ACF meta data stored in custom database table

Faster Searches & Easy Export!

It's now possible to store ACF meta data across clearly structured columns in normalised database tables. Structured data offers more flexibility & speed when writing complex SQL queries.

You can even disable saving of data to core meta tables which can drastically reduce the size of a database.

This plugin is a game changer for search powered websites! I’m seriously impressed!

ACF is amazing for clients, BUT storing all the information in the same table as ACF does usually make you discard it when you need to create something big. Not anymore! This plugin moves ACF to the next level.

ACF Custom Database tables plugin is a total game changer for me. I use Advanced Custom Fields on all my websites and always worried about overloading the database with repeaters and custom fields, but no more. So if you use ACF, this plugin is a must.

A nice plugin that turns user posts into usable data.

Works best with:

  • Advanced Custom Fields Pro v5.8+
  • Advanced Custom Fields Free v5.8+
  • WordPress 5.2+ & PHP 7.0+
