ACF updates exciting

It seems like ACF will go the Metabox route and include a CPT maker as well. CPT-UI will soon not be needed!

I understand this is an ACF thing not a Cwicly thing, per se, but nontheless because it is bundled in, I can reduce plugin hell. Happiness :slight_smile:

Couldn’t trust my eyes when I recently read it.
Who could expect that?
In case it’s fully able to replace CPTUI, then it’s good news.

Yes, we can get rid of another plugin.
But I’m also a big fan of native functionality, so that’s a big plus for me as well.
In my opinion, it’s core functionality, which should’ve been a part for a very long time already.

There are plans to decouple ACF from Cwicly, so there would be an additional plugin, which previously was not required to install and manage, I guess.

To be fair, I had not the best feeling when ACF was acquired recently (again).
But I really like what I’ve seen in the past months, didn’t expect that kind of progress of such a mature tool, especially under the given circumstances.

What I’m missing though, is the FSE compatibility.
Are there any info or news about it?
It’s something which is really needed.

I have never bothered with CPTUI. It’s easy to create a cpt through your child theme or custom plugin. There are even generators available for such and you just need to paste the snippet.

CPT by ACF, then, do they offer it to free version users?

@jornes - I think I saw it was to be a pro feature.
