Polylang, Meta Box and Magic Fields Compatibility (3 posts)

    Polylang Version: 1.0.4
    Magic Fields Version: 2.1
    Metabox (Rilwis) Version: 4.2.4
    Static Front Page: Yes
    Permalink Settings: Post Name (/%postname%/)

    Hi there

    I am having an issue with saving content augmented by both Magic Fields and Meta Box. I have three languages on the site (English, French, German) and it is a tour operator site. On the Tours content type, I have repeatable meta fields (Magic Fields) to place multiple itinerary items for each tour. I did this for all the French translations and then when I proceeded to do the equivalent for the German tours, all the itinerary information I had saved into all of the French content items vanished (from the post meta table as well). It appears that saving a post with this meta information is somehow confusing the system and is overwriting and previous work I have done.

    A similar thing is happening with blocks I have integrated into the site with Meta Box. I will select French boxes for the French Page I am working on, but when I try to create the German equivalent and save it, I notice that the French page boxes are all set to the German boxes.

    The fact that this is happening independently with two separate plugins suggests that the issue might be with Polylang.

    Another note: I recently updated the Polylang plugin from version 1.0.2 to 1.0.4. The content for the different languages was working perfectly before I upgraded the plugin. This issue has only come up since I upgraded.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Can you go in Polylang settings and de-activate the synchronization for custom fields?

    Ah, that seems to make sense. Thanks, I have now disabled synchronization and will test it out. Thanks for the response.
