Yes, my users need to see the data in the field and I need them to NOT change it in any way.
However, I don’t allow users to access the back end of the site, so I was able to create a form on the front end for adding/editing data and add the additional “read-only” fields in that front end form.
The addition of a READ ONLY option for every field type is still a critical need, in my opinion. I’ve been playing with other plugins like ACF and it appears to be the only one that doesn’t support a READ ONLY option.
