Since 5.1.9 (I think), ACF fields are not displaying unless ticked in “Screen Options.” Is this a bug or new feature?
It feels like like a bug when fields are suddenly hidden in WP admin, and extra steps are required to get them to display the way they always have.
Fingers are crossed that it’s a bug that will be wiped out in a blink.
I also believe there is a bug with the latest PRO v5.2.0. Besides hiding its own meta boxes, it’s also hiding the meta boxes from other plugins. In my case, it was hiding the Events Organizer meta boxes(event details). I had to keep going to the “Screen Options” to show the events meta boxes again. I went back to v18.104.22.168 and fixed the problem. I hope that is fixed in the next release as I hate to keep using outdated plugins.
If it makes any difference, it appears to be that any ACF fields that are shared across multiple pages will remain shown if I visit those pages one after the other. As soon as I visit a page that doesn’t have that same ACF field as the previous and I head right back to the previous page, the field becomes hidden.
