There are a few things that are going on in the code above, which may be the way you’ve copy/pasted it, but are worth noting.
Firstly – some programs style apostrophes as a slightly different type of character that looks a lot like an apostrophe but is more akin to a grave, or an acute accent. MS Word is killer for this, but a lot of other programs do it too and it looks like something similar is happening in your code.
– If we fix this, we can then see a couple of other issues – on line 6, you don’t close your php tag before the <h1>.
– Your HTML comment is also missing a hyphen, as comments should be <!– –>, however this won’t cause anything other than styling issues for you.
– The parameter “field_groups” has been misspelled as “field_gruops” which may be the underlying cause of your error.
– The updated message has some curly quotes in it as well.
Fixing all of the above gives you some code that looks more like the following:
<?php $my_fields = array( 'field_57065cfb19c17', 'field_57065dc319c18', 'field_57065e1a19c19', 'field_57065ea919c1a' ); ?> <h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1> <?php the_content(); ?> <!-- <p>My custom field: <?php //the_field($provider_name); ?></p> --> <?php $new_provider = array ( 'post_id' => 'new_post', 'new_post' => array( 'post_type' => 'provider', 'post-status' => 'draft' ), 'field_groups' => $my_fields, 'form' => true, 'return' => '/', 'html_before_fields' => ”, 'html_after_fields' => ”, 'submit_value' => __('Create a new provider'), 'updated_message' => __("The provider has been saved", 'acf') ); acf_form($new_provider); ?>
If you run that through, it may work a little better?
