Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) Triggering the Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) \'acf/save_post\' Action Reply To: Triggering the Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) \'acf/save_post\' Action

  • Thanks again, John, for your feedback. Yes, this reinforces your prior answer, but if I want both to update a post’s metadata via a post editor window AND update the post itself, how best would I do so?

    For example, it would seem that I need to create a WP core “save_post” add_action, whereby its callback function invokes the ACF “acf/save_post” add_action. Given the latter requires its own callback function, is it a best practice to next an add_action and its callback function within the callback function of another add_action?

    In other words, I understand the purpose of the “save_post” and “acf/save_post” add_actions, but how do I implement them together into a cohesive whole that follows best practices?
