I have two different forms for front end submission which are editing the custom fields for the post they are shown in. Both used to work fine but now one is not working. The shortcode that works is this;
[mb_frontend_form id='beach-field' post_fields='title' post_id='current']
The one that is failing is this. I also tried turning on edit= true and this made no impact.
[mb_frontend_form id='beach-photo-basic' post_fields='title' post_id ='current']
Debug.log shows nothing and I have turned off all plugins to see if the issue still persists and it does. The metabox plugin is also updated. Not sure what else to do to try and fix the issue.
In terms of the actual issue I can modify the title through the front end and it updates fine. It's only the custom fields that do not get populated. If I update the custom fields from the back end the front end displays the updated values.
Please share your site credentials via this contact form https://metabox.io/contact/, I will take a closer look. Thanks.
If I'm allowed to post it here instead of in a new one.
The same is happening with me too!
There were no changes in the way how I create or key in the shortcodes for the Front End Submission.
Then, I used a Backup from June.
I deactivated again all Plugins.
But...... before I updated Metabox from 5.6.4 to 5.6.5 it worked, after I only did the Update the Front End Submission wasn't saving any custom fields.
So there might be a Bug in the Update?
I can give you access to my Staging Site
Please share the staging site credentials and some screenshots of the issue via the contact form. I will take a closer look.
Same once I did the latest updates... had to revert to backup because it is a production site. The data will not save when more than 1 metabox is linked to the same table.
I have just shared my site details so hopefully, you can take a look Long. Let me know if you have any issues with access ect.
Some ways that I am working that might be related to the issue
• I am storing the information in a custom table.
• I have two different field groups attached to the same custom table (‘beach photo basic’ and ‘beach photo advanced’)
•I am using oxygen builder on my site. But I did manage to recreate the issue without Oxygen turned on
Jermey post was right about what is causing the issue. I have just run a test on my website and I managed to recreate the issue.
Jacob, I think this was a pretty major bug in the last release. Based on the user, I need to show some fields and not others from the same page view. The only way to do this is to create the form different ways. It had always worked well until this update and it took me forever to figure out. Hopefully they will have a release soon to fix this.
I've tried to reproduce the issue on my demo site but did not see that. I have two field groups saved field value to one custom table. The field group is assigned to a CPT (job) and the frontend form display them on the frontend. Please check this screen record https://monosnap.com/file/seiz493QlKhv6JtQKgoc60MLPIdJYT
Thanks for the latest Update. Now everything is saving and working like expected =)
Which means the Forms Data are now saved again on the Custom Tables =)
thanks a lot =)
