $pagenow;
    	if( 'edit.php' != $pagenow || !$query->is_admin )
    	    return $query;
    	if( !current_user_can( 'edit_others_posts' ) ) {
    		global $user_ID;
    		$query->set('author', $user_ID );
    	return $query;
    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'posts_for_current_author');
