So I apologise in advance as I am very new to ACF and while I have more or less managed to get my head around it and set up some of my fields, I am struggling to understand this plugin.
I assume I must be missing something because there is no documentation on it but my questions are:
Am I correct that the client will always see BOTH the ACF fields on each page and the VC block with the ACF icon? So if there is say 15 page layout options, ALL of these will show, regardless of wether they have used them on the page via VC?
When I selected the field from the ACF-VC dropdown I was expecting something to happen like the ACF options appeared under the dropdown OR the ACF fields only become visible at the top/bottom of the page once I had placed the element.
I think flexible content is what I need to learn in more depth (also very hard to find resources on) – but I just wanted to check the above things. Sorry if I’m being a muppet.
Secondly – is there a way to limit the dropdowns to only the ones available for that page. For example, one of my fields is only available for the homepage but still appears in the dropdown on all the other pages.
Lastly – is there any more information about the hook settings?
Thanks for your time and this plugin.
