  • Hi @kuraga

    Thanks for the email,
    Elliot here – ACF dev​​​.

    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.

    The “tiny_mce_before_init” filter is used to cusotmize the tinymce settings. These will affect how the editor saves the value into the DB. In theory, ACF should inherit these settings, but to be extra sure, please checkout the ACF JS filter:

    Hope this helps.
