Custom Fields panel looks strange and doesn't work

  • Hi, first congratulations about the great v5 update. I’m trying to implement it in a theme. I didn’t have problems with the old version but now there is something quirky going on. I’ve copied the plugin to the main theme directory in a folder named acf and included it:

    add_filter('acf/settings/path', 'my_acf_settings_path');
    function my_acf_settings_path( $path ) {
    	$path = get_stylesheet_directory() . '/acf/';
    	return $path;
    add_filter('acf/settings/dir', 'my_acf_settings_dir');
    function my_acf_settings_dir( $dir ) {
    	$dir = get_stylesheet_directory() . '/acf/';
    	return $dir;

    However when I enter the Custom Fields panel in the admin dashboard and click the Add New button next to the Field Groups title (see field_groups.png), the panel looks very strange. See the attached add_new_field.png. And it’s not functioning properly – “Add Field” button is not working, neither are options appearing for the different field types. Publish is also not saving the current field.

    That may be the cause of this?

  • Oh, I changed
    $dir = get_stylesheet_directory() . '/acf/';

    $dir = get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/acf/';

    and it works. I’m stupid..

  • Hi @eXalted

    Thanks for the solution!
