    should't be allowed to see my acf metaboxes on a custom type as a custom user? or is it set by default to only display for admins? , i'm using adminimize and members plugins and I tried by turning em off on my wordpress but no result

    Hi ParadiseCircus,

    Hey elliot,

    yea I manage to figure out what was causing my problem, I set a custom function to only display "own" posts for user when they wanted to edit them, here's my function...

    function posts_for_current_author($query) {
    		global $user_level;
    		if($query->is_admin && $user_level < 5) {
    			global $user_ID;
    			$query->set('author',  $user_ID);
    		return $query;
    	add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'posts_for_current_author');

    I'm trying to figure out why this function is causing this problem...
