we have an older website currently running acf 5.5.5
the compatibility with gutenberg was with 5.6.9 according to the patch notes.
So my question is now, there is a plugin called “classic editor”.
If i update wordpress to 5.0, stay with acf 5.5.5 and install the classic editor.
Will everything still work, or do i have to update acf.
Any experience with that ? 🙂
Everything should work correctly even without the plugin. The only issue I have seen so far is that ACF does not remove the gutenberg editor if the hide checkbox is clicked when creating the field group.
I would suggest installing the gutenberg plugin to try it out and see what changes actually effect you. Since we all have our own coding structures things can change from one site to the other.
