I think we are discovering the difference between when we want to use a metabox and when we want to use a block. One of the values of having something stored in
postmeta is being able to retrieve it from elsewhere. I’d been hoping for something similar to the way we retrieve field values from options pages, but that doesn’t seem to work. It’s making me re-evaluate my original ideas about converting field groups to blocks. Though I bet it wouldn’t be that hard to create a block that inserted the output from a field group, even though we might not be able to do that with ACF. (Too recursive?)
