I have a page with about 60 repeater fields.
In each repeater there are 6 fields. making that more than 360 fields just for that area, and I would like to add more repeater fields in the future.
When trying to save more fields to the page I get a blank white page.
The site is hosted on a shared server, and I would like to know if with some code adjustments I can fix this.
Is it a max_vars issue?
Is there a way to solve this by coding the ACF query?
The site is running on ACF 5 Pro.
You’ve probably guessed it, looks like a max_input_vars problem. While it looks like you only have 360 fields, when creating field groups you need to mulitply that by all the different settings that are possible for each field (id, label, name, type, instructions, etc, etc.) There are probably at least 10 fields for every field you’re creating so that turns your 360 fields into 3600 fields being sent when you hit submit.
If your host does not allow you to override php values in one of these ways, I don’t think there’s much else you can do. You’re best bet is to contact your hosting provider and ask them if they provide a way to make the change.
