  • Okay, Now I have this and it still does not work, what’s going on?

    //Auto assign Featured image from 'post_image'
    function acf_set_featured_image( $value, $post_id, $field  ){
        if($value != ''){
    	    //Add the value which is the image ID to the _thumbnail_id meta data for the current post
    	    update_post_meta($post_id, '_thumbnail_id', $value->ID);
        return $value;
    add_filter('acf/update_value/key=field_53b58efe0accf', 'acf_set_featured_image', 10, 3);

    Strange right? I tested it with field output->ID and just using $value that works great… but I need the object
