Support » Plugin: Advanced Custom Fields » ACF overriding general wordpress custom fields

  • Hi all,

    For about a year now we have been using wordpress’ general custom fields for our Discover SK site and recently we installed Advanced Custom Fields as we wanted to use a custom field that could allow for images. By doing this it seems to have made the generic custom fields disappear so we can’t edit them on the hundreds of previous posts. Is there a way for the two to work in tandem or transfer everything from the old wodpress custom fields to ACF?

    I tried to add the code add_filter(‘acf/settings/remove_wp_meta_box’, ‘__return_false’); into functions.php but got the following error:
    Unable to communicate back with site to check for fatal errors, so the PHP change was reverted. You will need to upload your PHP file change by some other means, such as by using SFTP.

    Does anyone know how they can help with this?

    Many thanks in advance
