Reviews

The basic version of the plugin is phenomenal on it’s own and I am sure the pro is more than worth it, though I have not tried it. The extra field types and tools add a great deal to ACF in a seamless way. I do really wish they made it more clear what is included in PRO and not-PRO. Having badges showing half pro and half free really just adds to the confusion.
मार्च 27, 2023
Many plugins I’ve bought often fail to live-up to expectations (each release invariably breaks something). ACF though is just excellent, and ACFE matches that and extends it in so many useful and valuable ways. I’m sure most developers would rather cut code than support their plugins, however, Konrad takes time to reply quickly and in some detail. You get the feeling this plugin is extremely well written (like ACF itself), clearly very well documented and properly supported. I think a rating of 5 stars are fully justified.
मार्च 7, 2023
good day.I am using the Image Selector field but as I see it on the frontend, I am using elementor I use an acf type image but the only thing I see is the url of the image I can’t get the image to be seen by any chance do you have any guide on how to work that part I have the return value as image It should be noted that I am using it inside a repeater which in turn is within a flexible content if I use it outside these elements it works correctly greetings
