Thanks for the info.
Yes, in a recent update, I changed the logic so that the taxonomy field will only save selected terms. This is different from the previous functionality which would also load terms connected to the post..
The reason for this change was to allow sub fields to select different sub fields but allow them to save all selections to the post.
Perhaps I should add in an extra option for taxonomy fields to allow them to ‘save’ as well as ‘load’ terms based on the post. Yes, I’ll add this in to the next version
For now, can you change your code to not use get_fields (to get the post’s terms), but instead use get_the_terms WP function?
