Help with Advanced Custom Fields.    I changed some Labels in the Groups.  The new Labels and new default text display correctly when creating a new Group however I am unable to understand how to update existing groups so they display the new Label and default text.

Seems that your issue with the plugin "Advanced Custom Fields" is common. Some users report that reverting back to an earlier version of WordPress, such as 3.5.3, makes new fields not updating problem go away; however, this may not be what's causing your issue.

Advancedcustomfields.com has a support forum, btw.

Support for ACF is available however in my experience, replies seem to be scheduled for 24-hr cycles.  In my case, I was looking for a quicker solution.  Typically why I post on EE because folks respond within an hour or two.

The issue I was having with ACF ended up being a hardcoded label, nothing to do with dynamic data from ACF.
