Saving WP Custom Fields wipes out ACF repeater fields

  • I noticed that the custom fields were missing so I’ve added the following to my functions.php file
    add_filter('acf/settings/remove_wp_meta_box', '__return_false');

    The custom fields came back for the page I was working on, when I save the wp custom fields the ACF repeater fields all got wiped.

    Is there a conflict from using ACF and the default WP custom fields together?
    Would I need to move all the previous custom fields to ACF?

  • The only conflict that could cause this is using a “meta_key” that matches an existing ACF field name (which is the meta_key value) on the same post.
