I've created an open community for ACF users to share ideas, field groups, and code snippets... I hope you'll join and share some code. This could be a really great (free) resource for all of us.

My short announcement post is here:

Create responsive background image while maintaining their aspect ratio. Fun tut with a flexbox option :)
Here’s the scenario. You want to use an image as the background of a container, and you want to maintain that images’ aspect ratio. For an extra bonus, you want to have some text (HTML) on top of the image. There are a few ways you may go about doing this, but all that I’ve …

Ok, scrapped my original idea, and came up with a whole different approach using display:table. The vertical centering of the text is the tricky part... I'm not wild about this way as it needs WAY too many DIV (four total) to function, but it fixes TWO major concerns with your approach:

1) I trust absolute positioning of flow text about as far as I could throw the Big Stick. (aka the USS IOWA)

2) Every time the content text changed you'd have to redefine your media query to make sure the text doesn't flow out of the image. The switchover to normal cover from auto-adjusting height "needs" to be automatic and not some arbitrary fixed break-point. (ESPECIALLY not in pixels!)

3) It was built with no graceful degradation plan.

So here it is:
http://www.cutcodedown.com/for_others/mikeHemberger/template.html

As with all my examples the directory:
http://www.cutcodedown.com/for_others/mikeHemberger

...is unlocked for easy access to the gooey bits and pieces. I provided a backlink to your codepen and for now have the text explaining it in the document. If I have time over the weekend I'll likely move that part into my tutorials section of the site.

The biggest shortcomings are the extra markup (boo, hiss), and that for some reason Opera Classic (which some people still use thanks to ChrOpera being a giant middle finger to Opera's loyal fans, though most of us are on Vivaldi now) seems to be halving again the height declaration. I don't consider either of those to be real deal breakers.

This was a interesting one as it's not something I'd even think of putting on a real website, which made it a bit of a challenge as it's out of my normal direction of thought. 

Wonder if anyone can make it work without the extra DIV AND automatically adjusting to the content without scripting. I gave it my best... The float with a negative margin would work, if FF behaved like every other browser. I may present that method later just to show it... I think I already linked to the related bugzilla entry about that.

Simple, front end post editing with Caldera Forms http://t.co/Axkeeq9ECA
It’s not very hidden… I’m a huge fan of “FEATT” (front end all the things). Yes, that’s an acronym I just made up right now, but I might just continue to use it. I love building websites that keep the users on the front end for posting & editing new posts, editing profiles, and more. …

Here's a quick snippet to make radio buttons awesome with toggles! I turned it into a CodePen so i wouldn't lose it... I'm def going to use this one again in the future. http://thestizmedia.com/radio-buttons-as-toggle-buttons-with-css/ 
Form inputs are annoying, let’s face it. There is a ton of data showing the more fields you have in a form, the higher the bounce rate of that form. I decided to play with radio buttons and try make them more like simple toggle buttons. After a bit of playing, I got it working …

You know those times you spend hours trying to solve a problem, then finally swallow your pride and ask for help, only to figure out a solution 10 minutes after asking? Yeah, screw you those times. Well not really. Actually, my recent adventure was a great learning experience for me the other day. Remember that …

Love this plugin for super fast app style navigation on your #WordPress based website. It's not even Genesis only, though that's all i'd use it on ;)
I don't know about you, but I'm on my cell phone a lot, and I don't mean making calls. I confess to having a bit of phone phobia, which I'm sure surprises my best friend, as we were just recalling ...
