Impossible to reorder fields in ACF PRO

  • Hi,

    I have an issue with reordering the field in the admin.
    I have set this order:
    -TAB 1
    — field 11
    — field 12
    — field 13
    -TAB 2
    — field 21
    — field 22

    When I save, I have this:
    – field 21
    – field 22
    -TAB 2
    -TAB 1
    — field
    — field
    — field

    or sometimes this :
    -TAB 2
    — field 21
    — field 22
    -TAB 1
    — field
    — field
    — field

    I’ve tried to delete then create new field, I just can’t reorder them -_-
    Any ideas?

    —- Versions —-
    ACF v5.3.1
    WP v4.3.1

  • I’ve tried to create 2 new field at the end of the list, but after saving they are moved to the top:
    ACF Admin issue

  • I’ve tried to install ACF Pro on an other wordpress website, I have the same issue.

    Does anyone had this one?

  • Hi @pushaune

    I’ve never heard of this issue before and never encountered it.
    Could you try disabling all other plugins to see if something is interfering with ACF?

    Also if possible switch to a default twenty- theme 🙂

  • Hi!

    Found it! This code was on the function.php and was messing with ACF PRO:

    // Connection error
    add_filter('login_errors',create_function('$a', "return null;"));
    
    function set_post_order_in_admin( $wp_query ) {
      if ( is_admin() ) {
        $wp_query->set( 'orderby', 'post_status' );
        $wp_query->set( 'order', 'DESC' );
      }
    }
    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'set_post_order_in_admin' );

    I removed it and it works just fine 🙂

  • Ah great 🙂

    I believe it was only this part that messed with ACF tho:

    
    function set_post_order_in_admin( $wp_query ) {
      if ( is_admin() ) {
        $wp_query->set( 'orderby', 'post_status' );
        $wp_query->set( 'order', 'DESC' );
      }
    }
    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'set_post_order_in_admin' );
    

    If you want to retain the functionality that code gives you without affecting ACF you can specify which post types you want to use it for.
