Unmaintened plugin, not working with recent versions of ACF, Huge amount of bugs (WYSIWYG and IMAGE fields not working at all), completely break native ACF fields. This error was reported but no update since 10 month… It seem this plugin is abandoned and unusuable anymore

latest version of ACF pro ( 5.6 ) created a new issue on acf qtranslate code. Thanks to the comunity the developer managed to push in 5 days a new version that fix it… that’s how open source should work every time….

Hello, I have installed latest wordpress with these three plugins: 1. qTranslate-X 2. Advanced Custom Fields 3. Advanced Custom Fields: qTranslate Now, I have created a custom field(text) showing on default page template. So, when I am putting content for one language and save it, it is working fine. But when I click on the second language tab, the text I put for previous language in that field is showing same. Means on changing tab, this custom field is not behaving like default title and content fields of page. Thanks, Sunil Chaudhary
