  • Some common reasons for not saving

    ACF will only save to the acf-json folder of the current theme. For example you can’t write to the parent theme of a child theme unless you set up a custom save location. Also, ACF will not load json files from the parent theme unless a custom load point is added

    This folder needs to have permissions set to that it can be written to.

    If you are creating a theme that will use a child theme then the best practice would be to do all ACF work in the parent theme and set a custom load point to load json files from the parent theme.
