Plugin / Admin Columns for ACF Fields

Florian Eickhorst



Use this plugin to show ACF fields in the “All Posts” table view in the WordPress admin backend.

Simply enable the new option “Admin Column” in your ACF field settings for any regular field (see exceptions below). Now there will be an extra column for your field shown in any overview of posts, pages, taxonomies or your custom post types or taxonomies (e.g. “All Pages”).

You can use filters (see below) to control the plugin’s behaviour even more precisely.

Works on any regular ACF field (see exceptions below).

Compatible with Advanced Custom Fields 5.x



  1. Install ACF and this plugin (see below)
  2. In ACF open/create your “field group” within ACF and note the post type that this field group applies to (at the bottom).
  3. Open any field for editing (see exceptions below).
  4. Enable the “Admin Column” option in the field settings.
  5. Enable post types and/or taxonomies for which the column should be shown.
  6. Save the field group and go to the overview page of the post type or taxonomy (e.g. “Posts > All Posts”, or “Pages > All Pages”) that you noted above and notice the newly added column for your field.
