Field Group Title

Display a different field group title to the one that is used for administration. This feature allow developers to keep an internal field group title & a different one for the admin user.

Set Settings in PHP

It is possible to set this setting in PHP using the acf/load_field_group hook. Note that this hook is used everywhere, including in ACF admin and tools screen. Which means the setting will be used when exporting the field group.

To avoid that behavior, you can use the acfe_is_admin_screen() function as condition. Usage example:

add_filter('acf/load_field_group', 'my_acf_field_group');
function my_acf_field_group($field_group){
    // Bail early if in ACF admin/tool screen
        return $field_group;
    // Target a specific key
    if($field_group['key'] !== 'group_5f20935b9a777')
        return $field_group;
    // Settings
    $field_group['acfe_display_title'] = 'My Title';
    // Return
    return $field_group;

Retrieve Settings

Alternative title setting is saved in the Field Group array, under acfe_display_title key. It can be retrieved using acf_get_field_group(). Usage example:

$field_group = acf_get_field_group('group_5f20935b9a777');
