    as per acf docs and this thread:

    acf_form_head() MUST be placed before get_header() or more precise before the wp_head() function.
    otherwise any conditional logic won’t work.

    please update your docs accordingly.

    This generates an issues though. The function acf_form_head() should only be used on pages that have acf-fields.

    A solution could be to use a template for the dashboard and to place the following in the header (before the wp_head() function):

    if ( is_page_template( ‘template-dashboard.php’ ) ) {

    however, how can we distinguish the settings page? in the pro version the setting page would have the same template as the dashboard because the page is generated using the shortcode [wcv_pro_dashboard].

    Ben Lumley wrote that code, so let’s ask him: @benlumley

    ACF support is not “official” by us, we just added that to the KnowledgeBase because Ben Lumley wrote it and it worked well for him, so we posted it for everyone to use as well.

    Ben A. – (not Ben Lumley ;))


    thx, just adding this for others not to scratch their heads 😀

    advanced custom fields is very widely used
