ACF Frontend Form Element
An ACF and Elementor extension that allows you to easily display ACF frontend forms for your users in the Elementor Editor so your users can edit content by themselves from the frontend.
This plugin needs to have both Elementor and Advanced Custom Fields installed and activated. You can create awesome forms in ACF which save custom meta data to pages, posts, users, and more. Then use this widget in Elementor to easily display the form for your users. This way you can pick and choose the data which you need them to be able to edit.
Make sure both Elementor and ACF are installed and activated. This plugin will not do anything without both of them.
Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
Create an ACF field group. It can be either active or not, it doesn’t matter.
Jump into the Elementor editor and search for “ACF frontend form”
Choose the desired ACF field group or leave as is for the current post’s default field group. You may also choose specific fields.
Configure the permisions, display, and form actions as you please.
Now you should an acf form on the frontend for editing a post, adding a post, or editing a user.
Can I send emails through this post?
For the time being, you can use a ACF “action hook” to send emails when this post is registered. See here for reference. In one of our next updates, our intention is to add this feature so that you can do this without any code.
