Upgrading our site from ACF Pro v5.7.10 to v.5.7.12 broke our dev site. During the upgrade, there were a few messages errors about “Call to undefined function acf_local()” and WSOD. I tried replacing v5.7.12 with v5.7.9, and that resolved the WSOD, but none of my ACF-based content would render, on the backend or the frontend. At that point I restored from a backup.
The call to acf_local was in our theme. Is this function going away? If so, what should calls to it be replaced with?
