Field Names

  • I’ve recently discovered some field names that caused the plugin to not work or error.

    They are as:
    advisors
    advisory_board
    field_effect

    I changed their name to:
    advisor_list
    board_list
    f_effect

    What about these names would cause the plugin to not function correctly.

  • Old question, but for anyone looking for the same type of information.

    field_effect is a special case. This will cause a problem because it conflicts with ACFs field key names. In newer versions of ACF5, ACF will not let you begin a field name with field_

    As far as the others go, most likely the names are conflicting with something else in WP. It could be anything from the name of a custom post type or taxonomy to another plugin already using these field names.
