  • The latest version, 4.3.1, resolves issue for my setup. Page with issue is now rendering exactly as with ACF 4.2.2.

    My layout and loop sounds less complex than @intervik‘s. It is a single loop, which can run at most one time, and lists multiple posts containing the same set of custom fields.

    Confirmation procedure:

    1. Delete all cached versions of troublesome page. I wasted a lot of time in debugging and confirming the fix just due to resilient caching schemes.
      • Turn off all caching plug-ins.
      • Manually delete wp-content/cache directory.
      • Delete browser cache.
    2. Load page with ACF 4.2.2 -> PASS
    3. Replace ACF 4.2.2 with ACF-master from GitHub
    4. Load page with ACF-master (4.3.1) -> PASS
    5. Replace ACF-master (4.3.1) with ACF 4.3.0 from GitHub
    6. Load page with ACF 4.3.0 -> FAIL (as expected; sanity check)
    7. Replace ACF 4.3.0 with ACF 4.3.1 from WordPress plug-in page
    8. Load page with ACF 4.3.1 -> PASS

    @elliot, thanks for the quick turn-around on this.

    BTW, any way to append version number on WordPress hosted file, e.g. “advanced-custom-fields-4.3.1.zip”? It helps to quickly identify needed version of file and fast to archive without extra edit (and chance of label error) on user’s part.

    Peace
