Upgrading ACF to WP issues with location rules and repeater field

    Hey,

    I’ve got a problem and an unclear if it has to do with ACF or WP and how to troubleshoot this. I’m upgrading an old WP 3.7 site through to WP 4.6 at the moment from last v3 of ACF to last v4 of ACF everything seems to be fine except for there being some issue with the location rules and repeater fields and I’m not even sure how to articulate what is going on.

    I can’t seem to add a row with pre-existing repeater fields, I can add the row and enter text but when I click update it is blank. Pre-existing content is still present. If I got to the field itself, I can see that the location rules are gone, and if I try to add a location rule it is the same thing where it won’t save. If I try to update the field itself, it disappears on the front-end.

    I intend to update to v5 of ACF and WP but would feel more comfortable getting this sorted out because in testing to go up further it seems that everything disappears. Thoughts?

    Here is what shows up in the log if I try to add a location rule:

    WordPress database error Duplicate entry '0' for key 'PRIMARY' for query INSERT INTOwp_postmeta(post_id,meta_key,meta_value) VALUES (1255, 'rule', 'a:5:{s:5:\"param\";s:4:\"page\";s:8:\"operator\";s:2:\"==\";s:5:\"value\";s:3:\"468\";s:8:\"order_no\";i:0;s:8:\"group_no\";i:1;}') made by edit_post, wp_update_post, wp_insert_post, do_action('save_post'), WP_Hook->do_action, WP_Hook->apply_filters, call_user_func_array, acf_field_group->save_post, add_post_meta, add_metadata

    Here is what shows up in the log if I try to add a row on one of the page fields:

    WordPress database error Duplicate entry '0' for key 'PRIMARY' for query INSERT INTOwp_postmeta(post_id,meta_key,meta_value) VALUES (470, '_download-module-repeater_1_link', 'field_149') made by edit_post, wp_update_post, wp_insert_post, do_action('save_post'), WP_Hook->do_action, WP_Hook->apply_filters, call_user_func_array, acf_controller_post->save_post, do_action('acf/save_post'), WP_Hook->do_action, WP_Hook->apply_filters, call_user_func_array, acf->save_post, do_action('acf/update_value'), WP_Hook->do_action, WP_Hook->apply_filters, call_user_func_array, acf_field_functions->update_value, apply_filters('acf/update_value/type=repeater'), WP_Hook->apply_filters, call_user_func_array, acf_field_repeater->update_value, do_action('acf/update_value'), WP_Hook->do_action, WP_Hook->apply_filters, call_user_func_array, acf_field_functions->update_value, update_metadata, add_metadata
