the_field empty on newly created posts

  • I first created all the fields, and published some articles and everything is showing up nicely.

    I than removed some custom fields, and created a new post. but it seems that one field in particular which was an image field did not want to show on the new posts.

    Is there a know bug?

    What i have done to resolve it as im still in development stage of the site im working on is to create a new field and re-attach all images. And it now works on existing posts and newly created ones.

    Also is there a way to clean up the database on these removals of non existing fields?

    Many thanks for your help

    I thought it would have been a common experience that you have noticed. Thanks for your help.

    Do you have a response towards the second question, if the fields that have been removed, if they could be cleaned up in the database?

    Because in the post meta i can not find a pattern to easily search for the fields. As i don’t remember the exact field names anymore.

    Anyway thx, have a good weekend.

  • Hi guys

    To answer @edesignerz question, you need to provide the get_field function with the correct $post_id parameter to load data form a taxonomy term.

    You can all about this here:
