Support » Plugin: PDF Image Generator » Conflict with Advanced Custom Fields

  • Resolved slinkywitch


    I have a site with a LOT of pdfs (well over 1000) and they are all organized using metadata added through advanced custom fields on the edit page of each attachment. I *love* your plugin, but unfortunately, the metadata fields created by ACF on the edit attachment page don’t appear when your plugin is activated. Is there anything I can do to resolve this conflict?

    I tested with Advanced Custom Fields 4.4.9 and PDF image generator 1.4.8, but I found nothing strange.

    Can you give me more details?
    Also, if you have error logs, it may help to resolve this issue.

    Thank you.

    Sorry about taking a long time to reply.

    Okay, so this is with ACF Pro – Version 5.4.8 and PDF Image Generator Version 1.4.8. There should be about 25 different fields added to each media attachment page. But when I have both PDF Image Generator and ACF turned on, none of these fields are viewable. There are no errors per se, just the ACF fields don’t appear.

    In fact, looking at the debug bar there are no errors on the page at all when this happens. I’ve looked and it’s not a problem with screen options, and it only happens on the media attachment pages not on all the other pages with extra custom fields. and it works again when I turn off your plugin.

    I absolutely *love* your plugin – it has all the features I need and makes everything so easy for my users (a group of old women who are not tech savvy at all!) – but we absolutely need this to be working in order to use the plugin. I’m not sure how to give you any more information!

    I figured out what was wrong and fixed it. Now, there is no Conflict.

    Please update to PDF IMAGE GENERATOR 1.4.9.
