ACF, PHP, WP/CP | Type: PHPCommon WP functions converted to variables

Sometimes functions are easier to use in conditional statements if converted to variables.

$excerpt = get_the_excerpt();
$date = get_the_date( 'F j, Y', $post_id ); //post date
$url = get_template_directory_uri();
$link = get_the_permalink();
$title = get_the_title ();

$startdate = DateTime::createFromFormat('Ymd', get_field('evstart_date')); //ACF custom field

then used in template:

echo $startdate->format('l, F j, Y');
