Since the upgrade to WP 5.0, for one of the site I developed, when ACF is active on a page, the “update/publish” button has no effect. I can see the POST /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php with 200 OK, but nothing happens.
What I did to isolate the problem:
– if I’m using a page template which is not using ACF -> publish/update works
– I installed “health check” and the publish/update works until I activate ACF
Any one got the same issue ? Any idea how to debug this ?
I do not see this error. But the issue could be related to ACF 5.7.8 update and not WP 5.0.
According to the Changelog:
* Fix – Fixed all metaboxes appearing when editing a post in WP 5.0.
Wondering if this could be related. As soon as I’ve got time I will try to reproduce the issue between 5.7.7 and 5.7.8.
So, this is definitely an issue with ACF 5.7.8. I will not perform update on other installations.
I will post an issue on the github of ACF. In general, do you know if they react quickly ?
For the downgrade, I suppose this is only possible if there was no change in the database structure. And to do so, you simply replace the files in wp-content/plugins/advanced-custom-fields-pro ?
Same problem. This is my setup
NO Classic Editor installed
ACF PRO 5.7.8
Custom post type WITH ACF PRO repeater field box
the problem occurs only in post types where there is the repeater field
if I downgrade to ACF PRO 5.7.7 everything works normally
Well, we can discuss and argue that for hours. I marked this topic as solved as this is a workaround which works. So, if someone comes here, he can downgrade to 5.7.7 and he will be able to edit his posts again. And there is now drawback as the changelog between 5.7.7 and 5.7.8 doesn’t show lots of changes. So, you can perfectly live with version 5.7.7 and wait a few days for the version 5.7.9 to arrive, with the bugfix.
Happy to downgrade to fix this, but I’m stymied there too. I have WP Rollback installed, but it doesn’t give me the rollback option for ACF Pro. Just about all my other plugins, yup, but not this one. WP Rollback is recommended in the ACF FAQ, but it’s not working for me. Is there another plugin or another way to do it?
ACF Proo 5.7.8
Of course it is not a definitive solution. It’s a workaround. But you noticed that this forum has only the possibility to define an answer as a solution.
For someone who would read this thread, he could then find that, at this stage, downgrading is the only solution to solve the problem.
The definitive solution will be to update with the next version, fixed.
