Page Attributes Disappear

  • I have a clean WordPress install (4.1.1) and ACF Pro 5.2.0. When adding new Pages in the WP Admin, the Page Attributes box is disappearing, even though I have it checked in Screen Options. Once I select a parent for the page I’m creating, it hides instantly.

    Also, I have comments disabled by default, but it’s turning them on for the page whenever I create and Publish it. I disabled ACF Pro 5.2.0 (the only plugin I have installed) for testing, and the issues go away.


  • I have the same problem. Page attributes box disappear after page parent selection …

  • I have a very similar issue — just slightly different. I have a custom taxonomy metabox and the normal Categories metabox showing. As soon as I click on any given taxonomy term or category, the Categories metabox is instantly hidden.

    I can get it back under Screen Options, but it goes away again if I click any term again.

    WP 4.1.1 & ACF 5.2.0, and as above, when disabled, the problem goes away.

  • Same here, after updating to 5.2.0 everytime that i change template on a page, the page attributes box disappear.
    I’ve to go to screen settings and check back the “Page attributes” checkbox.

  • Quick (and ugly) fix :

    // fix for ACF PRO version 5.20
    add_filter(‘admin_footer’, function(){
    echo ‘<script type=”text/javascript”>jQuery(“#screen-options-wrap .metabox-prefs”).prepend(\'<input type=”checkbox” style=”display: none;”>\’);</script>’;

  • Since most everyone else is having issues only with page attributes, I wanted to demo the related issue of certain other metaboxes disappearing. In this case, it’s the Categories box.

    Here’s a screenshot of that…

  • Got this same issue and its upsetting

  • temporary solution provided by @holblin but just a bit tidy.

    add_filter(‘admin_footer’, function(){
    echo “<script type=’text/javascript’>jQuery(‘#screen-options-wrap .metabox-prefs’).prepend(‘<input type=”checkbox” style=”display: none;”>’);</script>”;
