I am having a series of problems using custom fields with type repeater.
With one field when I try to delete a row it seems deleted but after clicking “update” and seeing “Options Updated.” the row is still there.
It happens a similar thing when I tried to update a field of type date contained in another repeater, it seems fine but after the page refresh, the date disappears.
I am using Version 5.8.9 of ACF PRO and the latest version of WordPress.
We are experiencing the same issue where when we try to save a new repeater, all the field disappear on the first save, then we have to do it again for them to show.
The in our option page, the repeater data are not saving, it looks like there is something going on with the latest version of the plugin. I am also using Version 5.8.9 of ACF PRO and the latest version of WordPress.
Any ideas ?
@luca_lbh the symptoms in your OP indicate to me that you have duplicated field names. This is the only thing that I know of that can cause updating one field to affect another field. It does not matter if they are in different field groups. All fields on the same post editor must have unique names.
I think I found the problem, is there a sort of limit for the number of custom fields supported by each section?
I just noticed that clicking update is passing all the fields contained in options, I removed some of the ones I added previously and it seems it’s working again.
There is a plugin for that, hasn’t been updated in a while, but it really does not need to be updated and it works fine https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-max-submit-protect/
