Hi, i´ve opened a ticket for this, i recived quick reply from James (thank´s James), but do not know how where that ticket is to reply there. So, here i´m asking same thing.
I have in my theme the acf-json/ folder, once i save a field group, the json files is created. I tried to manualy change things on the file (via text editor), like the group name. But once i save (text editor) it and return to acf->admin, i don´t see changes on the field group (that´s ok), but also i do not see that group as sync available.
I´m using since long time the sync feature to keep my local and production fields syncronized, everything is ok, but i belive i could even create a json file completly manualy on any text editor, i´m wrong?
What i´m doing wrong?
The thing comes when i try to use “private” as true for some groups, but i was unable to do that since no sync is available, and of course, once i save the gruop (wp admin) json is replaced/updated. So that part works.
Try altering the “modified” value at the end of the file. That is a timestamp that tells ACF when the file was update. You probably only need to add a few seconds.
Oh!!, can´t belive i didn´t notice that 🙂
Thanks so much John, working!
Honestly, it was a guess, so I’m glad it worked for you
