Sorry mate, I’m a bit confused abotu this one. Can you elaborate a bit more on the issue and what the solution would look like?
In the latest builds, I have re-written how ACF is instantiated to make sure that even if multiple ACF plugins are included, only 1 object is ever created.
Perhaps the solution is to simply include ACF in your theme always, and if the user has the plugin also activated, your theme include will not conflict as ACF will know not to create another ACF object
