Advanced Custom Fields
Deleted subfields remain the DB (3 posts)

    Hi,
    I've bought the repeater option and used it to declare a series of dates.
    If I add X dates to the post and save it, everything's fine. If I edit the post removing a date from the series, in the DB (table "postmeta") the date is still present.
    It's a big problem since I have to find at once which post has a date subfield set to a certain day, so I have to check these values, but I have to do it with a custom SQL query and I can't use your repeater functions.

    Why the deleted subfield is not removed from the DB?
    This would also mean that if I frequently change the subfields, all the old values still remain in the DB, totally unused?
