  • For the first problem, the issue is most likely caused by WP saving the order of the field groups when a user saves a post. WP remembers the order that they’re displayed and shows them in that order every time it the user has edited a post before. There are two ways that I know of to correct this. The first is to drag the field groups into the order that you want them and the second is to go into the user meta table in the database and delete the entry that WP saves for the sort-able meta fields.

    As far as the second part, the hide on page check boxes only have an effect for the first field group that ACF includes on a page according to the sort order specified in the acf field groups. In this case it is the group “page banners” that’s going to control what is and is not shown on the editor page. At least that’s the way it’s supposed to work.
