ACF, Yoast & WooCommerce

  • Hello!

    I have been dealing with a fairly frustrating problem for a little while now, and figured I’d see if anyone has a solution.

    Currently I have to disable ACF in order to make any changes to the product gallery or Yoast settings, which in turn breaks the site because I use the ACF fields to populate a lot of the product data.

    Here’s what I’m up against:

    WooCommerce – Cannot add photos to gallery, cannot access product data tabs via product page. (Unless ACF is disabled)
    Yoast – Cannot do anything via product page. (Unless ACF is disabled)

    This applies to both my local dev environment as well as the live site.

    Local Dev Server (Bedrock & Trellis)

    • WooCommerce Version: 2.6.2
    • WordPress Version: 4.5.3
    • WP Memory Limit: 256 MB
    • Server Info: nginx/1.9.14
    • PHP Version:

    Remote Live Server (Cloudways)

    • WooCommerce Version: 2.6.2
    • WordPress Version: 4.5.3
    • WP Memory Limit: 256 MB
    • Server Info: Apache/2.2.22 (Debian)
    • PHP Version: 5.6.23-1~dotdeb+7.1

    Active Plugins

    • Redux Framework by Team Redux –
    • Advanced Custom Fields by Elliot Condon – 4.4.7
    • Akismet by Automattic – 3.1.11

    • WooThumbs – Awesome Product Imagery by James Kemp – 4.4.13

    • Wordfence Security by Wordfence – 6.1.10
    • WP Rocket by WP Rocket – 2.8.8

    Sage starter theme

    Both WP installs are basically the same except I don’t have the akismet, caching or security plugins on my local install.

    I have tried disabling individual plugins to see which one causes an issue. Problems go away after disabling ACF. Also tried installing Yoast’s ACF plugin which didn’t help.


  • From console of product page:

    JQMIGRATE: Migrate is installed, version 1.4.1 load-scripts.php:9:542

    ReferenceError: acf is not defined

    Prefixed Fullscreen API is deprecated. Please use unprefixed API for fullscreen.

    For more help load-scripts.php:387:6458
    TypeError: acf.o is null

  • I’m beginning to think it has to do with the order that some js is loaded as referenced by this post:

    I’m going to look into it a bit more this evening and report back my findings.

    Please don’t let that stop anyone from commenting and/or helping out!

  • Ok, the problem stemmed from some custom code I added to defer parsing of js.

    I commented it out, and now everything works as it should.
