I’ve found an issue with exporting field groups that I thought you should be aware of. Just so you know, I’m not in a hurry to see it fixed but I figure that it will continue to be a problem in ACF5.
I’m working on building a plugin that will use ACF and I’m exporting a field group that I’ve created to put into the plugin.
There are many fields and help messages. Some of the instructions and messages display HTML markup. I enter this markup into the message or instructions something like this: <form>
This works fine when these fields are displayed until I export the field group’ and then try to use that export in my plugin. When I do that it is exported as: <form>
As you might guess, this completely breaks the display of the field group on my custom post type. You have to go into the values exported in the array and manually edit all the < and > back into < and >
Not even sure this can be corrected, like I said, just wanted you to be aware of it. Maybe something that can be corrected in the new ACF5 🙂 Again, no need to rush to fix this. I’d rather not take away from time to work on the new version, really looking forward to it.
