  • Hi @dkjensen

    This issue is a current limitation of the WP media library popup.

    It is only possible to limit the media library to ‘uploaded to a specific post’ or ‘not connected with a post’.

    When you are editing a user, the images available are the ones which are not connected with posts.

    It is possible for you to tell ACF to use the basic uploader (no media library popup) with this code:

    acf_update_setting(‘uploader’, ‘basic’);
    Perhaps you could hook into the admin_head and check if that page is an edit user page? Then run this code?
