Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) Slow update for large number of ACF Fields Reply To: Slow update for large number of ACF Fields

  • @hube2 I was thinking the same thing about using pure WP DB stuff to do the update for any Advanced Custom Fields. But of course I’d love it just to do this out the box 😉

    However, like I said, I can update the fields programatically very successfully! So I’m not quite sure why the wp-admin doesn’t do the same thing and avoid the slow update_metadata function. By maybe there is something more complex that I’m not really understanding!

    I agree that ACF is absolutely brilliant and powerful. I’ve build really complex UIs using it. This is the first true limitation I’ve encountered.
