CPT UI + ACF Custom fields versus Elementor Post template + ACF Custom fields



New Member

I need to create various post types having custom fields and I understand that I have 2 ways of doing this :

1. Create the needed custom fields with ACF and create custom types with CPT UI.
2. Just create a post template in Elementor and add ACF custom fields to it.

The obvious difference is that with solution #2, the custom posts won't appear directly in the Dashboard. I'll have t go through the Elementor Library. Being an absolute beginner with WP and Elementor (although I'm a former application developer and system engineer),I'm wondering whether there are other benefits/drawbacks that I could overlook in both solutions.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
