  • You need to use ACF’s acf/save_post action hooks for this. I have seen this code somewhere here in the forum, but can’t find the link to that, so I’m pasting it below:

    function ps_acf_save_post( $post_id ) {
        // Don't do this on the ACF post type
        if ( get_post_type( $post_id ) == 'acf' ) return;
        // Get the Fields
        $fields = get_field_objects( $post_id );
        // Prevent Infinite Looping...
        remove_action( 'acf/save_post', 'my_acf_save_post' );
        // Grab Post Data from the Form
        $post = array(
            'ID'           => $post_id,
            'post_type'    => 'post',
            'post_title'   => $fields['new_title']['value'],
            'post_content' => $fields['new_description']['value'],
            'post_status'  => 'publish'
        // Update the Post
        wp_update_post( $post );
        // Continue save action
        add_action( 'acf/save_post', 'my_save_post' );
        // Set the Return URL in Case of 'new' Post
        $_POST['return'] = add_query_arg( 'updated', 'true', get_permalink( $post_id ) );
    add_action( 'acf/save_post', 'ps_acf_save_post', 10, 1 );

    new_title is a my custom field to be replicated for the Title and new_description for the content.
