  • Hi Elliot

    Thanks for the quick reply……I’ve checked all the plugins carefully, and the only other one that does anything with post metadata is the All-in-One SEO pack, which we can’t get rid of.

    ACF does post the data just fine when it’s initially entered, it just doesn’t seem to update it if someone edits an existing Post and changes some of what was originally entered. I was testing on a Post where I ‘unhid’ the normal (WP) Custom Fields metabox, which shows the same key>value pairs as was entered using the ACF custom fields, but they don’t update if we change the data in the ACF fields, only if we change it in the (WP) Custom Fields…since we don’t give our users access to the WP Custom Fields, it seems like we can’t modify metadata…..

    Any other thoughts or suggestions?
