Yes there were some PHP errors that didn’t seem to be related directly to ACF. The fields still do not show up even after I set DEBUG to OFF.
Yes it does work with the default WordPress themes.
It is not working with Divi.
I just checked wp-config to see if debug was ON. Interestingly Debug was not defined at all.
define( ‘WP_DEBUG’, true );
define( ‘WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY’, false );
define( ‘WP_DEBUG_LOG’, true );
and then after going through the steps in the admin to use ACF I looked in the error logs and there is nothing related to ACF in there.
I’ve done that. There were probably 50-60 rows named downloads. Then there were probably at least many or more rows called _downloads. That’s a lot of rows for a handful of posts.
Anyways, after doing that, the Downloads field is still visible on our site unfortunately. Any other ideas?
I’m looking at the all the rows in this table and there are probably several dozen rows with the meta_key of “downloads” which is the name of the field I deleted. There were only about 5 posts that used this field. Am I safe in deleting ALL the rows of that meta_key? Or could they possibly be for other content in the site?
I can’t tell if any of them contain the content that was originally associated with the fields when live. Most of them have empty meta_value or have a three digit number in them.
The field used to be a file download link.
OK, logically this makes sense but unfortunately, recreating the field, deleting the content and then deleting field didn’t work. I did it twice.
I’m looking at the wp_postmeta table and can see traces of the download content, but you’re right, messing this with table does make me nervous somewhat as someone who normally doesn’t dive directly into the tables.
