Advanced Custom Fields Page Builder

by Big Lemon Creative

Overview


PLEASE NOTE: The following plugins or add-ons are required for this to work:

The ACF Page Builder uses the Advanced Custom Fields Flexible Content field to create a bunch of completely customisable page elements. This plugin works best when used with Bootstrap, but it isn’t essential. These elements include:

  • Banner images
  • Buttons
  • Bootstrap Content Grids
  • Image Gallery (with text and caption)
  • Raw HTML and JavaScript
  • Simple Contact Forms
  • WYSIWYG Content

Each element can be configured – see the screenshots for configuration options. Default options are background colours, wrapper classes and if the element needs to be contained (Bootstrap only!) Please get in touch or submit pull requests for any more page sections.

The ACF Page Builder was created and is managed by Big Lemon Creative.

Configuration

To configure which post types or page templates the page builder is displayed on, use the following filter in your functions.php file:

function support_acfpb( $support = array() ) {

    $support['post_type'] = array(
        'page',
        'post'
    );

    $support['page_template'] = array(
        'page-templates/page-sectioned.php'
    );

    return $support;

}
add_filter('acfpb_set_locations', 'support_acfpb', 10, 1);

Usage

We designed the functions to match the ACF syntax of get_field() and the_field(). Use the functions below to get or directly echo the sections on the front end. The ID is optional.

the_sections( $id );

OR

echo get_sections( $id );
