Terms/Categories: “Cat1, Cat2, Cat3, Cat4 and Cat5“.
Group fields: “Groupfield 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5” – each of those holds up 50 subfields.
Using conditional logic, I can have “Groupfield 1” show when I assign the post to “Cat1“, same with “Groupfield 2” & “Cat2“, and so on. This way (if each fieldgroup is composed by 50 subfields each) I will have only 50 fields on screen at any time.
This is clear and have no issue with any of that.
What I would like to know is: given a POST under “Cat1” (and hence showing only “Groupfield 1”), and given each groupfield is composed by 50 fields:
Every time I OPEN a post, would ACF/Wordpress have to load (50*5) 250 fields?
Every time I SAVE a post, would ACF/Wordpress have to save those 250 fields again?
Or would WordPress/ACF read/save only those 50 fields that do show up?
I’m greatly concerned with performance and stability: I’d rather find another way than having a site that takes 30 seconds to save or open a post, so before I start working in this direction, could you please give me an answer? The sooner the better as I’m literally gonna wait of a reply of yours/your staff.
Thanks in advance!
