Thanks for the revival! The topic says solved because of a reply on the first page but I think we need a more official way of solving for this.
If I work locally then upload the site to live or if I swap hosts it’s another thing I have to put on my checklist. For clients it’s a bigger deal because if they swap hosting after I’m out of the picture they can no longer get updates because of the license key.
Would be a great feature to have.
Thanks for the info @elliot Condon. I’ll be looking forward to the article as well.
This helps a bit. I like that they have the option to rollback. I suppose the best thing to do is try to contact my clients where I’ve used ACF (pretty much every site!) with a link to your article when it’s released. I may put the ball in their court saying I can go in and fix their site with ACF Pro or they can leave as is.
Thanks again and thanks for a great plugin.
Thanks for the info @arcanepsyche. This unfortunately is a real pain. So I have two options I suppose for sites where I’ve used ACF with a paid addon:
1. Go back through ALL the sites I’ve used paid add-ons with and update them to Pro.
2. Leave them as is and my clients never get updates.
Is this correct?
Obviously from here on out I’ll be using PRO but it’s unfortunate that to really help my past clients I’ll have to manually go in and update them to PRO. Which can be very time consuming.
Hopefully this question will prove to be helpful for others in the same boat. Which I assume is a large group.
Sorry, I don’t recall. I thought I could get something going quickly with ACF but had to scrap it all because I needed a solution that day.
I was trying to do exactly what the screenshots on this page (http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/field-types/taxonomy/) except on a taxonomy.
Perhaps I misunderstood or maybe the docs for taxonomy field can be updated.
Unrelated: I just noticed that you can’t add a link through this editor. Weird.
Thanks for the reply.
I tried the docs (http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/how-to/how-to-get-values-from-a-taxonomy-term) examples but couldn’t get it to work. I’ll work through it again when I get a chance. I tried it on a client’s site and ended up scrapping it because it wouldn’t work.
Just wanted to confirm that I’m having the same issue.
I was trying to add a field type taxonomy to a “show if field group” is taxonomy term, and the field shows up on the taxonomy page but couldn’t get it to show up in my theme. Hope that make sense.
