Somehow I’m a little surprised (maybe because I’m kind of a noob and don’t understand the system behing custom fields) that there is no built-in or relatively easy solution to display custom fields values in the backend.

In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
