Most fascinating thing with ACF is that with just a little cleverness you dont need Custom content types plugins, and bloat of code. And can use ACF for that, tune/fine it as you wish.

I registered few custom content types in functions.php, basically clone of post type and with ACF removed from view all i want.

It is not only about removing things from edit view.
It is more about complexity of ACF. Non custom content type can beat so many custom fields options ACF has. ACF id focused on custom fields more than any custom content type plugin.

So in some future upgrade you wont lack options, for sure. And you have real custom content type, best of both worlds, without unnecessary thousands lines of code.

One suggestion, despite it doesnt influence stars. Review of documentation on plugin homepage. If i in many cases find right code on Google, different forums, and not in documentation, then something is wrong.

One plugin to rule them all

No support on how to get it to work

This plugin looked great,

but it doesn't tell you what to do after you install the plugin. You can add fields to pages or posts, I got that far, but after that I was clueless what to do next. Like someone said before, the support/documentation is a maze with bits and pieces of instructions and there is no clear path to follow to get this plugin to work.

Guess I'll move on to something else, because there is no response on the support forum either.

no acf, no full grown wordpress

The reason wordpress as we know it today is so viable in creating beautiful websites is mostly thanks to ACF. Without this beautiful plugin I won't be able to create websites as i make them today.

Thank you elliot.

Absolutely essential plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

I know WordPress is designed to be a blogging platform, blah, blah! But any CMS worth it's salt needs to have flexibility at it's core.

Whilst WordPress is pretty flexible, it comes into it's own when paired with Advanced Custom Fields. There are so many options to use this plugin to really squeeze every last drop of customisability out of WordPress templating and also build a backend worth using.

I highly rate this plugin and, to be perfectly honest, if it didn't exist, i would probably have moved on from using WordPress by now.

Great plugin, Great plugin author. Enough said.

Excellent Plugin

Easy to use, and works like you expect. Didn't run into any problems.
A recommendation for everyone who wants to customize their edit screens!

Incredibly Powerful
By , for WP 3.9.1

If you're like me, and you use WordPress for more than just a blog, or news site, you know how hard it can be to get proper urls, organization of posts / pages, etc. This plugin gives you all of the power you need, and does so elegantly. The functionality offered here should absolutely be contained within the core build, but I'll take it however I can get it.
