I want to add an ACF field in my post title, only on admin table (not in the title field stored in database), and only for a specific Custom Post Type. Some of my posts have the same name, so it will be more useful to have this information. In final, my title will look like that :

$new_title = get_the_title($post->ID).' - '.get_field('place', $post->ID);

I have found other solutions on other topics, but all the post types are affected. Thank you.

Use this to filter the title:

function wpse264139_edit_post_change_title_in_list() {

`function wpse264139_construct_new_title( $title, $id ) {
    if(get_post_type($id) == 'post_type') {
       $field = get_field('place', $id);
       return $field . " " . $title;
    else {
       return $title;

NOTE: most of the code came from: Replacing the title in admin list table

  • Yes but how to hook for replacing the title in admin table List (for this post type only)? Commented Apr 19, 2017 at 15:09
  • Edited answer with get_post_type()
