Hello Themler Team, and also Stagger Lee, I currently have lots of projects that i need to use the "advanced custom fields" plugin in wordpress, so the client will have no fuss when editing elements of a page....

advanced custom fields is really great, but it lacks something really important, the ease of use to make the ui dynamic. what i mean, is let's say you built a products page template, and you have about 9 boxes, each box has it's title, and picture, and links inside it. so if i wanted to give the client an easy way to edit only these elements, i would have to know php loops and maybe insert some html with php, but i dont think this will work within themler directly, only in the backend....

ofcourse the user can edit with themler, but not all users will be willing to pay the monthly fee (though i did bring you some customers and i always try to help and bring more), but sometimes the user is not tech savvy and doesn't know how to use this...

So in these cases i usually use the acf plugin.

So, i have a few questions:

  1. can i somehow work with acf together with themler?
  2. any chance themler can make an option for custom fields and such? ( currently, there is no software that gives this functionality, you can be the first).
  3. any recomendations perhaps what to do?

because themler is a new proudct that is always evolving i am constantly looking for a way to achieve this, and if themler would have this kind of functionality (or at least have maybe the ability to add php loops in the html editor), it would be great.....

I hope you can understand what i said here :)

Thanks for your time,

Shaul.

I just asked them to give us option for PHP code inside HTML. Text Themler blocks.
This way you could echo ACF fields wherever you want. And with PHP code inside HTML TH block you could add tabs, accordions shortcodes and put ACF fields inside them.
(Still waiting for shortcodes, not all are finished in Themler. Accordion works only for WooCommerce I believe.)

Will give you a real example what you could do if Themler allows PHP code inside HTML block (soon when they finish tabs and accordions)

  • You open default (or new custom) page/post detailed view template.
  • On the top of post you insert HTML block
  • Inside HTML block you insert PHP codes for all needed tabs.
  • Inside this PHP code tabs you insert code for echo/display your ACF field(s), any ACF fild you need to display.

  • And in your website you have at the top of the post (or under content), beneath say title, tabs (gallery, video(s), Google map, ACF group of fields for pricing table,

It is not difficult to make manually in files, but problem is to live with fear any time you click on Save in Themler. If your code will get lost.

Right now it is not possbile to use ACF via Themler. Not even ACF shortcode inside HTML block, it is not accepted as shortcode. (not WP content/widget text area) But even if it accepted shortcodes inside HTML blocks ACF allows only simple text filed, not usable for anything serious.

Second problem is what if other people say they want Pods, some other plugin for custom fields, integrated, etc. Not so easy.
Wish people from Artisteer forum would register here and vote. if we dont vote they never know what we need.

It is not only WordPress they have in mind. They need to make things for other CMS very different than WordPress.

So, VOTING is important.

Would really like to some implementation of custom fields (I use Toolset), and want to follow this topic.

Topic is a bit to old, and more or less solved.
You can use CMS Control now. Put field code there, call it, and style it with Themler.

Hi! Can you tell me what CMS Control is? When I google it, all I get is a plugin called WP-CMS Post Control. Is this what you're referring to? Is there a tutorial you can point me to that explains this method of adding custom fields?

Hi,

I'm sure that they were referring to the CMS Code control inside Themler that you can find under the Insert tab >> More.

Sincerely,
Hella
