For this case, you need to create a function that will convert certain patterns to certain HTML tags. You can use the preg_replace() function to do it. For example, if you want to convert the words between stars (*) into italic, you can use this code:
$text = get_field('text'); $pattern = '/(.*)\*(.*)\*(.*)/'; $replacement = '$1<i>$2</i>$3'; echo preg_replace($pattern, $replacement, $text);
That way you can input the text like this:
this is normal *this is italic* this is normal
I hope this helps 🙂

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
