Thanks for the email,

The PHP filters “the_content”, “the_excerpt” and “term_decription” are run during the output of these values in the theme front-end. They are PHP filters, which won’t affect the WYSIWG field.
The WYSIWYG field uses a similar, but unique filter, named “acf_the_content”. Using this filter will allow you to customize the WYSIWYG output in your theme.
Hope this helps.
