How to Sync Image Fields


How to Sync Author Fields

Similar to Images, WordPress treats "Users" as a separate entity, so special steps need to be taken:
  1. 1.
    In WordPress, go to your ACF custom field for Authors
  2. 2.
    In the field name add "_fk_users" at the end
  3. 3.
    In Airtable, make the field a linked record to the Users table
  4. 4.
    Map the fields in Whalesync
