Hi John. Unfortunately this is not the problem. As I wrote before we already set the max to 9000. I installed the plugin you suggested and added a single text field to the group. Saved, got the update message and it is in the db but like any other field, it’s post_status is set to “future” and that’s the reason it doesn’t show up in the backend.
