ACF Quick Edit Fields

Description

WordPress plugin which adds Quick Edit functionality to Advanced Custom Fields Plugin (Pro and Free 5+.

Features

  • Show ACF field values in List views
    Supported ACF Fields.
  • Supports Post, Term and User list tables
  • Scalar Columns (Like Text, Number, …) can be made sortable
  • Edit ACF Field values in Quick edit and Bulk edit

Usage

In the Fieldgroup editor:

Column View:

  • Show Column will sho a column in the WP List Table.

  • Sortable Column will make the column sortable. This only works with primitive Field types like Text, Number, Range and so on.

  • Column weight gives you an option to take control of the column order. The higher the weight, the more to the right the column will be. Present columns will have defaults weights of multiples of 100 starting with zero for the checkbox column. For example to place an image column between the checkbox (column weight = 0) and title (clumn weight = 100) choose a value between 0 and 100.

Editing

Toggle QuickEdit and Bulk Edit to enable Editing in the List table view.

Location Rules

The plugin follows ACFs location rule logic as far as possible. If you have a field group that is only applies to posts in a specific category or with a certain post starus, then columns and quick edit will only show up, if you have filtered the posts by that category ar post status.

FAQ

When will you support the Non-ACF Field XYZ?

Presumbly I won’t – I’m sorry. However, there are some plugin filters and actions that might come in handy, if you decide to write an implementation by yourself.

I even wrote a tutorial page on how to write our own field type integration.

I found a bug. Where should I post it?

Please use the issues section in the GitHub-Repository.

I will most likely not maintain the forum support forum on wordpress.org. Anyway, other users might have an answer for you, so it’s worth a shot.

I’d like to suggest a feature. Where should I post it?

The struggle to add custom fields to admin columns is finally over. This plugin has revolutionized the user experience for our clients. I've been using it from GitHub for a while now and I'm glad it's finally on the WordPress plugin repository. In my opinion, this is a necessary companion to Advanced Custom Fields.

It seems that in some updates more acf support gets added, but there is a large list of unsupported fields still to be added. That being said, (currently) this lack of 100% support does prohibit me from using it in this specific situation. If the plugin only works as desired some of the time for a majority of the frequently used custom fields in my development flow then it is just not applicable to me. And I simply can't afford to write custom code every time a field isn't supported beyond simple column viewing with the end goal to save time. So, I am now back where I started having to manually edit tons of posts because the specific field doesn't have "quick/edit" functionality in a plugin named "ACF Quick Edit Fields". It's a shame because this plugin is halfway to perfect and I am sure people would pay for this time-saving functionality if all of ACF was 100% supported.

Using WP 5.2.4, ACF PRO 5.8.5 and Polylang 2.6.5. Was just a simple and quick thought, that it could be more comfortable for the client. Ending up sitting an hour to figure out how it works. Didn't get it. Could have done more important work in this time...
