Support » Plugin: Advanced Custom Fields - Location Field add-on » Map in admin of custom post not showing

  • I have a few different custom post types that I use in my theme. I have tested the map as custom field in the custom post types that gets added with a plugin that I use for core functionalities, and it works fine. From admin, adding the location to displaying it on the web page.
    But when I try to use the map as a custom field in a custom post that I’ve registered in a different plugin, it shows in the admin area to add the post, but the default map is not showing there. Thus when I add a location, its not looking for a location and nothing shows. On the website’s page it displays just a default map. Which means the issue is probably not with displaying the map, since it has been working fine in the other custom post types I’ve tested it with. But more the custom field working in the admin of that custom post type.
    Have you seen this happen before? Any ideas to what could cause this?

    Very unlikely that anyone might be doing the same as I did, but I realised why the above mentioned was happening. Just incase…
    I added a script to functions.php to do a character count when adding an excerpt. The custom post types that was without the support for an excerpt broke in the admin. By adding support for excerpt too in all the registered custom post types sorted the issue.



    I have sort of the same issue… I’ve registered my CPTs manually and there is no google map showing up in my post edit?

    When you register you CPT – make sure the support is for everything or what is necessary for it to show, eg.:

    'supports' => array( 'title', 'editor', 'author', 'thumbnail', 'excerpt', 'comments' )
