BEA – Beautiful Flexible


Transform ACF’s flexible layouts list into a nice and UX popup.

How ?

By default there is a «default» image for layouts. But the idea is to customize them by adding your own.

Image convention

  • The size of image should be 366 x 150 or bigger 732 x 300.
  • They should be named based on the flexible key (push_2_light) with no underscores but dashes (push-2-light.[extension]).
  • The following extensions will be resolved in that order: .jpg, .jpeg, .png and .gif.

Where images should be situated

They should more likely be situated into your theme wp-content\themes\my-theme\assets\bea-beautiful-flexible\. But if you have a child-theme and added images into it, these will overwrite those from parent-theme.
The following directories will be solved according to order: plugin’s folder, child theme’s folder, theme’s folder.

Also note that you can filter this path to gather all your images into a same folder :

add_filter( 'bea.beautiful_flexible.images_path', $path );

Finally, you could filter all images like this :

add_filter( 'bea.beautiful_flexible.images', $images );<h3>Who ?</h3>


Special thanks to HWK, from his blogpost, we created a WordPress plugin with custom tuning (js+css).


Created by Be API, the French WordPress leader agency since 2009. Based in Paris, we are more than 30 people and always hiring some fun and talented guys. So we will be pleased to work with you.

This plugin is only maintained, which means we do not guarantee some free support. Consider reporting an issue and be patient.

To facilitate the process of submitting an issue and quicker answer, we only use Github, so don’t use WP.Org support, it will not be considered.

A simple idea but one that drastically improves the user interface for ACF's flexible blocks.

This plugin would be perfect if there was just an easier way to add images to each flexible content layout. Maybe just an add-on UI for doing that would be the only thing I could ask for. Other than that, it works exactly as specified and really helps for organization efforts on the backend. 4 stars until image upload is easier. Once it is, I'd be very happy to give it 5 stars!
