Differences in How ACF Handles Deleted Fields

  • Hello

    I think we all know that ACF data does not get deleted from the db when fields are removed in the ACF settings in the WordPress admin, however, we discovered some differences in behavior based on field type

    For instance, data from ordinary text and image fields will still render on pages but data from repeater fields will not. The data stays in the db but will not render on pages when the associated field is removed from the ACF settings. Maybe that is because of the looping mechanism needed for repeater data or because it is an add-on?

    Anyway, we just wanted to find out if there are any other exceptions to the rule like that in case of mistakes made by our site admins

    Thanks in advance
