Can't edit after 5.3.9 update

  • After updating ACF Pro from to 5.3.9, buttons and tabs on the post edit screen stopped working. My client lost the ability to insert media or switch between Visual and Text modes. Restoring version fixed the problem.

    Other sites don’t have this problem so I’m guessing it’s a conflict with another plugin. I don’t have time right now to try to narrow it down but wanted to notify you in case others have this problem. I’ve attached a quick dump of the WP environment.

  • Hi @mcdonna,

    Thanks for reaching out to us.

    I agree with you speculation as its most likely a plugin conflict on your site.

    In order to ascertain which plugin is causing the issue, you will need to deactivate the plugins one by one in order to narrow down on the plugin that is causing the issue.

    Once you locate the problematic plugin, you can easily find an alternative of find the cause of the issue.

    Hopefully this helps.

  • Follow up … the latest release of ACF 5.4.3 fixes the problem.
