I am trying to create a custom post type with mandatory custom fields. I've followed the Adding Custom Fields to a Custom Post Type, the Right Way tutorial, and installed the Advanced Custom Fields plugin on my Hebrew Wordpress 3.5:

enter image description here

The new custom post type ("Books") appears on the side bar, as expected. But there is no Advanced Custom Fields item on the sidebar, although the plugin is installed and activated.

I've tried installing using the web interface and opening the zip file directly, with no results.

How do I get the Advanced Custom Fields to appear on my sidebar menu?


"Advanced custom field plugin not showing in admin sidebar" gave me a useful clue.

Finally, I've moved int the plugin directory, and cloned the git repo directly:

git clone git://github.com/elliotcondon/acf4.git advanced-custom-fields
