I can’t edit the Shortcode Options In MEC Plugin

Here we can see a conversation from the Modern Event Calendar’s support desk on how to edit the shortcode options in MEC plugin and conflict with third party plugin(s)



For troubleshooting, deactivate all your plugins and let the MEC remain active only, set your theme on default, then reload the page, if the issue was solved, then activate your plugins one by one and your theme, refresh your page and check to see which plugin is causing the issue.

You can find the reason for the conflict.

When I enable the ACF plugin I can't edit the shortcode option on top of the page. The select fields are emptied after the page loads.
Already tried with all other plugins OFF and using the default WordPress themes.

This is a temporary solution to fix the problem:
1- Install this plugin: Simple Custom CSS and JS
2- Add a new custom CSS
3- Put CSS below:
.post-type-mec_calendars .mec-col-4.wn-mec-select {display: block !important;} .post-type-mec_calendars .nice-select.mec-col-4.wn-mec-select {display: none !important;}
4- select active in Admin:
5- save & publish
after that please hard refresh the backend page,

I'll forward this issue to dev team for fix in next updates
