This I noticed this error while testing ACF Version 5.7.7 in Desktop Server running 5.0-RC3-43966…
A field group “Zest” shows up in the post’s block editor dashboard even though the post is not assigned to the required category. (see attached, screenshots)
Install ACF 5.7.7 while running WP 5.0 RC 3.
1. Create a Field Group with a required category
2. Create a post but don’t assign the category.
The Field group will still display although the category is not selected.
Hi Joseph, yes, I also have the same issue and the reason is that v5.7.7 is not fully compatible with Gutenberg. The upcoming version (v5.8.0) does fix that but it’s still in beta3. WP 5.0 will be released tomorrow (Dec 6) so let’s hope ACF 5.8.0 will follow suit.
btw, I just tested the v5.7.6 and the “show field group” works fine. I guess the bug is within the v5.7.7. At this point, since we don’t know when the v5.8 will be released, the best solution will be to downgrade.
