I am exited to announce that today, I will release a new version of the Advanced Custom Fields WordPress plugin. I’ve been taking in all your feedback and ideas on the support forum and I hope you like the updates I’ve added in v2.0.2.
So whats news? Well, you can see above that I have re designed the location meta box to allow for custom location queries. This will allow you to add your ACF group to an edit screen with more ease and not need that “Override” option (which is now gone).
The full change log
- Added new database table “acf_rules”
- Removed database table “ac_options”
- Updated location meta box to now allow for custom location queries
- Hid Activation Code from logged in users
- Fixed JS bugs with wp v3.2 beta 2
- Added new option “Field group layout” – you can now wrap your fields in a metabox!
- General housekeeping
Is it safe to update with all this new database stuff?????
The update.php script will copy your old location data and re write it into the new format, but I can’t guarantee that it will work for 100% of all cases.
The best proccess is to backup your database, update the pluginn and then go through each acf to make sure all the options look good.
FYI – before uploading the new plugin to the SVN, I uploaded it to my plugins.elliotcondon.com website. The update went fine but I did have to add some new location rules as the “Override” option is now gone.
Aaah I found a bug!!
Don’t panic, jump over to the support forum and post it right away so I can empty a can of mortein on it.
