I have a flexible content system setup as a page builder like structure. However for one of the pages, one of the flexible content fields is just becoming too big because it has a repeater field in it. I was wondering if there is a way to export the content out of it and then just create a new field group and import the data.
I have a lot of data in this repeater that is nested and I would hate to spend days copying and pasting the data from these fields into the new standalone field group!
Thanks for the support – ACF PRO is the BEST!!!
I’m afraid there’s no tool to do it yet. What you can do is to create the new field group and then use the update_field() function to fill the newly created fields. This page should give you more idea about it: https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/update_field/.
Please keep in mind that you need to use the field key to update the newly created fields.
I hope this helps 🙂
Ok thank you for the tip, I will try to write a universal function to do this, if successful will post here.
You could try something like this (if I understand your question correctly):
