    Hi, we have a template that uses Advanced Custom Fields. I recently renamed the fields and the template does not show those new field names. It still shows the old field names. We can get new ones by creating a new site, but this isn’t ideal. Could you please make this plugin update field names somehow?

  • You can manually enter any custom field name you need. The list of field names that are shown in the dropdown are simply the meta keys that exist in the database. If you have not saved any content to those new ACF fields, it will not show in that list.

    But, as I mentioned, you can manually enter any custom field name. Here’s a gif to demonstrate: http://b.ustin.co/ATWKoS

    Alright, manually entering the field names worked. I think the issue may be that we add the custom fields using PHP embedded in our plugin. Thanks for your help!

    Great! Let me know if I can mark this thread as resolved, thank you.

    I forgot to flag it so I’m doing that now.

    Ok, just didn’t want to mark it resolved if it wasn’t yet. Thanks!
