      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugin_basename() in wp-content/plugins/acf-to-wp-api/acf-to-wp-api.php:39
    • > PHP Warning
      Use of undefined constant WP_PLUGIN_DIR - assumed 'WP_PLUGIN_DIR' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in wp-content/plugins/acf-to-wp-api/acf-to-wp-api.php on line 38
    • > PHP Warning
