How to Use Elementor with Advanced Custom Fields in WordPress

Elementor and Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) are two of the most popular and powerful plugins in WordPress:

  • Elementor is the leading page builder in WordPress, with over 1 million users.
  • Advanced Custom Fields turns WordPress into Drupal, with custom fields and content types. It also has over 1 million users!

This week, we have a video showing you how to use these two plugins together to create superb sites. Rod shows you how to create an IMDB-style movie review website using Elementor and ACF together.

Watch this 13 minute video and you’ll be amazed at what you can do with WordPress. 

Notice what’s not in the video. There is no code. Without touching a line of code, Elementor and ACF enable you to drag-and-drop your way to a powerful content and layout system. If you need more help, there’s also text documentation on using Elementor and ACF together.

Great tutorial, however you should mention in the title or description that it works only with Elementor Pro. Any idea how to do this with Divi (cause it has dynamic fields)?

Nick, it works really well with Divi’s dynamic fields. You can grab any ACF field via the dynamic content button and run it into the site. Couple this with the Divi theme builder (new in 4.0) and this really opens Divi up to do cool things.

Lovely tutorial. So easy to understand. 

Please how can I create a full movie site with seasons and episodes linked together? I mean movie 1 category with a sub-category called season one and season one with episode1 as a sub-category of the season one?

It is possible to achieve this with Custome post type, elementor and ACF.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
