Noticed when editing a post with a Samsung Galaxy Tablet, android 4.1 (out of date)…
Behavior: When selecting a Taxonomy field, after the taxonomy is selected, the entire field group meta box disappears.
I’m assuming this is an out-of-date android issue, but reporting just the same.
Update: Have tested on Android 4.4.2 on a Moto-X phone, the issue is still there… Selecting a Taxonomy from a Taxonomy field causes the entire field group to disappear.
I have seen this on other hardware (traditional windows laptop), and I have seen it happen now on fields other than taxonomy fields, but it seems most common touch screen devices.
Your guess on the location rules resetting seems plausible because I have noticed that once the meta box disappears… if I then save the post as a draft, the data/taxonomy I entered will save as expected. When the page refreshes (after the draft saves) the meta box is back where it is expected.
Thanks for the login details and field group code. I can see the issue, and will do some more testing soon.
The issue is coming from logic within ACF which re-matches field groups when a taxonomy field is updated.
I think the issue comes from a secret taxonomy you are using called
cl_category. Because the page does not show this taxonomy value, ACF doesn’t know the post is connected to it and the matching logic fails…
If it helps in any way… the
cl_category taxonomy is set from a front end form by Gravity Forms and the field group that shows is completely dependent on that selection. It’s hidden purely for UI reasons.
Thanks for looking in,
