The plot thickens. I think I’ve figured out what’s going on but not sure. It seems that the repeater field stored in the post_meta table shows as 0 and that number doesn’t change when the update_sub_field() function is called. Not sure if this was working in an earlier version, but it’s not working in 5.2.5.
