ACF Gutenberg block isn't selectable

  • I’m just starting to use the Gutenberg editor for all my ACF needs now. However, after registering the block it can be selected in the ACF field creator under blocks > Test & assigned a field. However, it’s not displaying as an option with the Gutenberg blocks drop-down on a page?

    WP Version: 5.3.2
    ACF Pro Version: 5.8.7

    if (function_exists('acf_register_block_type')) {
        add_action('acf/init', 'register_acf_block_types');
    function register_acf_block_types(){
        acf_register_block_type( array(
            'name'              => 'test',
            'title'             => __('test'),
            'description'       => __('A test'),
            'render_template'   => 'templates/blocks/textarea.php',
            'icon'              => 'editor-paste-text',
            'keywords'          => array('test', 'testing'),
  • I have similar problem with registering blocks. I have also WP Version: 5.3.2
    and ACF Pro Version: 5.8.7.
    It doesn’t work on server with PHP 5.6, but it works on another server with PHP 7.x. Can be reason?

  • Same problem. Same versions.

  • I have a possibly related issue: if I use acf_register_block_type on the acf/init hook, the block doesn’t render in the frontend. If I use the init hook, it works. This appears to be a new problem, as my code was working fine in December.
