Bug #22728 Clarification Requested

Deleting field group doesn’t properly delete fields

Version: 3.4.3 Reporter: TIADigital

If you delete a field group, the group and the fields are visibly removed from the CMS, but if you try to create a field with the same short name as one in that deleted group, you get the <pre><code>This field must be unique.[/error].

The field will also be displayed if you search for the short name but there is no option to remove them.

  • Does this happen for you only for specific fields? Third-party? First-party?

  • First party, tested it with a standard text field.

  • Just done another test, it only seems to happen if you create another field group and field with the exact same names as the deleted one. I’ll send a screen recording shortly.

  • Weird, it’s not happening now. I’ll do some more investigating and let you know
