I’ve upgraded the memory_limit to 256M both in php.ini and config.php. i have no errors logged.
######## UPDATE ##########
I decided to run a test.
1. I got a new WP installation up.
2. Used WP default theme
3. Installed ACF only (no add-ons)
4. Added new field group
5. Started adding field by field. Field1 / Update – Field2 / Update and so on…
After I reached Field57 no more fields can be saved. Not only the fields, but any settings below that last field. “Locations” (if statements) and “Options” (hide/show metabox) won’t save.
If I remove one field. I am able to save the options and I am able to add another field.
I have a VPS. So I set it up to have 256M of memory_limit. I also set WP to have the following:
I read in the codex that WP_MEMORY_LIMIT only works on the front-end and that WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT is for the backend.
I also checked error logs in the public_html folder and in the theme folder. There are no errors.
ACF is the only plugin installed.
There are no pages/posts or extra amount of content that could slow down the page on save.
The ACF field page itself, throws no errors. It does not take long to load once you click on “Update”.
While trying to trouble shoot the issue. I also noticed that there’s a glitch with the “update” button and WP 3.8. The button is initially red (theme color), but once the page has loaded the button goes back to “blue” which was the original color before WP 3.8.
I am on iOS Mavericks 10.9.1
I tried adding more fields using the latest versions of Safari, Firefox and Chrome. My primary browser is Chrome.
I downgraded the plugin to version 4.1.0
I was able to add 17 more fields. So I am now on Field74. After adding field 74, I run in to the same issue again.
I am still running more test.
