ACF Quick Edit Fields


WordPress plugin which adds Quick Edit functionality to Advanced Custom Fields Plugin (Pro and Free 5+.


  • Show ACF field values in List views
    Supported ACF Fields.
  • Supports Post, Term and User list tables
  • Scalar Columns (Like Text, Number, …) can be made sortable
  • Edit ACF Field values in Quick edit and Bulk edit


In the Fieldgroup editor:

Column View:

  • Show Column will sho a column in the WP List Table.

  • Sortable Column will make the column sortable. This only works with primitive Field types like Text, Number, Range and so on.

  • Column weight gives you an option to take control of the column order. The higher the weight, the more to the right the column will be. Present columns will have defaults weights of multiples of 100 starting with zero for the checkbox column. For example to place an image column between the checkbox (column weight = 0) and title (column weight = 100) choose a value between 0 and 100.

  • Filter add a filter to the posts users or terms list.


Toggle QuickEdit and Bulk Edit to enable Editing in the list table view.


Enable Backend Search to make a field searchable in the list table view.

Location Rules

The plugin follows ACFs location rule logic as far as possible. If you have a field group that is only applies to posts in a specific category or with a certain post starus, then columns and quick edit will only show up, if you have filtered the posts by that category ar post status.

Negative rules (like “Post category is not equal to X”) will not work – simply because the WP does not provide an admin view for “Posts not in category X”.

With the Simplifed Location Rules option enabled for a field group only the post type or taxonomy rules are applied. Any other rule ist skipped. This allows you to always show and edit the fields in list views, regardless of the current list filter. The downside is, that this can make even those fields editable, that are normally hidden in the pst editor.

When will you support the Non-ACF Field XYZ?

Presumbly I won’t. However, there are some plugin filters and actions that might come in handy, if you decide to write an implementation by yourself.

I even wrote a tutorial page on how to write our own field type integration.

I’m having trouble.

Please use the issues section in the GitHub-Repository. A well described issue that can be reproduced quickly is more likely to be fixed quickly.

I will most likely not maintain the support forum on Anyway, other users might have an answer for you, so it’s worth a shot.

I’m having trouble with WooCommerce.

Welcome to the world of commerce.

If you are located in the EU, you can hire me for the usual market price of an IT guy in central europe.

Outside the EU you can try to fix it yourself or find someone who does. I will likely accept well crafted and tested pull request in the GitHub-Repository.

I’d like to suggest a feature. Where should I post it?

Please post an issue in the GitHub-Repository

This is a great and fundamental tool to access custom fields in the post editor list. You can also choose which fields appear in the list, which ones only for quick edit and also in the backend search box. Overall, an amazing extension for ACF. Thanks a lot!

The first issue I found was 1) the quick edit fields don’t save correctly – the spinner justs keeps spinning. If you do click out of it, it seems the field was edited but pretty clunky and not quick. The main issue was when I tried bulk editing a field, I got a critical error that broke my site. Does have some nice features but can’t rely on this plugin to be on my site

love this plugin. so simple and so intuitive. works well with acf pro. you do not need more than this. great! thank you so much for maintaining.

Thanks for your plugin! I was working directly with mysql and acf fields. And when you don’t saving products individually you can’t see ACF fields. After bulk save its helped me a lot! Thanks.

This plugin introduces a few high value features that replace several other go-to plugins, these are features that almost seem like they should come standard with Wordpress or ACF. The plugin is lightweight, does what it says and stays out of the way (it doesn’t do the following: annoy you with constant notifications or advertisements, beg you to go pro, or add brightly colored text to the admin menus). Huge thanks to Jörn Lund for crafting this!
