Well, “glad” to see someone else had the same issue. ACF support tried helping me through email, but it was too late for the particular project I was working on.
I was using the post object as a way for the client to choose a link for a “read more” button on a slider. The post object helps to reduce user error, that is, make it so the client had to select a post that exists on their website.
I ended up having to use a text field (well, URL field) so the client can copy/paste a URL in. Wasn’t ideal, but it works.
