After the upgrade to ACF 5 Pro, I now have duplicate Group Field blocks on each edit page/post page on the admin console. I have included a screenshot for reference.
On the ACF Admin page, I only have 1 of each field group listed (as expected).
Only the bottom of the 2 boxes is savable – when I add a new row to the top box and update the post/page, nothing is saved. However, when I add a new row to the bottom box, the content is saved and both boxes are updated with the new content.
Is there any chance you ran the DB upgrade twice?
ie. upgrade to 5, rollback to 4, upgrade to 5 again?
This would explain why the field’s have been duplicated and I have added a fix for this in the recent 4.3.9 update which will prevent this issue
Did you get sorted? If so, what was the fix?
I’ve got almost the exact same issue:
I’m afraid I already backed out the upgrade and edits. I’m almost sure there were not duplicate field groups. The fields were replicated at least 4-6 times too. I remember seeing many duplicate images on screen, when there should have only been one, and not seeing many field groups. My first thought was to delete the field groups, but I don’t think there were duplicates, if my memory is right.
I am having the same issue, but after upgradingd to free 4.3.9. I was able to repeat the bug on two separate instances by simply upgrading. The duplicated fields were not savable.
I did found the duplicated groups under Field Groups admin, and deleting the latter seemingly solved the issue.
