acf_add_local_field_group vs register_field_group

  • I noticed that when you export a field group to PHP it uses register_field_group yet in the documentation for creating fields via PHP you recommend using acf_add_local_field_group. Is there a particular reason to use one vs the other?

  • I just did some digging around in the code. Basically all register_field_group() does it call acf_add_local_field_group().

    register_field_group is the old function and it’s still there for backwards compatibility. It’s likely that this new function has just not made it into the exported code yet.

  • That was my conclusion too, I just wasn’t sure if there was any particular preference. Thanks!
