ACF breaks my site and RM doesn’t count words

  • Resolved Emiliano Russo
    Rank Math pro

    Rank Math doesn’t count the words of what I write in the flex block (a builder) of my theme. I’m using flotheme.
    I was trying to install ACF but it breaks my theme and it appears this error that you can see here:

    I really don’t know what to do. I wouldn’t never go back to yoast but it will be necessary if you don’t fix this, as RM doesn’t count the real words I type in.

    I’m actually working on a /test2 flder as I’m going to restyle my website so now I’m testing the home page at this page:

    What is not read by RM: is this content, created with the flex block:

    But the problema is ACF that when it’ installed beaks my website so the only way to go is going manually and unistall it by ftp.

    I really whish you can help me.

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    FloTheme already has the ACF plugin included, so that is why when you install the ACF plugin, you have that error (you have the same plugin twice so they conflict). But the ACF module in Rank Math is only compatible with the standalone ACF plugin, so that is why Rank Math is not being able to read the content in your post.

    My recommendation would be contacting the theme support to check if there is some way to disable the ACF module inside FloTheme and enable the standalone one so it will be read by Rank Math.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    Hi Alberto,

    Thank you for your answer. I am not sure this is possibile as I used to have yoast and they suggested me to install ACF yoast but I did it and it used to work. So they don’t have ACF integrated and it’s not in their module.

    I simply installed RM cause Yoast jhas many other issues.

    Please help me out

    I think you have right. I double ckecked and it’s true. Yoast does not work at all and so Rank Math. I’m asking the money back. Fortunately I did it with paypal. Flotheme is horrible. Can you suggest me a good theme, fast and ideal for phtographers withour that issues, so seo friendly?

    Well, maybe my opinion doesn’t seem objective but I would recommend you to check the MyThemeShop’s themes, since it is our parent company and they are developed by the same team as our plugin (and also have our support) so it is fully compatible with Rank Math and completely SEO friendly!

    I leave you here a link to all the themes if you are interested on checking them:

    Looking forward to help you.

    Thank you Alberto!

    I had a quick look on your website and it looks amazing. There are many themes, but mostly about business and other kind of activities. I haven’t found something specific for photography and in my case wedding photography.

    My website is still made with avada. Here I’m still with yoast but I felt in Love with Rank Math while I was working in the /test2 subfolder for a restyling. Flotheme really sucks. Both yoast and RM are technically not supported by this theme.

    Avada also ha declared that from the version 7 will join flexblock inside. So I have some question:

    1) Will RM work inside avada with flexblock? I guess there are no issues in installing flexbloc in avada with ACF right now, but I can figure out how will be with flexblock.

    2) Do you know some mythemeshop version for photographers?

    3) Do you think is possibile that in 2020 a theme is not compatible with seo plugins like Yoast or Rank Math? 🙂 How they can even think to sell their products?

    Let’s answer all the questions one by one:

    1) About this, I would recommend you ask their support; if they don’t support it, with just a few lines of code they could make it (thanks to our API).

    2) Maybe you like these themes:,

    3) No, I agree with you, a theme in 2020 should support SEO plugins, it is a must.

    Looking forward to help you.

    Thank you I actually have another problem as the theme says it’s missing the gd directory but they actually are installed on my server aruba. Gonna open another ticked for ths: Thank you

    Perfect, then do you want us to close this thread? You know, we will be here to help you with any other issues or questions.

    Looking forward to help you.

    Yes, you can.

    I have actually another issue. I’ve been trying Rank Math on avada at the moment and it counts 4000 words. But they actually are 900…So it says that the key density is low. How I can fix this?

    One more thing… Here you say that flotheme is compatible, but it is actually not. You should remove this page.

    But with Avada I’m having the same issue of this guy:

    It looks like I cannot use Rank Math 🙁

    Hi Emiliano,

    FloThemes uses a custom version of ACF and if you use their themes, you do not need to enable the ACF module in Rank Math.

    With that said, the compatibility for the content analysis was added by the FloThemes team and if it is not working for some reason, please contact them as I am not sure if they have added the compatibility code to all their products.

    Regarding Avada, many users have already contacted them about adding the analysis API but they have not added that yet.

    They actually say that they don’t support Ypast and Rank Math as well. I wrote them an email and they answer this. And they ridicously suggested me to help myself with some chrome extension.

    So I also suggest you to write them and ask why they compromise all this. At the moment I’m on paypal opening a claim to have a refund from folotheme. I can go back with them only when they have 100% certainty of compatibility with your plugin.

    I agree with you. I will close this thread but if you have any other questions or issues, you know we are here.

    If you don’t mind me asking, could you please leave us a review (if you haven’t already) on about your overall experience with Rank Math? We appreciate your time and patience.

    If you do have another question in the future, please feel free to create a new forum topic, and it will be our pleasure to assist you again.

    Thank you.

    Thank you Alberto i will definitely write a review also specify my experience with flotheme and avada that don’t provide any improvement in their reding module data of their content. This damage both Yoast and also Math Rank. I truly wish that this will change very soon. This is not a Math rank fault. This is how they write codes and how they write content builders.

    Thank you so much and for understanding.

    If you need help with anything else, please open a new support ticket here so we can help.

    We are always here for assistance.
