ACF { WordPress WYSIWYG Field

Adds a 'WordPress WYSIWYG' field type for the Advanced Custom Fields WordPress plugin.


Adds a native WordPress WYSIWYG field to the Advanced Custom Fields plugin.

This field uses the native wp_editor function which creates a very native looking WYSWYG field. The only downside to this field is that it does not work within a repeater field when adding a new row. Saving the post and reloading the edit screen will allow the field to render correctly and continue to work as expected.


This add-on will work with:

  • version 5
  • version 4
  • version 3


This add-on can be treated as both a WP plugin and a theme include.

Install as Plugin

  1. Download .zip
  2. Extract .zip and rename folder to 'acf-wp-wysiwyg'
  3. Copy the 'acf-wp-wysiwyg' folder into your plugins folder
  4. Activate the plugin via the Plugins admin page

Include within theme

  1. Download .zip
  2. Extract .zip and rename folder to 'acf-wp-wysiwyg'
  3. Copy the 'acf-wp-wysiwyg' folder into your theme folder (can use sub folders). You can place the folder anywhere inside the 'wp-content' directory
  4. Edit your functions.php file and add the code below (Make sure the path is correct to include the acf-wp-wysiwyg.php file)
