Okay, I think I’ve narrowed down the bug.
In my original ‘Columns’ layout I had a radio button so people could select the column layout they wanted, for example “100%” or “33% / 66%” or “33% / 33% / 33%”.
I set up 3 WYSIWYG editors and used conditionals to hide/show them in the editing panel based on what the user selected. So if you chose “100%” you’d see just one editor (this is the default), if you chose “33/66” you’d see two editors, and 3 editors for 33/33/33.
So here are the steps to recreate the issue.
So, the “fix” is to delete all content out of all three Editors, save the page, then delete the layout, then save the page again – every time you want to delete a layout row. If you don’t do that, and get too many layout addition/deletions down the road, it becomes impossible to find the content that’s saved in the db because it doesn’t appear in the WYSIWYG editors when you add new layout rows.
Or is it just me? 🙂 I just updated to the most recent ACF Pro though I’m not on 4.3 yet.
