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
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 🙂
