Admin Columns Pro ACF AddOn Features
Admin Columns Pro is 100% compatible with the Advanced Custom Fields plugin with the use of our add-on. Admin Columns Pro allows you to customize the WordPress list table for any post type by adding columns. By adding ACF fields to the list table you will display relevant information, make it filterable, sortable, easy editable (inline & bulk) and you can export content for further use. It’s a lot to take in so we will discuss each feature in more detail.
Display ACF fields on the list table
As an example, we will use a Real Estate website which has a post type called “House”. Using Advanced Custom Fields we have added 6 custom fields to that post type:
number of rooms,
Customize the list table
You have total control on the columns you get to see on the list table. You can pick any Advanced Custom Field an add it as a column to your WordPress list table with our drag-and-drop interface. There is no coding required.
All field types from Advanced Custom Fields can be used on the WordPress list table as a column:
Date Time Picker,
True / False,
Wysiwyg Editor. You can also add columns for any post property or custom taxonomy term.
Find & Filter ACF data
All the content you see on the list table will become easily searchable with the use of our smart filters. The filters are stackable and you can add as many as you like. The smart filters work with any ACF field and fully support custom field data.
Filter by number
You can filter on numeric values, which allows you to search for ranges within a custom field or ACF field.
For example, the “number of rooms” is an ACF “number” field. We can now simply add the filter “Number of Rooms” and select “between” and enter 4 to 7. This will list all houses with rooms between 4 and 7.
Filter by text
This is the most powerful way of searching text-based content like titles, names and general text strings within custom fields. You can either search for a part of a text using “contains” or use “is” for a direct match. Great when you want to find houses that contain the word “pool”.
Filter by relationship
The ACF relationship field type can contain other posts or users. With our smart filters, you can actually filter your list table on these linked items. With our “Houses” example we can now list all houses that are similar to a related house.
Filter by any type
Many ACF field types can be filtered by Admin Columns Pro. Here is a list of every ACF field type that can use smart filtering.
Save filtered sets
Admin Columns Pro allows you to save your filters on the list table as a segment for later use. When you come back to the list table you can reload your saved filter set by using the dropdown menu.
