How to Display ACF Custom Fields Using Stackable Blocks
Dynamic Content is a Stackable Premium feature
You can use ACF custom fields as Dynamic Sources with Stackable's Dynamic Content feature. This integration will allow you to display your ACF custom field content inside Stackable blocks and native blocks without having to use shortcodes.
Creating A Custom Field
First you will need to install and activate ACF into your WordPress site. After doing so, you will find it in your Dashboard labelled Custom Fields
After you click on Custom Fields, select Add New, and then fill up the fields accordingly. When you finish, click Publish.
Note that you can edit the field attributes to choose where you can use the advanced custom fields you created. You can choose from Post, Page, or Custom Post Type if you created one.
For this example, we created a Team Members custom field which will show in Posts.
Displaying ACF Custom Fields Using Stackable Blocks
Navigate to Posts in your Dashboard, and select Add New. Once you create a new post, you will find the custom fields at the bottom of your screen.
Fill it up with the necessary information and then add a title to your post. Once finished, click Publish.
After publishing your post, navigate to Pages in your Dashboard, and select Add New. Once you create a new post, add any block you want to use and display the custom field content you created. In this example, we used the Stackable Team Member block.
- Highlight the text you want the custom field to be displayed
- Click on the Dynamic Content icon
- Select the Dynamic Source (in this case, Other Posts)
- Select the Posts / Pages (then search for your post)
- Select the Field (scroll down to see a section for ACF)
Repeat the steps for the other content.
