In some cases, you can not use Gutenberg’s native Dynamic data fields or ACF’s own shortcode. Ie. if you have to format/manipulate the data before displaying it.
I am finding that there are many ways to get ACF data in Gutenberg. What are the pros and cons of these techniques? What is the recommended way?
1. Custom shortcode: create a shortcode for ACF data and use it with a Shortcode block. Seems to have some problems with the Query block.
2. Filter / render_block: Give Gutenberg block a custom class and switch it to ACF content with filter. This works with the Query loop.
3. Custom hook: Create a custom hook inside the Gutenberg block (requires a plugin/custom code).
4. Some other, smarter way.
Thank you for any input or links to more info. I am a bit confused about what to use.
