Wordpress shows the warning “There is a new version of Advanced Custom Fields PRO available. View version 5.7.7”
Should I go for the new version? After changing the plugin I had some issues with the site. While trying to reach the project I got ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS error. I’m not sure what was the reason (I made more changes), but I had to reset everything and start from scratch.
As for the ACF Pro plugin, you can not update it on your own because its license does not allow that — if you got a copy of the plugin, as part of a theme. You’d need to directly buy a license for ACF PRO to be able to update it, however, the changes in the latest version of the ACF PRO are really minor and don’t affect the performance of the theme in any way. So I would not say it’s worth the hassle.
Still, if you’d like to have the latest version of ACF Pro, please let me know and I’ll send it to you.
As for the redirect error, merely updating the ACF Pro plugin could not lead to a redirect error. There must have been something else. Please mind that help with code modifications/customizations is not included into support according to ThemeForest rules.
