I’ve been using the Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) plugin for a few years now and I can’t imagine building a website without it. It allows you to take full control of the WordPress admin so that it’s much more intuitive to manage your site’s content. Instead of one big editor, as if you’re writing a long blog post, ACF adds smaller form fields (text, textarea, radio buttons, checkboxes, etc.) that more closely match smaller sections of content. My clients have really enjoyed the simplicity of maintaining their own site as well. Plus, when it’s been a few months, or longer, since I last updated a website, it’s nice to be able to immediately understand how to edit the content. There’s a “pro” version of the plugin with additional features, including repeatable fields, media galleries, and more.
