Use same json file on multiple websites

  • Hi,

    Many times I find myself in the need of creating the same field groups on different websites over and over. For example, a set of fields for a slideshow, another one for locations on the map etc. Most of the times, those groups contain the exact same fields.

    To gain some time, I tried to copy the json file from one site to another and I saw that the fields seemed to be working OK.

    So, my question is this: would it be OK if I created a bunch of field groups, then get their json files and use them independently on many different sites? Is there any drawback to that approach?


  • None. The best way to transport field groups from one site to another in ACF5 is by using the JSON files to import the groups into another site.
