Hi there,
I've installed ithemes exchange and I'm seeing an issue with ACF fields. I've got a set of metaboxes setup that apply to exchange products. Clicking on the tab for any acf field groups causes a spinning circle and nothing happens. Screenshot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ay4zwlnf3aw63ix/Screenshot%202014-04-30%2002.18.30.png

I'm running the latest stable versions of exchange and ACF. Has this been reported before? How might I work through this?

Hi Alex,

I haven't had this reported before and I don't know of any workarounds.

I can report this to the developers, but ACF isn't an iThemes plugin.  While we do our best to make Exchange compatible, we can't guarantee compatibility with every plugin.  So I'll let them know about this one, but I don't have a timeline for if/when this would be available.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks,

Elise

Hello Elise,
I was able to resolve this.

The issue appears to be that an Exchagne product pulls in ALL ACF Field groups. The spinner will appear when you click on a Field Group that isn't specifically assigned to the Current Exchange Product you're reviewing. However, if you do assign the ACF group to the Exchange product, the normal metaboxes DO show up. My expectation here is that only ACF field groups assigned to an Exchange Product would show up. All other field groups wouldn't show at all.

I hope that helps out some.

I'm experiencing the same issue.
Alex, could you elaborate on your fix? I'm a little confused.
