Async Settings

Asynchronous Layouts

By default, ACF will load all layouts and all their sub fields in a hidden container. This container is later used by the system when a user add layout. This logic can burden the initial page load, especially when using a complex Flexible Content with dozens of layouts and sub fields.

To enhance the admin page load, the Asynchrinous Layout will strip that logic and load the layout on the fly, when a user actually add a new layout.

Disable Title Ajax

By default, ACF will run an Ajax request on page load and everytime a user collapse a layout, in order to retrieve all layouts title when using the acf/fields/flexible_content/layout_title. This setting will remove those requests to lighten the server load.
