Strange WP-Admin Category Behaviour

  • Hi there,

    I’ve noticed some strange WP-Admin happenings this morning which (I think) is caused by the ACF Pro plugin (v5.2.0).

    When I click a category in the backend in the post editor it hides the category box, I then re-enable the box via ‘screen options’, if I click it again it hides the box again and so on…

    I deactivated all of my plugins, then enabled them one by one. As soon as I deactivated ACF Pro it stopped doing this, when enabled it started again.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  • I’m having the same issue as well. Had to go back to version 4.4 where this does not occur.

    Any ideas?

  • same problem here

  • Had the same issue after upgrading to 5.2

    Rolling back to or 5.1.9 fixed the issue.

  • Hi guys

    I’ve just released v5.2.1 to fix this issue

    Sorry for the frustrating bug


  • Thanks Elliot, just updated & it’s fixed.
