Hi @elliot – I’m now encountering a similar issue on a different website. I’ve been adding fields right along and their values have been saving without a hitch, until now.
I’ve created a new field and made sure to give it a unique name, but any new fields I add at this point are useless. When I try to enter a value and save it, nothing happens. WordPress says that the changes were saved but none of the new fields’ values are actually saved to the database. I haven’t had this issue before on this particular site and nothing has changed recently, so I’m baffled. Is it possible that W3 Total Cache is interfering? I’ve had it installed the entire time and no other fields have been affected. There was an update available for ACF but even after upgrading, the issue persists. It only occurs on new fields. All existing fields’ values are saved successfully.
Any ideas? I figured it would be easier to continue the discussion here other than starting an entirely new topic since this is along the same lines.
PS — I don’t know if it helps but these fields are used on a custom post type that I created.
