Just renewing the request to be able to move fields from one group to another. So many times I’ve had to delete and recreate a bunch of fields (and reenter all the content) due to a client request or misunderstanding – it’s just painful.
Love the plugin, though, thank you so much!!! This is my favorite plugin of all time and I’m happy to have purchased the add-ons. I’d purchase this if it were an add-on too!
In regards to Davids request to be able to duplicate. Since the fieldgroups are basically posts you can actually use this plugin:
I’ve tried it myself on a fieldgroup containing repeaterfields and other fields with success so I think it’d work fine on any fieldgroup.
Perhaps this could be added to the documentation so that everyone and not just ppl finding their way here become aware of this 🙂
I have one group (Group_1) with 25 fields with prefix “tab1_” and i want make another tab with prefix “tab2”. If i do it in the same group i need duplicate all fields, drag them under new tab and replace new field name prefix. it’s not so difficult, but duplicating inside field group takes a lot of time 🙁
There described just 2 actions to achieve desired result:
1. Find IDs of groups you want to move fields between (From Group -> To Group)
SELECT * FROM wp_posts WHERE post_type="acf"
you’ll see all the field groups, so just remember 2 FromID and ToID
2. Find all fields of From Group
SELECT * FROM wp_postmeta WHERE meta_key LIKE "field_%" AND post_id=FromID
then just change post_id of appropriate fields to ToID and all these fields will be moved to To Group
