Hi, I have a question if you can spare a few moments: a couple of years ago I created a page builder using flexible and repeater fields – while I kept things very simple (around 5-6 layouts with a couple of fields each), I had no issues. Alas, once I started adding complexity (doubled the layouts, each with 15-20ish fields) saving a post started taking 10-20 seconds (or even more), while the overall browser performance rendered the interface barely usable (very low framerate/browser begging me to kill it).
Given this issue, I went for a different approach:
Now, what I wanted to ask you is: while I’m pretty sure ACF performance has improved since 2 years ago, I can’t help but wonder – do you think there’s a chance you may end up hitting a wall where too many layouts & fields may hinder/ruin the users experience (specifically on mobile devices or old computers)? Do you have a different approach in mind?
