Is this expected Behavior? Will ACF always render any shortcode in a WYSIWIG field and why would this be treated differently than WordPress’s own WYSIWIG behavior, say on a post or page? If it is default behavior, can I override it for specific fields?
Thanks for the help and let me know if I can provide any other details!
No, this is not expected behavior. ACF does not run shortcodes on the content when saving and loading fields in the admin. You’ve probably got something else going on. I can’t even say what since I’ve never seen this happen. More than likely another plugin or something in your theme? Try deactivating other plugins.
Thanks for the quick answer. I didn’t think so. After some inspection looks like it was one of my poorly written functions 🙂
