Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) The original WordPress 'Custom fields' tab


The original WordPress 'Custom fields' tab

  • I want to change some custom WooCommerce checkout fields (created by a checkout plugin) and these are stored as original WordPress custom fields.

    But because I have installed the ACF plugin the original Custom Fields tab is gone.

    I tried to add this to my function.php without any result:

    add_filter('acf/settings/remove_wp_meta_box', '__return_false');

    What can I do to get the original WordPress ‘Custom fields’ tab back?

  • Anyone?

    I also tried to give it a priority like this:

    add_filter('acf/settings/remove_wp_meta_box', '__return_false', 20);

    But that also did not work 🙁

  • This also does not work:

    function my_acf_init() {
        acf_update_setting('remove_wp_meta_box', false);
    add_action('acf/init', 'my_acf_init');
  • Your first example should be working. Is it possible that there is another plugin also removing it? Or maybe there are multiple filters?
