Sorry, of course!
What happened was I got an error while trying to update “update failed”
After that, ACF dissapeared from the menu.
When I looked in the structure via FTP the folder was empty.
I removed the folder and then reinstalled ACF -> and got it working.
It only happened once though. I’ve successfully updated two other installation. One with English language and one with Swedish.
I’m having a similar issue, under 4.1.6 on our development server everything is working fine, however on 4.1.8 on our production server, we’re having issues with custom options on our page specific options.
I have the repeater plugin, and the options page plugin installed as well.
We’ve downgraded our production server to 4.1.6 and the issue is still occurring. Can someone tell me if there was a database change or something between 4.1.6 and 4.1.8, and also if simply replacing the plugin files with those of an older version would essentially ‘downgrade’ us fully – at least that would rule out if this is a plugin issue or something else with our theme.
Updating it seems to have completely bricked my ability to use ACF. I get a 500 server error – plugins/advanced-custom-fields/js/input.php?ver=4.1.8
— not a very useful error.
Then 2 more errors immediately after that saying
ReferenceError: acf is not defined
acf.post_id = 211;
I deleted the plugin and reuploaded 4.1.6 and I still get the same error. Any ideas? On my local environment 4.1.6 works perfectly and I have not updated the plugin.
Let me know what other information I can provide to help
Sounds like you have a .htaccess file or server permissions issue that is preventing ACF from reading in the .php file as a .js file.
I have written an article about this very issue here:
Hope this gives you some insight
