Support » Plugin: ACF Repeater & Flexible Content Collapser » Doesn’t seem to work with ACF 5.7

  • Resolved jeppeskovsgaard


    I can see the settings when editing a custom field, but the collapse button is not showing up while editing a page.

    I can see this hasn’t been updated for a major ACF 5.7 update. Can you confirm if it’s bugged or on my part?

    It does appear to work on non-nested repeater and flexible content fields, but not nested fields.

    Unfortunately, I can not confirm the error. I checked the plugin in non-nested and nested repeater and flexible content fields and everything works as expected.

    Are you getting any errors on the web inspector that can help to solve the problem?

    Unfortunately no errors in console.

    I’ve just made a short video for you showing the missing buttons on my framework theme:

    This is a “page builder” i’ve built in ACF. It consists of the first flexible content field, acting as a “row”, and a second nested flexible content field acting as the content area.

    Sorry for the Danish language.

    Your plugin is installed and active.

    I have no other plugins or js that interfere with the UI. The styling of the nested flexible content fields you see is just css.

    These are the ACF plugins I have installed:

    You can download my page builder acf-json file here:

    Then you can add/sync it yourself and see if it works for you.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have an idea what causes this issue: You probably created the field group before activating the plugin, which means that the settings for the plugin are not stored in the field group.

    This should solve your problem:
    Please change on of the settings that are added through the plugin for the repeater and flexible content fields, save the field group. After that, set the settings back to the ones you prefer and save the field group again.

    After that, the settings are saved in the field group and the collapse buttons should be visible.

    Please let me know if this works for you.


    Aha! That was it. 😀

    Thanks a lot!

    I have given you a 5-star review and translated your plugin to Danish. 🙂

    Sorry, doesn’t work for me.. 🙁
    WP version 4.9.8
    ACF version 5.7.6
    ACF Repeater & Flexible Content Collapser version 1.2.1

    Even if I add a new field group from scratch, I don’t get any ‘Repeater‘ type of field in the dropdownlist of types.

    There is no ‘Repeater’ type of field. This plugin works on standard ACF Repeater and/or Flexible Content fields and add a button on the post/page editor site to collapse all repeaters/flex contents.

    OK, thanks for your reply,
    Unfortunatly I don’t use the PRO version of ACF plugin, I suppose it’s the reason why I don’t see any Repeater field.
