Custom Fields are not showing in admin section

Apologies if this is a repost, I couldn't find any existing matching queries.


We're having a strange problem. In the admin section we can create custom fields with no problem, add them to screens, etc. But they do not show up in the custom field list when we want to configure, edit or delete them. By using inspect element we can find the field ID (on screens) and manually enter the correct url, but this is a very annoying issue. Any fix for this?

One possible culprit that I've run into several times - you've put javascript into one or more custom field descriptions.  That can spectacularly break the custom field list (and other stuff in general)

Nic, you are a lifesaver! Thank you so much. I found and fixed the wonky javascript.

Jesse, How did you find the field with the Javascript? I'm having a similar issue where I've created two custom fields and they aren't showing up in the Custom Field listing.
