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.
