  • Hi @Maiwerk

    I believe the wp_acf_values table was used in version 1 or 2, not 100& sure as it has been so long since then.

    Version 3 and 4 definitely use the standard postmeta table, so this is why your older posts and newer posts use different tables.

    I would imagine that the version 3 plugin would have included an update script to migrate across all the data.

    Can I ask you what version of ACF did it originally use, and what version does it use now?

    To find a function such as read_from_wp_acf_values, you will need to download an older version of ACF which contains the logic to use this table and then do a copy / paste into your functions.php file.

    That said, It would be smarter to just migrate across the data. I would recommend that you dig through the source code of v3 and find the update.php file which contains the migration code.

    Good luck
