Usage & Features

Livepreview Mode

LivePreview allows you to view the changes in a new window after each custom field value is modified.

You can set this option globally from the ACF Copilot Settings options page or individually for each post or page.

Code Snippets

On the page or post where you have set your Custom Field group to be shown, you will see a Clipboard icon that will show the generated code snippets for each custom field type.

You can copy/paste those snippets and build your theme components quickly.


The Custom Fields group pages have a related help section to each field type with built-in usage and examples section.

You can view this section by clicking on the Support icon next to each field type.

Custom Fields Templates

Each supported Custom Field type have a Template with Code Editor where you can directly create a partial template for each custom field.

The replacement variables for fields follow the template  {{acfc_[field_name]}}
