I have recently started using Themer to make field connections to user meta data. However, I have come across a bug (or maybe just limitation) specifically related to the “Number Counter” module.
I have a certain user meta value that is stored and that I want to read that may change often. I have connected a header, a text field, and even the “Text Before Number” field and it always displays the correct, current number from the user’s meta data. However, when I connect the Number field itself, it never loads the new data after the module is initially saved.
For example, let’s say the number is “700” at the time I save the module. The number countdown will currently be set to 700, and all other connected fields show 700.
If I then, somewhere else, change that number in the user’s meta data to 600, and go back and reload the original page, all of the connection fields update EXCEPT for the number in the Number Counter. It stays at 700.
So, it seems to me that this connected field for “Number” is only reading the connected field data at the time the module is saved, and NOT again when the page is loaded like it should.
Any chance that a) there is a way for this field to load dynamically like all of the others or b) a workaround anyone can suggest?
Hopefully the problem description is clear, please let me know if I can provide any other information.
