  • Hi jarvis,

    thanks a lot for your input! You are right for vanilla Woocommerce Reviews. I tried it myself and it works. The problem is, I am already using a plugin that enhances the Woocommerce Reviews and I try to extend this plugin with those custom fields. The method you explain doesn’t work with this plugin. Only in the backend but not in the frontend form.

    I worked on this issue and managed to get a bit further.
    (with help of this artivle

    $new_post= array(
    ‘post_id’ => ‘new_post’,
    ‘field_groups’ => array(21112),
    ‘post_title’ => false,
    ‘post_content’ => false,
    ‘form’ => false
    acf_form( $new_post);

    This way the I do not get an additional submit button and the original submit button still works. I can submit reviews this way. The only problem remaining. Only the original Inputs get saved. The Inputs of the new custom fields do not.

    I assume I am still doing something wrong in the code that goes into functions.php

    add_filter(‘acf/pre_save_post’, ‘save_post_from_frontend’);
    function save_post_from_frontend( $post_id) {

    //Check if user loggin or can publish post
    if( ! ( is_user_logged_in() || current_user_can(‘publish_posts’) ) ) {

    // check if this is to be a new post
    if( $post_id!= ‘new_post’) {
    return $post_id;

    $post= array(
    ‘post_type’ => ‘w2rr_review’, // Your post type ( post, page, custom post type )
    ‘post_status’ => ‘publish’, // (publish, draft, private, etc.)
    // insert the post
    $post_id= wp_insert_post( $post);
    // Save the fields to the post
    do_action( ‘acf/save_post’, $post_id);
    return $post_id;
