Advanced Custom Fields
BUG: Cannot insert Featured Images anymore (7 posts)

    After updated to the latest version of WordPress, the built-in Featured Images setting broke. The image appears in the admin in the Featured Image box, then after saving/updating the page, it disappears.

    I can only add a Featured Image to a page or post if I disable Adv. Custom Fields - then after the Featured Image is added and the page or post is updated to save it, then I can re-activate Advanced Custom Fields.

    Hi Malawimama, are you maybe also using the Custom Post Widget plugin? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-post-widget/

    Yes, I often use both plugins. Perhaps there is a conflict? I'm still able to add Featured Images with Custom Post Widget active, but there are editor issues when I have Custom Post widget active. Basically, both have been causing problems.

    I have the same issue on a new website. It happens when only Advanced custom forms and the plugin "Related" is activated.

    I had the same issue, but now only have it with ACF. It is affecting WPML too. I can't text info from English to Spanish when ACF is activated.

    Is there a fix?

    I should clarify that last sentence. WPML has buttons to copy text from one language to another along with the featured image. It doesn't work with ACF activated.

    The conflict with the related plugin is solved for me by changing the related plugin as the post on:
