Data from Flexible Content Fields Inside Repeater Fields Is Left Hanging …

  • Hi:

    I discovered a problem with Flexible Content Fields nested in Repeater fields: if you delete the repeater row without first deleting the flexible content row, the data and fields from the flexible content fields remain in the database.

    To replicate:
    Use the attached json file, or create a Repeater field, and add a flexible content field with a least one layout, and add it to a post type.

    Add a new post, and a row in your repeater field, then add a row in your flexible content field. Add data to that layout’s field, and save. You’ll see entries in the db like this: http://j.mp/1SSHbNj.

    Now, delete the repeater row without deleting the flexible content row. Check your db again: http://j.mp/1SSHLed. Now the repeater row is gone, but the flexible content field data remains.

    This is a undesirable because:

    1. It leaves a lot of probably unused fields in the database unnecessarily, and
    2. If a user adds a new flexible content row, then it will pick up the values left in the database from the old repeater row’s flexible content field.

    Thank you!
