Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) strange "Error Field type does not exist" Reply To: strange "Error Field type does not exist"

  • I know this is an old thread but just wanted to say thanks for all your replies – this thread helped me work out why my company’s downloads page (driven by WPDM and ACF) had stopped working.

    In the WP-Admin area, several Field Groups contained a “Field type does not exist” error in the ‘Type’ column. It took me a while to figure out that those broken field groups were using the ACF ‘repeater field’ type, which is driven by the separate ‘ACF Repeater’ plugin. The plugin had been accidentally deactivated on our setup and just needed reactivating.
