PROActive Options Pages

The pro version allows developers to manually activate Options Pages individually using the “Active” switch in the sidebar.

Export/Import Block Types

It is possible to export and import Options Pages in a Json file using the ACF > Tools menu. Options Pages can also be exported in PHP format, to manually register them in the functions.php file. Those tools are also available directly within the Dynamic Options Pages UI.

Settings in PHP

The Dynamic Options Pages UI use the acf_add_options_page() function behind the scene. It is possible to change the settings in PHP using the acf/get_options_page hook. Usage example:

add_filter('acf/get_options_page', 'my_acf_get_options_page', 10, 2);
function my_acf_get_options_page($page, $slug){
    if($slug !== 'my-options')
        return $page;
    $page['page_title'] = 'My Options';
    return $page;

Hide the module

ACF Extended use the native ACF setting show_admin to determine if the module menu should be displayed or not. You can read more about that setting on the ACF article How to hide ACF menu from clients. Usage example:

add_filter('acf/settings/show_admin', '__return_false');

Disable the module

The Options Pages module is enabled by default. It can be enabled and disabled in the Settings UIPRO, or with the following code:

// Using acf/init
add_action('acf/init', 'my_acfe_modules');
function my_acfe_modules(){

    // Disable Options Pages
    acf_update_setting('acfe/modules/options_pages', false);

// Or using acfe/init
add_action('acfe/init', 'my_acfe_modules');
