  • ACF stores dates as ‘YYYMMDD’ Sorting on this field as either a number or as text should work.

    Even though, as I posted in the original post, I set it as:

    Save Format: dd/mm/yy

    Does it ignore this setting?

    Yes, it does sort by title fine – but I need it to do release date – as I said it is sorting, I know this, but it is not sorting CORRECTLY – it is sorting it alphanumerically instead of chronologically.

    I am at a point where i think i will change the data to Save Format YYYYMMDD so that it will sort alphanumerically and win/win but I wanted to figure out if it is a bug or not.
