Fixed Bug? Export of add-on ACP options not including 'advanced' option


Well-known member
Affected version
2.2.7 PL1
When exporting an add-on the option's Show in advanced mode only flag does not seem to be getting exported when the release is built.

On my dev install looking in the /_output/options folder I can see that "advanced": true, is in the .json file but when I build the release and take a look in the zip files /_data folder I can't find anything for the option to set the advanced mode. When installing on a fresh XF site, the option always show regardless of the of ACP's 'show advanced options' checkbox.

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.8).

Change log:
Ensure advanced flag for options is both imported and exported correctly
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
