  • Hi All,

    This is a known issue in the Gutenberg project, but no solution has yet been announced.
    I’m sorry to report that this is not fixable from my end.

  • Hi @jnicol

    Thanks for the topic.
    This is an interesting one, and one that I don’t yet have a solution for. Hopefully the following info can help shine some light on the problem.

    To allow the ACF template functions such as get_field() to work as expected within the block callback/template, we had to “inject” the block values into the “acf/pre_load_metadata” filter. This filter is run when ACF attempts to load a meta value for any given key/object_id.

    This “injecting” behavior is overwriting/preventing your code from reading from the newly “setup postdata”.

    I’ll have a think about how we can add compatibility with this function, but am not yet sure on the solution :S

  • Hi all,

    This bug has been patched, and the ACF PRO plugin files have been re-uploaded online.
    Please manually path this fix by editing the file “includes/api/api-helpers.php” and change the acf_is_block_editor() function on line ~5051 to:

    
    /**
     * acf_is_block_editor
     *
     * Returns true if the current screen uses the block editor.
     *
     * @date	13/12/18
     * @since	5.8.0
     *
     * @param	void
     * @return	bool
     */
    function acf_is_block_editor() {
    	if( function_exists('get_current_screen') ) {
    		$screen = get_current_screen();
    		if( method_exists($screen, 'is_block_editor') ) {
    			return $screen->is_block_editor();
    		}
    	}
    	return false;
    }
    
  • Hi all

    Thanks for the bug report.
    I suspect this issue is with “front-end” forms only, and will have this patched today 🙂

  • @hodephinitely Thanks for the report. Sorry to quote myself again, but can you please open a new support ticket via the following link, and we can work together to diagnose the issue: https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/contact/

  • @palmerijosh Thanks for the reply.

    I’m confident that our object caching is working well in 5.7.12, so I suspect there is something else at play.

    I’m happy to take a look at your site and help debug the issue. Can you please open a support ticket via the following link and ask for me (Elliot): https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/contact/

    It would be great to get access to your site (or a staging site) so I can login and test the object caching / SQL queries.

  • Hi @johnstaples

    Thanks for the bug report. I’ve just tested out the “Add new” post page in WP and was not able to replicate any issues saving custom field data.

    Can you please spin up a fresh install using the “Local by flywheel” app and test out ACF on a vanilla website?
    Please let me know if you were able to replicate the issue.

  • Hi @timmy28x

    Thanks for the questions.

    1. No, the 5.8.0-beat3 has remained untouched, and does not contain any of the new functionality. I plan to release a new 5.7.12 version tomorrow to address the bugs in 5.7.11, then begin work on 5.8.0-beta4 which will get all the new updates from 5.7.x

    2. Yes, our update system will allow betas to appear in the wp-admin plugins page 🙂

    3. Good question. In theory, there should be no issues. We are not planning to make any breaking changes from the current 5.8.0-beta version. We do plan to change the way values are stored within the block JSON, but we will be sure to do this in a “backwards compatible” manor 🙂

  • Hi @curtisb

    Thanks for the honest feedback. I’m first to admit this was a buggy release.

    I would like to clarify that in no way am I trying to “hide” these bugs by asking users to re-download the plugin, this is simply a way to get those bugs fixed, and allow users to test out the fix. I am planning to release a new 5.7.12 version tomorrow which will include all the fixed bugs. I would rather release a single version to fix all bugs, than multiple versions each day.

    The Options page slashes value caught us by surprise, but luckily was one that we could fix quickly and confidently.

    I’m not sure that I am familiar with the “acf/format_value” filter issue. I’ll search around for reports on this.

    I’ll definitely reflect on this for sure.

    Thanks again.
    Elliot

    Thanks for the reply. Can you please open a support ticket via the following link so we can further investigate the issue on your site? https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/contact/

  • @dd_james Thanks for the info. This issue sounds like fields are being incorrectly cached in storage.

    Can you please open a support ticket via the following link and include a .json export + PHP code to replicate the issue?

  • Hi all,

    The issue sounds like ACF is incorrectly “re-adding” the field group metabox after a “post attribute change” is detected.

    This is possible if the field group is missing a “key” setting.
    If you are using PHP to register the field group, can you please check your PHP field group and ensure that the field group itself has a unique key?

  • My apologies for the issues in version 5.7.11.
    I am confident we have found and fixed the issue.

    Can you please re-download the ACF PRO plugin files and test the issue?

    An easy way to re-download is to edit the main acf.php plugin file and change the version number ‘5.7.11’ down to ‘5.7.10’
    – please note the version number appears twice in this file and both will need to be changed
    – after this change is made, please update the plugin as per normal and it will update to 5.7.11 (including the new fix)
