Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) Updating Linked Taxonomy on Save Reply To: Updating Linked Taxonomy on Save

  • So I’ve come down to this essentially.

    When updating an ACF taxonomy field with update_field( "field_ID", "", $post_id) in order to clear the field, it does NOT remove the taxonomy association in the wp_term_relationships table.

    This is with the Field Type set to Taxonomy, and the following checked:

    Save Terms: Yes
    Load Terms: Yes

    Is there a way to unset the taxonomy field association on update_field? Currently I know what field I want to update and the applicable taxonomy, so I can use wp_delete_object_term_relationship against the given $post_id, but it would be nice if update_field took care of this for me.
