I deleted the four rows in yellow in the attached pic DB1.
The situation now:
– ACF field name is “year_of_release”
– when I edit an existing post, the field shows up as empty (doesn’t pick up string “Again” from the database)
– when I type a new value in the existing post, the field saves OK – the database now looks like DB2 image (yellow fields are new)
– when I add a new post, the field saves OK, the database now looks like DB3 image (yellow fields are new)
I’m guessing the double fields are working and the single one (after rename) isn’t. After renaming my UTF8 character, it only saves a single field, so it isn’t working.
Btw – why do the fields save twice in the DB? Post locking / versioning?
