Pushing Advanced Custom Fields to the Limit

August 5, 2016

The Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) Pro plugin is a game changer for WordPress.

This amazing plugin lets you visually create custom fields on the backend of WordPress. You can create fields of any type — text, radio buttons, media upload, date picker, and many more — and easily assign them to any pages or post types. Before ACF, creating these fields in PHP was an arduous and time consuming task.

And while ACF is hardly a secret any longer — it’s in use on probably millions of websites — most developers are only scratching the surface of what can be done with this plugin.

A few months ago, I had the honor of speaking at WordCamp Albuquerque about the complex uses of this plugin and how developers can take their sites to the next level.
