  • There isn’t a setting to change how a field is saved in ACF5.

    Unfortunately you will need to rework front end code that depended on the value in the DB being in a specific format.

  • Any other ways / suggestions. So that that I don’t have recode a whole website? Using a filter maybe?

  • You could probably add an acf/format_value filter for the field https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/acf-format_value/

    Please note that the field name and field key variants of the hook are available for this hook, they just are not documented.

    Set the priority > 10 and then convert the value form a date into a timestamp in your filter

  • I think the option to just save the timestamp should be added.
