Remove field entries when deleting post

  • After deleting a post without ACF fields and emptying the trash there are no traces left in the database. But when I delete a post with a post-type that has ACF fields assigned to it, the entries of these field are not deleted.

    I know similar questions have been asked, but I just can’t imagine it is impossible to remove the entries of a post. I would really like to see this in a future update of ACF.

  • I think I’ve spoken to soon. The keyword I was searching for in phpMyAdmin was also part of a instructions field.

    So field entries do get deleted when a post is deleted I guess?

  • Yes, fields get deleted when a post is deleted. WP takes care of cleaning this up. The same for terms and users that are deleted.

  • Thanks for the quick reply!
