Hi all great theme developers:

Is there anyone who is using this plugin in their theme or plugin development for WordPress? http://www.advancedcustomfields.com


Its usage allows it but:

1. I like to know from the perspective that is it a good option to use or are there alternatives?

2. And will the themes using this plugin, will be be accepted on TF?

Thanks much :)

Thanks Iman for quick suggestions. Is it not the same OptionTree that is here? http://wp.envato.com/open-source-plugins/option-tree/

Thanks.

It’s the same. +1 for OT instead of ACF. The later offers premium stuff such as sliders only with payed addons.

Thanks Ruben :) so OT is more robust. What about SMOF? https://github.com/syamilmj/Options-Framework

SMOF development has been discontinued. You should not use it anymore as it probably does not work with latest WP versions.

It would also be worth looking into the Theme Cusotmization API. https://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Customization_API

I’m using this for my next theme and I wish I started using it sooner.
