Works right out of the box

Just works – straight out of the box. Install & Activate – if you just want basic functionality, then that’s all you need to do. Perfect for handing your site off to clients if you use ACF / Yoast – without them saying ‘but I’ve written loads, why does it say I don’t have 300 words on the page … ‘! Perfect. Thanks all.

Works Great

add_filter('ysacf_exclude_fields', function(){
    return array(
