Hi, does your plugin support saving data from the front ( using acf_form() )  (not from the admin area) ? Thanks for your help.

You have to create the custom posts by hand, one by one, from the admin. If you import them bulk, the custom table will not be updated. I have a custom post already created that I want to transfer to custom table; if I go to a post and update it, nothing happens, the data is not saved in the custom table.

This plugin is very useful. The only feature I would love to see is an automatic update option built in.

First of all I want to thanks the author of this amazing plugin… we have a meet call where he explained to me some really usefully tricks to import a large database in his custom table, saving hours of working. This plugin is a must for anyone who use ACF. Also it works perfect with the JSON method from ACF. Nothing if more fast than this combination…. Again thanks and thanks 😄

Working with a custom table is much more clear than working with the wp_postmeta table. I can edit the custom table now directly without problems. Many thanks to the developer 🙂
