Advanced Custom Fields
New custom fields not displaying (33 posts)

    After setting up new custom fields, they are not displaying in the ACF settings or on the page/post editors. But the list of all custom field groups shows the correct number of custom fields in each group.

    My old custom fields are still showing. Just the new ones are not displaying.

    Exactly the same problem here when I updated to 3.5.4.1
    Newly added fields are not displaying.
    Same problem when I updated from another wordpress setup too.

    Hi guys,

    So when you add new fields to a field group and update the field group, the fields are not being saved?

    Hi Elliot, thanks for the reply.
    Yes exactly.
    However in the previous page "Field Groups" the field number indicator for each group is correct IF the fields are 3 or less.
    Same issue if you create a new group and then add a field.
    When you click publish/update the field disappears from the "field order".
    (I am in localhost)

    I haven't looked in the db to see if they are saving. I think they might be. I noticed the correct number was showing up in the field groups setting page, but the custom fields were not displaying on the post editor and not showing up individual field group editors. It could be what Miltos-S is saying about the 3 or less, too.

    I reverted back to the previous version without any issues.

    Ok... problem solved!
    This is not an ACF issue.
    In my case it was the php tags in my functions.php
    If you have space before or after the tags probably this causes the problem.

    I'll have to check all my code, but my functions.php is not the issue.

    Hi Elliot.

    I have this same issue on a fresh install of 3.5.4.1.

    Did you get a chance to look at an installation? If not I'll pop you over some account details.

    Hi guys,

    I'm getting the same issue with 3.5.4.1. Where can I download a past release to roll back to?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    After cleaning up my functions.php the issue was solved for me.
    To figure out if the problem was in my theme I did 2 things.
    First I deactivated my theme and activated the twenty eleven theme. The problem was gone.
    Second I reactivated my theme and temporarily emptied my functions file. The problem was gone again.
    Some ideas that you may have already tried:
    If you have multiple php tags in the functions try to eliminate them by having only one opening tag at the beginning and a closing at the end.
    If you have other php files included in the functions check them too.

    The only thing I wonder is why the previous version was working fine even without doing anything of the above...
    Anyway maybe it was a chance to clean up my code a bit...!

    I have the same issue with v3.5.4.1 and WordPress 3.5. The data are saved in the database but they are not visible in the "Edit Field Group".

    Field Groups I have created are visible and the number their fields in the right side. But when I click on the Field Group then I get "No fields. Click the + Add Field button to create your first field."

    Let me know if you want to provide you more information.

    I'm having this issue too - I've applied a new ACF group to a custom post type, but it doesn't show up when I go to create/edit an instance of that post type. If I pull down the 'Screen options' tab at the top of the admin page, and toggle my ACF group off then on, the field then appears.

    same problem here. I have no plugin conflict, but the latest release 3.5.8.1 seems to not work with the latest version of WordPress 3.5.1.

    I also had this issue. I resolved it by changing my theme back to twenty eleven and then reactivating my desired theme.

    Hope this helps others.

    Is there already a solution in sight for this problem people? I have the same issue here. Tried changing theme, no effect, checked my files but could not find anything related to php tags, white spaces or anything. Had to revert back to previous version to solve the problem.

    I'm having the same problem but I think it has to do with the pagination. I have 23 groups but only 20 are showing and the pagination is not showing up. When I manually force the pagination by adding &paged=2 into the URL bar I do not see the other 3 groups.

    ------

    Update: I thought I was on the most recent version but I was not. Upon updating this issue was fixed.

    I had same problem, and resolved.

    In my case, this problem happens if a custom post type named "post_type" is exists.
    So it works by using other name.
