Caching field data: auto or manual?

  • I have a page with several functions using the same custom field data.

    Does ACF/WP cache the data on its own? Should I do my own caching? If I should do my own, do you have any recommended methods so I don’t have to reinvent the wheel?

  • WP automatically caches any data from meta fields that are retrieved from the DB. ACF also has it’s own mechanism for caching. Any call to get_field() or any other ACF function will only make one DB call no matter how many times the same field name is used.
