Plugin / Advanced Custom Fields: Button Field

Matt Cromwell



NOTE: This is an extension for the popular Advanced Custom Fields plugin. By itself, this plugin does NOTHING. ENDNOTE

Generates a nice button/link to an external url or an internal post type, similar to the page_link field but allows you to override the link text.

What makes this great is reducing two ACF rows into just one (see screenshots for a clear visual walkthrough). The internal link also uses a dropdown which is populated from all your post types so the button can link to a media file or a Custom Post Type, or of course to a page or post.

NOTE: (I know it was already mentioned, but just to be sure there’s no confusion…) This is an extension for the popular Advanced Custom Fields plugin. By itself, this plugin does NOTHING. ENDNOTE

Future Plans

Not much really. Probably just a couple things as the need arises:

  • Add a filter for media types since the dropdown can get kinda totally out of control.
  • Add a target field as well. This would allow for _blank and even “foobox” to be targeted.
  • Add a checkbox to enable “rel=nofollow”.
