Custompress field values disappearing

It seems that if I change anything about the custom fields, eg assigning them to more post types, the values completely disappear from existing posts. I’ve had this several times now after making various changes, which makes me very nervous.

I’m using the Thesis theme, which otherwise works perfectly with it. I notice there’s a similar post a year ago (

    Hey there.

    I’ve just been testing this and I was not able to reproduce the issue you describe.

    Does it disappear from all posts with existing data? Just some?

    To confirm I understood.

    Admin –> Network Admin (if applicable) –> CustomPress –> Custom Fields

    Add a field, I made mine for posts.

    I then made a new post and entered data.

    I then went back to CustomPress edited that custom field, changed it to page, saved and then changed it back again. No affect.

    I then assigned it to multiple post types and still it worked ok.

    Is this similar to what you are doing, or did I misunderstand?

    If so can you please clarify the exact process to reproduce this.
