- Advanced Custom Fields Pro Update
ACF Pro has another update due: 5.3.1. I have been unable to update it on my site. After a few emails with their support I found that FirmaSite Base has a developer license for this plugin and so the developer needs to bundle the update for the users of that theme. The FirmaSite Base users cannot successfully update ACF Pro on their own.
I’m not sure what it involves. I only can tell you that ACFPRO has needed an update for about two weeks. I couldn’t get it to update so I asked their support for help. They just informed me of this and I was relaying that to you.If you don’t think it is important then it can wait.

Any luck with this update? It’s been 6 months since it has needed updating. Since this is the Pro version that needs updating, I was wondering if I could install the regular version, would it work similarly? Or does FirmaSite Base need the Pro version to function properly?
Is there any hope this will be updated? It’s been a long time with an plug needing an update on my site. I can don’t know when this will cause a conflict creating problems for the site.
Thank you Matoca
If we update to latest version before changing some things in theme, it wont work as we want. While updates are necessary, working as expected is more important. This doesnt mean it will always like this. For some different reasons, theme updates got delayed but i hope there will be soon changes will come.
Thank you, that’s what I needed to know. I was about to purchase my own license to update the plugin. So, if I understand correctly, this wouldn’t work if I do this, it must be integrated into the theme.
I really don’t know what function you have used from this plugin to support your theme, that would be your area of expertise.
I am only concerned about the error messages I get each day from Wordfence advising me that I have a critical update.
I’ve learned my lesson that plugins needing updates can crash my site abruptly. Jet pack for instance caused serious issues 2 weeks ago with a feature called Protect. I had no idea it keeps a blacklist that users cannot access. It can lock admin out of their own site.
So just checking in occasionally to see what the status of the upgrade is. You have a fantastic theme, I would not choose another.
