All acf powered widgets disappeared – no errors, no bugs… they just refuse to appear in the frontend completely – other none ACF widgets appear.
Tried turning off all other plugins.
no changes done to the theme in the past month.
1. widgets worked (showed in the front) a week ago.
2. they work in the backend
3. just don’t appear at all – as if won’t render on front.
What else can I do to debug/find the cause…
have created a dev-only environment to try and test it out.
going crazy here, any help appreciated
We are having the same issue on multiple sites. As a temporary fix, we are able to get the widgets to show up on the frontend by editing/publishing them via the customizer.
OMG thank you man (Really!) appreciate you ❤️🙏❤️🙏❤️
i spent 2 days on this shit.
ACF staff should really show a popup / a quick post notifying in such cases
we are wasting a lot of time and grow white hairs trying to track such things
No problem. I’m glad that it helped.
Thank you oncecoupled. This drove me crazy as well. The problem does still occur in Pro 5.12. As a tip for others: In the customizer widgets appear, which don’t show up on the frontend. We actually had to delete and then add the widgets again for them to appear on the frontend.
