Custom Fields Forever

You already know that we don’t recommend creating a WordPress website with the help of page builders or child themes. They have limited possibilities, are often stuffed with unnecessary code slowing down your page, and they can possibly provide you with insufficient security. And you know what they don’t have? Custom fields.

You already know that we don’t recommend creating a WordPress website with the help of page builders or child themes. They have limited possibilities, are often stuffed with unnecessary code slowing down your page, and they can possibly provide you with insufficient security.

And you know what they don’t have? Custom fields.

What is the custom field?

Custom fields are fields for keeping additional information regarding a given post or page. If you have a product reviewing website, it could be a star rating next to each of them. If you’re a blogger, you could, for example, add a field for mood or the title of the song you were listening to while writing. The possibilities are vast: dates, colours, galleries, checkboxes… You name it.

From the more technical side, custom fields are text fields, in which you can keep any amount of information regarding a given blog post, site or element. It’s metadata, data that you can place in the backend – the code that’s responsible for the functionality of a website or an application. You can also put them in the front end so that the changes are visible to the user, but then you have to edit the files of our WordPress website’s theme. Fortunately, you don’t have to get into this specialised knowledge – you either have an expert for that or even a whole agency that knows everything about custom fields. So that you don’t have to. And so that you can focus on more important things, like business or managing your marketing agency, digital agency or company.

Advanced Custom Fields

Were you to ask a WordPress developer whether using custom fields is convenient to use, they would most probably answer that not really. That’s precisely why Advanced Custom Fields (ACF), a WordPress plugin for easier and faster work with custom fields, was created. Don’t confuse this plug with less professional ones or with tools like page builders. ACF is a tool designed for developers, mixing ready-made solutions (created by ACF and its users) with an input of original code to provide custom themes or apps fitted to a client’s needs faster and easier.

Custom fields and custom solutions

Implementing custom fields with the help of ACF is the methodology of our agency, CODETOWP.com. It’s thanks to them that we can create custom solutions for your needs and perfectly recreate your graphic design. This wouldn’t be possible with visual composers or child themes.

By combining it with the experience and knowledge of our specialists of HTML, CSS, PHP and other technologies, we can realise such projects, like a reservation system built from scratch, nonstandard templates for marketing agencies, a salary comparison platform with AI module along with an app, an elaborate corporate website, or an e-commerce shop based on WordPress and WooCommerce templates.

The Beatles, creators of “Strawberry Fields Forever”, are a class of their own and we don’t dare to compare ourselves to them. Duh, you’ll find genuine fans among us. We know and respect that Lennon and co. were masters of their trade and could make such unique music with their instruments. We can create unique custom solutions fitted to your needs by using our knowledge, experience and such tools like ACF. Custom Fields Forever. See for yourself.
