  • I have the same question, and can’t find an answer anywhere here or on Google (searching leads to this post).

    I know that Group is the newer field type. Is there a performance gain in using Group?

    Say I help Jerry Seinfeld with a website, and I’ve created a field group entitled “Comedians in Cars – Shows”. In addition to the fields Guest, Place, and Date, I have a field Car and want sub-fields of Make, Model, Year, Photo, and Description.

    • Guest
    • Place
    • Date
    • Car
      • Make
      • Model
      • Year
      • Photo
      • Description

    Is there a benefit to using Group rather than Flexible Content for the Car field?

    I’m obviously missing something. Thanks!
