We will soon be releasing ACFML 1.8.0, which contains significant usability improvements for translating Advanced Custom Fields. First, we need your help testing these changes in the beta!

What’s in this release?

Say goodbye to fields not saving or displaying the correct translations on the front-end! For this release, we focused on fixing several issues where this was the case.

You can now set field groups to be Translatable without any issues, which makes translating these field groups far more straightforward.

With ACFML 1.8 beta 3, you can also do the following:

  • Shuffle repeater fields without having to update translations.
  • Easily apply translation preferences to fields in ACF Gutenberg Blocks.
  • No longer have issues related to WPML not recognizing an active ACF plugin or ACF in the theme and other plugins library.

A full list of included features and fixes is available in our changelog.

    • Hello – if you are using WordPress 5.5 or later, you do not. WPML can recognize you are uploading an update of an existing plugin, and it is not necessary to deactivate and delete WPML.
