I’ve drawn up a little diagram to further explain what I’m doing here.
Here’s a point-by-point explanation:
All of this is working as long as the block that we’re trying to pull from Page 2 doesn’t include another have_rows() call. I’ve explored the plugin code a bit, and it looks like there’s a case where it breaks in api/api-template.php around line 489.
I’m going to do some more testing, but the main problem is that it’s resetting the have_rows() loop for Page 1, causing the entire page to be re-generated, which includes the item from Page 2 again, causing the infinite loop.
I’m aware of the potential for including another “block_reference” from another page, and have added some code to avoid this.
Thanks again for your help,

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. 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
