I thought that was the case. Was hoping I could have the custom fields and data appear in the backend of both locations but as you both stated, either use the options page or designate 1 of the 2 locations for the custom fields interface to exist in the backend and code the acf with the post ID.
Can either of you answer this question. Can content that has already been entered in the custom fields be moved? By this I mean, I set up a custom field for the home page and entered all the information. Now the client has decided they want to move it off the homepage to an alternate page. When I reassign the location the custom fields show up on that location but none of the data. Is it possible to move the data with the custom fields in the backend or will I need to reenter all of the information.
