Is it okay to use same names for fields in different ACF layouts?

  • Can it lead to problems when i use the same names for different flexible field? I mean when i make flexible fields and one field is called

    – info_box
    – – headline
    – – content
    – – link

    and another box like

    – info_box_large
    – – headline
    – – content
    – – link

    is it okay to use the same names? I think it’s okay but i am not sure … .
    And in general – is it better to give unique field names? With database n mind …

  • No, it does not lead to problem because of the way ACF stores the information in the database.

    You are correct, it is fine to use the same names.

  • Thanks a lot john, now i will sleep better 🙂
