Custom Field Revisions
Preview does not work as expected (2 posts)

    I had hoped this plugin would be perfect for allowing me to use Advanced Custom Fields and still have the "Preview" option, but I can't get that to work.

    I've tried stripping down a WordPress installation to just this:

    - WordPress 3.4.1
    - Twenty Twelve theme
    - Custom Field Revisions

    I set up Custom Field Revisions by telling it to include 2 custom fields - 'test' and 'test2'.

    I then edited the theme to output the 2 custom fields - 'test' and 'test2' - on the single pot page. I made a post, added those custom fields and published it - all working.

    I then went and changed the text in those custom fields, and clicked Preview - no difference. It's still showing the old values.

    This is the simplest way it should work, I had no other plugins installed and had not yet used ACF and yet it was not working. Is there a problem with the plugin?

    Hi! Sorry for the long wait! I guess life came in between. :) Thank you for trying out my plugin.

    If i am correct the problem seems to be that ACF has implemented revisions-support (which doesn't work at least for me). I tried it with simple fields and everything seems to work as expected. If the problem is with ACF i hope they will fix their implementation soon (i am also using ACF). Perhaps we could send in a feature request for a on/off setting for their implementation. :D

    I will hopefully have some time soon to make this plugin work with ACF again (if at all possible).
