I either found a bug or have reached a limit that isn’t possible. I am trying to put a Flexible Content field inside of a Flexible Content field inside of another Flexible Content field.
When I save it, the third nested Flexible Field inside of the first one gets kicked out and the names/fields do not save (all within ACF admin).
Can you help?
I am basically creating an FAQ page, with Category, Sub Category, and Answer/Question. Image attached for what I’m trying to do…
It is most likely that ACF is trying to save a value to the wp_postmeta table with a meta_key which is longer than the column allows.
Please consider re-structuring your fields to not use such a nested approach.
Perhaps a mixture of post_type + fields?
I ended up doing what you recommended and figured out a solution. Thanks!
No I gotta figure out how to code the template 🙂
Appreciate the quick help.
How did you put Flexible Content inside Flexible Content? I couldnt find it in panel.. am i missing something or did you put it with php rather then using panel?
Is there any specific problem in there that you unset it? what was reason? can we safely remove that?
This to me is a bug and would be brilliant if this was fixed.
@elliot I would disagree with your opinion on nested content being confusing, if you name things correctly it makes perfect sense.
See my image of my layout. Having another “flexible content” where the “Add content” button is simply breaks, as described here.
