Description

Adds a Website Field to Advanced Custom Fields. Select if link should be an external link, if it should show title or the url.

This works with ACF 4 and ACF5 / ACF5Pro.

This is an add-on for the Advanced Custom Fields WordPress plugin and will not provide any functionality to WordPress unless Advanced Custom Fields is installed and activated.

The Website field gives a few basic options:

  • Show / Hide Title (if checked to No, than the website URL will show on the front end and the title field will not be shown in the admin)
  • Open in Current Window - default will make all URLs open a new browser window for external sites. ( if checked to Yes, than the admin section will have a checkbox to specify if the link should open the current window.)
  • Return array instead of Link - default will return a formatted URL with option to return as an array.

Installation

The Website Field plugin needs to be added to your themes. Download the zip file and upload as any Wordpress plugin.

How to Use

<?php the_field('website')?>

will output:

<a href="http://www.example.com" target="_blank">http://www.example.com</a>

or this (if you select title option):

<a href="http://www.example.com" target="_blank">Catalog</a>

or this (if you select current window option):

<a href="http://www.example.com">Example</a>

If you have the field return an array:

get_field('website')
array(3) { 
	["title"]=> "Example" 
	["url"]=> "http://example.com" 
	["external"]=> "1" 
} 

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I've activated the plugin, but nothing happens!
