Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) Unable to add fields/existing fields disappeared Reply To: Unable to add fields/existing fields disappeared

  • I had the below code in my functions.php file and after removing it the problem seems to have gone away (as in I can now create fields without them disappearing, the Field Group that had the fields who disappeared in it is still empty, but I will rebuild and now see that the content still lives in the database). The below code was to take some text from an ACF and change the slug of the post to that text.

    add_action('save_post', 'change_default_slug');
    function change_default_slug($post_id) {
    //Check it's not an auto save routine
    if ( defined('DOING_AUTOSAVE') && DOING_AUTOSAVE ) 
    //Perform permission checks! For example:
    if ( !current_user_can('edit_post', $post_id) ) 
     //Check your nonce!
    //If calling wp_update_post, unhook this function so it doesn't loop infinitely
    remove_action('save_post', 'change_default_slug');
    // call wp_update_post update, which calls save_post again. E.g:
    wp_update_post(array('ID' => $post_id, 'post_name' =>get_post_meta($post_id,'request_number',true)));;
    // re-hook this function
    add_action('save_post', 'change_default_slug');

    Interested to hear why this might have caused a conflict, but grateful that the problem is gone!
