I’m using several ACF Taxonomy select fields in an ACF group.
They work quite well except that they load options very slowly.
I played around with some extensions which have similar fields but slightly different options. In the end I noticed that, if I disable AJAX / Lazy loading in specific fields of those plugins, their options are loaded much faster, and now I’m wondering if I can do something similar with ACF.
I’d like to keep ACF default Taxonomy field because it gives me the chance to add a new value for that specific tax on fly, but I’d love to know if/how can I turn off AJAX Lazy loading for all my select2 fields.
There isn’t any way to disable this that I know of. If the field is slow then there are some likely reasons; slow connection, slow server, large number of terms in the taxonomy.
