Support » Plugin: Custom Fields for Gutenberg » Bug: Prevents Saving Page Template Change and Custom Fields

  • Resolved Dustin W. Stout


    From the start of using this plugin I noticed that updating a custom field and then saving the page seldom worked. Now I’ve noticed that when I try to change the page template of a page and update it from the editor interface, the change doesn’t save. However, if I use Quick Edit to change the page template, it saves just fine.

    I would REALLY love to see a slimmed-down, working version of this plugin that mimics the exact functionality of the “Show Hidden Post Meta” plugin by Phillip Newcomer. It would be SO helpful.

    Thanks for the infos Dustin. Actually this plugin is not needed for awhile, as WP 5.0 natively supports custom fields (thru at least 2021). So my best advice would be to disable the plugin and just use the built-in CF panel.

    @specialk I read that you said that in another support thread, but I don’t see that to be true in my own WordPress installs. If you mean Advanced Custom Fields, then yes, I’ve never had a problem seeing those. It’s the “protected” and “hidden” custom fields that I need to view, and can’t be seen without this plugin (and in the classic editor, Phillip Newcomer’s _Show Hidden Post Meta_ plugin).

    Ah, yes I suppose this plugin remains useful for that purpose. I will take a closer look for the next update and also check out the Show Hidden Post Meta plugin.
