"Add row" button label missing

    Hello @elliot,

    after updating my flexible-content-addon (to the latest 1.1.0 version), I noticed that the “Add row” button isn’t getting the custom label (defined in the field option).

    The ACF plugin version is the latest, 4.3.0.

    Thanks, ACF 4.3.0 is great!!

    Adding my report to this thread, I just noticed this behavior too! Lovely update otherwise.

    Hi guys

    Thanks for the bug report. I think I know where the issue is and have a fix for you.

    Please edit the file acf-flexible-content/views/field.php and on line 4, change:

    if( $field['button_label'] )


    if( empty($field['button_label']) )

    That should fix it

    Just updated the add-on files, so all future updates should be fine.

    If I get more reports of this issue, I’ll release a new version to force the update.

    Thanks guys.

    Thanks @elliot!

  • I had this issue, just FYI

  • Thanks. The temporary fix works fine for me for now. The Flexible Content is one instance where I like to change Add Row to something else since these are usually not table rows in my use. Maybe the default can be Add Item in the future. Wonderful add-on.

  • Hi Elliot,

    Same problem here. My client is really confused hehe.
    Unfortunately the temp fix didn’t work for me.
    I downloaded the new version with the fix already implemented, but no luck.
    There is currently no way to delete the Flexible field (except if I remove the whole repeater field and add the data again)
    I hope there is another solution/hotfix!

    Thanks for your help,

    Hi @daansmit

    I think you may have the wrong thread. This thread is for the “add row” label, not for any issues regarding removing a layout.


  • Ah!You are right!

    Excuse me 🙂

  • Hi there,

    for me it seems to still doesn’t work.
    (I’ve installed also the Repeater Field).

    When I just create one Flexible Layout, the “Add row” button is there, and if I create a second, it is not.

    I have got the latest version, I did buy it yesterday.

    Thanks for your help, what can I try?

    Hi @paul_roe

    Thanks for the info. I’ll do some testing with 2 flexible content fields. Can you please check for any JS errors on your page?


  • Hi elliot,

    there is a SyntaxError: Unexpected token '<' in post.php:654, when I reload the post admin page.

    And I have to laugh… That was my fault! I have typed into the instruction field that users should avoid a “<script…” tag…

    Now it work’s.

    I doubt that this in the correct forum thread but I want to suggest an improvement. I am working with a multilanguage site with a form on the frontend and it is becoming quite difficult to change the button text, I see in the code that the default text “Add Row” is inside a translation function, but I want to use a custom text and have it translated. You could in future versions place the translation function also on the custom text eg: __ ($ field [‘button_label’]). If this is not necessary because there is a more efficient method already working, could you direct me to where I can find that information.

    Excellent complement

  • I would also like to be able to edit fields that are currently grouped.

  • It is good!!! thanks for sharing
