In this tutorial, we walk through how to display the records and fields in Advanced Custom Fields with a fun implementation of ACF: a favorite cats database on Sally’s Cat Blog. Some of her cats are available for adoption, so there are some dynamic links and buttons that are conditionally shown. We show you exactly how all of this is brought to life with Kadence Elements Templates.

Unlike other platforms where you’re building your website on someone else’s property, WordPress, Kadence and Kadence Blocks are fully open source. That means whatever you build, you own.
All of the images used in Kadence Starter Templates are royalty free. You can use them in your WordPress site, or replace them easily with your own imagery.
Kadence does offer a few PRO-only starter templates, but most of our WordPress starter templates are free to use. Some of them do require other plugins. You’ll see that noted when you check them out on our site and in the Kadence Starter Template Plugin.
