Export field data from regular page to options page

  • Hi!
    I recently made some improvements to one of my sites using ACF. Instead of having some fields in the edit page of my homepage, I made a dedicated option page to make it cleaner.

    The problem is that there are tons of fields that were already filled in that homepage and I can’t seem to find a way to move that data to the options page. I tried exporting some of the data from the wp_postmeta table, modifying the CSV file so that it would have the same syntax as fields already in wp_options, and importing it there in SQL but ACF doesn’t seem to be registering the data. I’m pretty sure the syntax is right, but I suspect the field IDs located in meta_value/option_value columns to be causing the problem (field_5f85acfb96106 for example). I’m honestly not sure how it works exactly, I don’t see how I could fix those.

    Anyway, I’m searching for a solution and I’m surprised it can’t be done easily or there isn’t much documentation on this. Maybe I’m doing something wrong?

    Thank you for your help 🙂
