Yes, It works and is a great tool. Maybe is not for beginners, but if you have a little patience you can use this plugins to accomplish nice things. We use and recommend this plugin. Have a nice code day!

No walk through instructions??
By , for WP 3.8.1

I'm told this is very good and it looks like it might be what I need - if there were any decent basic instructions anywhere.

The point of a plugin is that it makes life easy - the documentation is just a maze of bits & pieces that seem to be in no particular order & all over the place - even the section entitled 'basics' told me nothing. Couldn't even find any info on how the user gets to edit the page should I manage to find out how to use this.

Gave up.

First off I gave it 3 stars because what you have here is a 5 star plugin that you cant figure out how to use....

The plugin certainly is probably one of the most capable, but if you're not a wordpress or php expert you should run away instead of wasting anymore time.

Virtually any tutorial on their site is for ancient wordpress themes like 2010, 2011 - huh? And none of them really tell you what to do accurately. Even if there is some code example they pretty much leave it up to guessing about what you would do with that code, where you would put it, etc. is all left up to the imagination of the user.

If you want to do anything like take all of those custom fields you created and use them to create a front end form forget about it if you want to try to copy and past their example - it doesn't work - you need secret knowledge but what do you expect when all the tutorials reference themes that are YEARS old.

It seems that any time anyone asked for specific code examples to make something as seemingly doable as using their software to make a front end form using the custom fields you created - the person answering the question would just point them back at the same not working tutorial.

I've tried for days myself to figure out the missing links which will allow me to do this but i can't. Reading the documentation is a combination of guessing and searching and getting it wrong countless times because they will not show you how to use the plugin properly.

I understand they probably want to sell something that makes it more user friendly, fine, but with this much hassle on this end i just cant see doing it.

If you want a front end form with custom fields and you're not psychic about how to write the code - save yourself and spend $50 for a solution that you are able to use.

Wonderfull!

Maybe my favorite wordpress plugin!!!!!
Easy to use, Great documentation!
You can buy ACF Repeater with your eyes closed, it's magic !!

Just one hope for a futur version :
- possibility of choose field type directly on the custom post (maybe with a system like ACF repeater

Great plugin

One of the best plugins in this area. Creating new fields, with ACF is so easy.. I just love it. Great Plugin

This is my favorite WordPress plugin.

This plugin not only helped our team build enterprise-level wordpress websites this year but helped us hone our development skills. The more you use ACF, the more you'll want to do. The more you want to do, the more you'll learn.
