So i have a custom field section progress.
there are 6 groups with button groups.
The first 5, are completed but when i create group 6 and add fields to it then it wont save it anymore. You cannot even assign it anymore to a posttype. even when it says that it is updated, it isnt.
i made a export from the custom fields.
I use the latest version of AIO
It is possible that the issue happens due to the limitation of PHP settings. Please follow this article to know how to resolve it https://metabox.io/wordpress-custom-fields-not-saving-increase-max-input-vars/.
would never have found this without your answer! really thank you!!
Also if someone has the same issue, with direct admin you can find it here:
Select PHP version -> Options -> max_input_vars
You can find the Select PHP version under the advanced Features
What if this method does not solve the problem?
I did everything as it was described, but still cannot save the values.
Thanks for your help.
Can you please export your field group to a JSON file and share it here? I will import it to my demo site to see if it works.
Sure, thank you! Here it goes:
I see the option "Save field value" is not enabled so the field value will not be saved. Please enable this option for all fields and check the issue again.
Please read more on the documentation https://docs.metabox.io/field-settings/
Thanks, I did that earlier. It worked for a couple of minutes. Then it broke my entire development server because the main MariaDB (server) could not handle, these tables. So 35 of my websites, and a half year of development projects went straight to the trash. Now we are working for hours to restore the server.
The main takeaway, use Meta Box ONLY in docker containers. Separately from any other projects.
A little update. We could not restore our server, so we had to reinstall it. All data was lost.
The field group exported indicates that you are using the default table (wp_postmeta) of WordPress. I don't know how your DB engine cannot work with the default table of WordPress, even with a custom table and broken down.
There are many plugins that use the default table of WordPress to store the post meta or create other custom tables to store its data like WooCommerce.
I'm not sure how you design your server to work but I think it's not a Meta Box issue itself.
This is with another client's site as well. It worked until today (for 1 and a half years now, and nothing changed except Meta Box Updates).
You can try to deactivate all plugins except Meta Box, MB extensions and switch to a standard theme of WordPress, or create a new field group and save field value in a new custom table and check this issue again.
Let me know how it goes.
I have tried, to deactivate everything except Meta Box.
It still won't work.
