  • You can’t create a function named get_field() that overrides the ACF function. That’s a PHP thing and not really related to ACF. There aren’t any filters in ACF before the value is called from the database.

    However, there is a hook in WP that is run before the data is retrieved from the database There isn’t much in the way of documentation. You should look at the WP functions that are referenced under “Used by” on in the documentation. You should be aware that this will bypass the WP cache, which means that every time you get a value from a field all the work will need to be done every time unless you do your own caching of values.
