In case you missed it yesterday, my article, Advanced Sites Deserve Advanced Custom Fields, has been published in the December issue of php[architect]. This marks my first feature-length magazine article!
Building WordPress meta boxes has gotten easier over time, but it can still be a daunting task for a new theme or plugin developer. Fortunately, Elliot Condon’s powerful (and free!) Advanced Custom Fields plugin makes creating complex meta boxes, repeaters, and more a cinch. We’ll take a look at the plugin, walk through some practical examples of building carousels, alternate page headlines, and more, and then discuss the future of the plugin with the upcoming ACF 5 release.
Through the luck of the draw, my article was also the one selected to be available for free in the issue’s preview, so you can read it even if you don’t have a subscription (though I’d recommend subscribing – php[architect] is a great monthly publication).
