I have quite a few repeater fields, and in them I have a few post object fields and an additional repeater field. Overall, a pretty nested situation.
The primary repeater field has always been set on on Row view with no issues. Only recently did I receive a memory_limit error which has so far been fixed by increasing my PHP memory_limit. But since then, the view of the repeater field has switched to Table view. When I select to change that view to Row, I receive the “Updated successfully” alert, but the option doesn’t stick.
What might be causing this?
You are probably running into the PHP default variable limit, and you need to increase it. Here’s an explanation: http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/faq/limit-number-fields/
