Flexible Content Fields with local json save out of order

  • Has anyone else seen this behavior? When saving a Custom Field Group that is a flexible content, the fields inside of the layout get their order changed. Usually the top items move to the bottom.

    My builds are custom so I don’t usually have many other plugins installed and build using Sage with Roots. I’ve seen the behavior on both sage v8 and v9.

    I think it started with V5 of WP, but not certain. My guess is the local json saving is where the issue happens. I use that as I work with other devs on projects and they also encounter the issue.

  • YES. It’s happening for us very frequently – at least 5 times today that I’ve had this happen for me. Not sure what is going on, but we haven’t been able to track it down to any filter or any plugin, thus far. We’ve built a theme with Sage and did have to use a few filters to change where the acf-json folder is loaded, but that shouldn’t cause any issues.

  • YES. I was beginning to think I was losing it. Glad to know it’s not just me!

    It gets extra messy on my set up too – most of my ~24 flexible layouts use tabs – so if the first field (usually a tab) gets moved to the end, the tabs get all messed up too.

  • This is definately a bug in the import/sync. I have reported it to Elliot. I tried to figure out how to fix it cuz I was in a bind to get something done but I’m completely baffled why the first field in every layout gets pushed to the end.

  • Thanks John! Hope you hear back from Elliot soon!
