Hi @Phil Futureproof
1. No. A field type is ‘text’, ‘textarea’, ‘image’, etc. You do not need to change your field names. If you website uses any custom field types, you will need to re-create these
2. No. The repeater field needs to be used as a normal plugin unless you are including it within a premium theme to be distributed. Please read the readme carefuly – there are 2 ways to activate the add-on. The easiest and most popular is to use it like a normal plugin
3. No. No new code is needed. You can use the same functions as before
Hope that helps.
