I’ve recently upgraded the plugin from Version 4 to ACF PRO Version 5. The data copied over well and everything seems to be pretty good and alot faster which is great!
One issue I’ve found is the I have 2 Groups of Custom Fields setup for a Custom Post Type. The 2 groups display fine for the Administrator. However they don’t display for Contributors. I need Contributors to be able to login and edit their information. I even tried setting a conditional rule to show the group for those with a User Role = Contributor but they still didn’t show.
Could there be an issue with the logic here? I’m using WordPress 4. In ACF Version 4 the fields showed fine for the contributors. It seems since the upgrade to ACF Pro 5 and WordPress 5 they aren’t showing now…
Hi There, it wasn’t a new filter that solved the issue.
The problem was our custom theme. We were using the pre_get_posts WordPress filter to only show relevant posts to Contributors. This filter was also filtering out ACF fields… so we had to update our theme to check the post_type of what we’re filtering and not filter out ACF fields…
