Build Custom Themes
WordPress is the world’s most popular Content Management System, and was historically seen as a blogging platform with a core functionality based around posts and basic pages. Today it has evolved into an advanced templating system which offers the developer full control over content and presentation.
Advanced Custom Fields
Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) is a WordPress plugin which gives you full control over the content and presentation on your website with an array of highly customisable templating features. The simple and intuitive API retrieves and loops through data in the same way that you would do with standard WordPress loops and template tags.
ACF allows you to build more complex data structures such as flexible content, repeater fields, and ACF blocks, rather than having to rely on page builders & shortcodes to structure your content. You can use repeater fields to create carousels and galleries, or use ACF blocks to build a 100% modular CMS architecture without the need for a rigid hierarchy of templates.
