I purchased the Developer licence and installed ACF5 Pro on a site I’m currently working on.
The installation was fine and I updated the database as requested, however:
– When I try to enter my licence the page reloads but the licence isn’t saved
– At the top of the “Updates” page: “Error. Could not connect to update server”
– I’ve created a Gallery but when I add images and click “update” they are never saved
I’ve disabled all other plug-ins etc – any ideas how this can be resolved.
I logged on this morning and there was no error message about connecting to the server and I was able to save the licence key. I also updated ACF Pro to Version 5.0.7.
I tried to save an image to the gallery without any success. I then switched theme to WordPress 2012 and could save an image to the gallery. Switched back to my own bare-bones theme and I could now also save images to the gallery so all appears to now be functioning correctly.
I’d like to persist with ACF 5 but I’m worried about flaky performance. My theme is really stripped back and I can’t see anything in my functions.php which would affect the admin area in any way.
