JSON export/import corrupt?

  • I have two WP installs sharing the same version both for WordPress itself (6.1.1) and ACF (6.0.5).

    I want to export ACF fields from the first install and import that to the second one. However, when importing, the ACF fields are broken.

    The JSON export looks like this:

    The PHP version of that after import looks like this:

    As you can see, the PHP version stops at the field group “Modules”, and it also turns it into a Text field instead of a Flexible Layout field. I’ve tried validating the JSON and it seems valid.

    What could be causing this issue?

  • I just tested your export file on one of my test sites and both field groups were imported successfully.

    I would start by deactivating other plugins to see if I can find what is interfering with the import. There is also the possibility that it is a filter in your theme that is causing the issue. The only other thing that I can think of is that you have the free version of ACF active on the site you are importing into.
