Who says that they don’t need it to do their job?
Here’s a very basic use case: a Markdown field. After saving the field, the converted value is saved to the database in a separate field (using
acf_update_metadata($post_id, $name, $value, $hidden)). That’s done so we’re not saving the original value as an array, allowing easy querying via
WP_Query or the like.
When rendering the input field next time, we show a preview of the converted markdown field, but we need the
$post_id to get the correct field from the database (
acf_get_metadata($post_id, $name, $hidden)).
I will open a support ticket, thank you.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
