ACPT 2.0 has been an almost complete rewrite, with a huge amount of new code being written. Let’s dive right in:

  • New UI: ACPT v2 comes with a completely new UI and UX.
  • Meta Field Groups: There is no need to copy your fields over and over again. The meta field groups can now be freely assigned to CTPs, taxonomies, users or option pages.
  • New Meta Fields Builder: Version 2 introduces a smarter and faster meta field builder. Bulk actions have been introduced to speed up your work.
  • New Form Builder: ACPT v2 comes with a built-in, ready-to-use form builder for your websites.
  • New Gutenberg Blocks: Basic Field, Relational Field & Repeater Field blocks are now available. You can finally render any ACPT field in the standard WordPress editor with just a few clicks.
  • Nested Repeaters & Flexible Fields: No more restrictions on nestable fields.

Finally, ACPT 2.0 has introduced 7 new meta field types, bringing the total number of available types to 40, and a redesigned and refactored relational field to be more robust, flexible and easy to use.
