Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) Multiple checkbox choices not saving in database Reply To: Multiple checkbox choices not saving in database

  • Gravity forms is likely saving the checkbox field in the same way that WP would store multiple values for a custom field… that is, multiple entries in the meta table with the same meta_key. ACF stores a checkbox field as a serialized array. If you look in the DB you will likely find multiple values. When editing the post in the admin ACF only gets one value because that is all that it is expecting so it only gets the first one that was saved.

    I do not know anything about GF, but you will need to create some type of filter for GF to make it save correctly for use with ACF. You may need to use different fields for GF than the ACF fields and then create a filter for GF that manually populates the fields in the way that ACF expects the to be populated.
