If you have a CF called “Hero CF” with a field “main_title”,
and a CF called “Intro CF” with a field “main_title”,
and then apply those both to a page/post, it can’t distinguish the fields.
(I believe updating the second field in the admin, will modify the first as well…since the field for both is still “main_title”)
In which case I think it’s probably better to give each CF a containing group (hero, intro) so you end up with fields eg “hero_main_title” and “intro_main_title” (but can still be accessed by “main_title” in code for that Group)
Anyone have better suggestion?
