I create user field with Type. Now I can not delete that field.
If I try to make some changes (see image) nothing happend ...
The error message sais "Gerd, let it be. You are to ld for that"
Just kidding ...
Types allows you to delete field's definition but it does not delete any meta data attached with the post, this may be a little confusing.
However, may I ask for the Types version you're using? This can help me identifying the issue. I will encourage you to try the latest version available, if you haven't upgraded yet. Please remember to take back up of your data before proceeding.
I use Version 1.6.2.
"Types allows you to delete field's definition but it does not delete any meta data attached with the post, this may be a little confusing."
Than I do not understand, why there is a pssibility to delete in the dropdown!?
My second question: "Something else: How can I export a userfield-group and import some where else?"
How can I export an userfield-group!
Pardon me for such a confusion, let me explain this in some detail here.
You can delete custom fields and groups easily, as you see, using Types. But it doesn't delete "post meta" attached with a particular post. A custom field is also considered a kind of meta data for a post. Upon deletion of a custom field/group, Types retains (or keeps) the "values" and some settings in the database, for that particular field/group. Apparently this unlinks or detaches the field definition from the post. The data isn't deleted, so it can be utilized later, such as if you create the same field again and attach it with that particular post.
This is how Types works around deleting fields and groups.
For your other question, you can "export" everything from Types (Types -> Import/Export), including User Fields and Groups. This exports "everything" created with Types, in a .zip file.
To "import" this on another location, you will need Types plugin installed and activated. Types is a free plugin, you can use it anywhere you want. On that target location, under Types you can find Import/Export page. By importing the previously exported .zip file, Types let you choose, what you want to import - please see "Types-Import.png" attached.
I hope this clarifies your queries. Please let me know if I can help you with anything related.
The option is to detach the group/field from posts, so these are no longer available to create overheads for new posts created. The meta data is only maintained with the posts where these have been used.
Please let me know if I can help you with anything related.
I am completly confused!
When I search my field (Image 01) page by page, I get the right result.
If I search using the search field (image 02) I get another result.
Another thing: When I uncheck (img 03) in user backend the box rest aktivated after saving.
There's a new release for Types this week, please try updating the plugin if it resolves the issue.
If problem persists, I will request an access to your website, for a details insight. It would be great if you also provide the URLs to the pages where this problem occurs.
I have enabled private details box for this purpose. Please input any sensitive information in there. If somehow, giving access isn't possible, please provide detailed steps on how I can recreate the same issue in my localhost.
