    Hi Tareq !

    I have a website where I have the free version of WPUF. I needed the fields to be accessible from back end too so after created the fields in WPUF, I created the same (same name etc…) with Advanced Custom Field so I'm able to edit these fields in the back end. Now I've added a checkbox field with WPUF and the same with ACF but it seems that ACF and WPUF give different name/ID to the field so the value in back end and front end are not the same for these checkboxes.

    So I thought : I can install WPUF Pro to have the fields in the backend and remove ACF !

    But how can I upgrade WPUF to WPUF Pro without loosing what I did ?

    Thanks a lot Tareq !

    The free version adds a prefix cf_ to every custom field created by it, so you can use ACF by adding cf_ to every meta key.

    What did you do with the free version that you might loose? Any customizations?

    In fact, if I use WPUF checkboxes and ACF checkboxes with the same name, the values are not save in ACF… This only happens with checkboxes…

    Nothing, I was just wondering if I can simply install the pro version without loosing what I did.

    Thanks !

    May be the format of saving ACF and WPUF is different, thats why.

    Yeah, you'll lose them. The PRO version uses a full different approach for saving forms and the form fields. So the PRO is not backward compatible.
