    Please make the options screen that allows for the insertion of the license to only show the string on the first entry of the string. the ability to show the full text of the license now means that admins on my client site can see and take my license string. I’d like to disallow them that ability.

    Essentially you can take your queues from acf itself.

    Sorry for the late reply Aaron!

    I’ll look into adding this in the next release. I’ll be honest with you and say it’s not on my top priority list, but I’ll definitely look at some other implementations and make a decision.

    If you’re interested in contributing, you can make a pull request with your changes on GitHub 🙂

    Hey Aaron, I took some time and looked through the code and gave it some thought and decided to implement this into ACFW.

    One thing that I will point out is that unlike Advanced Custom Fields, ACFW will not replace the value of the text box with a bunch of * characters. The text box is just changed to type="password". This is mostly due to my ignorance in writing migration scripts, but once I figure it out, this may change as well. Probably not an issue since users who know how to “un-hide” that can probably just access the DB and see the key directly anyway!

    Thanks again for the request and be sure to keep an eye out for the next release in the coming week(s).
