Yes, I get the “PHP Fatal error: Can’t use function return value in write context in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/advanced-custom-fields-pro/includes/local-fields.php on line 304”. Sorry forgot to mention this. If this is indeed a PHP 5.4 related issue, this means godaddy did not update to 5.6, and still runs on 5.4 (even if I did the update). Will check a phpinfo.
