Advanced Custom Fields: Link

Description

Integrates WordPress’ default link picker into Advanced Custom Fields

As of ACF Pro 5.6.0, this field is built-in, so this plugin should not be used.

Allows you to select an existing piece of content or enter a custom URL, set the link title, and choose whether or not the link should open in a new window/tab.

Only works with ACF version 5 and above.
Requires PHP 5.4 or above.

After saving, you can access your data as an array:

array(
    [url]    => http://site.com/page/
    [title]  => Page!
    [target] => 0
)

A little bug

When you modify the link to select another page, the Title is not updated.

Real timesaver!

It had never even crossed my mind to integrate with the built-in link picker dialog. I had previously had two fields and a checkbox to choose between an external URL (simple URL field) and a “page link” field… This is, of course, much simpler – thank you! I originally found this plugin because another one which does the same is featured on ACF’s addons page, but since that one hasn’t been updated for a while it feels saver to stick with this brand new one. Works really well, good job! 🙂
