I’m afraid I already backed out the upgrade and edits. I’m almost sure there were not duplicate field groups. The fields were replicated at least 4-6 times too. I remember seeing many duplicate images on screen, when there should have only been one, and not seeing many field groups. My first thought was to delete the field groups, but I don’t think there were duplicates, if my memory is right.
