ACF Engine Features

Collection Facet Filtering

Add ACF Engine to the list of facet filtering options for WordPress sites. In the past you would need FacetWP, Search and Filter or JetSmartFilters to be able to rapidly built and render facet filters. Each of those existing options have their various strengths and weaknesses. With ACF Engine you’re able to use the same system for every step in the creation of your data-driven site.

ACF Engine interface for registering Custom Post Types powered by Advanced Custom Fields (ACF).
Register CPT’s with a few clicks in the ACF Engine Post Type Register UI.

Custom Post Type Registration

ACF Engine projects usually begin with one or more CPT’s being registered. Whatever your requirements are, this is the starting point for your dynamic WordPress website. In as little as 20-seconds you can register a new post type at WP Admin > ACF Engine > Post Types.

Taxonomy Registration

Arguably one of the best features of WordPress core, the ability to add context to all your custom data types with custom taxonomies. With ACF Engine installed, no more need to tediously register taxonomies using code.

Core Blocks

ACF Engine comes packed with a suite of Gutenberg blocks to help you take full advantage of this advancement in WordPress front-end rendering. Ease your reliance on page builders and avoid installing multiple plugins that overlap. We take requests for any custom block type especially if you find it in a competitors block suite!

Custom Blocks

The real power of blocks is being able to rapidly create the perfect block for any situation. This is especially powerful when you’re combining ACF fields and custom post types with ACF blocks. ACF Engine enables you to register your ACF blocks through the UX, yet still have the power to render your own custom HTML and data placeholders. Dynamic blocks without having to dive into React. That’s ACF Engine custom blocks, capable of powering your entire front-end.

Options Pages

ACF has been used for over a decade to power custom settings pages. Known as options pages these WP Admin pages usually need to be registered using code. With ACF Engine you can make a new options page in 30-seconds or less, associate your ACF Field Group and just like that, you’ve built a fully-functional settings page to power your site or app.

Template System

ACF Engine has a template system that allows you to setup single page templates, archive page template and to override default field rendering templates for your ACF Fields.

ACF Front-end Forms

In those cases where you want users to be able to create or edit posts, or where you want to use your ACF Field groups to power a front-end data collection form, we’ve got you covered. ACF Engine leverages the existing front-end form capacity within ACF and makes it more accessible with a UX. Quickly setup your ACF forms, manage your custom fields and all the form settings. Your forms can then be rendered using the Form Block which is available as an ACF Engine Core Block.
