@sireneweb How would you be sure to list all custom field names used by other plugins ? Prefixing by “acf_” would ensure by 99,99% that there will never be another conflict I think.
@elliot I didn’t mean that ACF should check other field names or other installed plugins, it would be crazy ! I just meant that a prefixing option would be safer. Because both ACF and All in One SEO Pack are well known and there’re a lot of chances that someone else use those 2 plugins and create a field named “description”… just like me. I’m not sure my case is that rare. I might not be aware of the implications of such a new feature however ?
