  • Ok, this is the entire function:

    function builder_save_post($post_id){
    	global $post;
    	global $saving_build;
    	$saving_build = true;
    	$builder_post = array();
        $builder_post['ID'] = $post_id; 
    	if ( ! wp_is_post_revision( $post_id ) ){ 
    		$set_template = get_post_meta( $post_id, '_wp_page_template', true );
    		$do_build = false; 
    		$builder_out = '';
    		if( '_template-acf-builder.php' == $set_template && have_rows('bc_builder') ){ 
    			$builder_out .= '<div class="bc_builder">'; 
    			while( have_rows('bc_builder') ){
    				$layout = get_row_layout(); 
    				if( !empty($layout) ){
    					get_template_part('layout/builder', $layout.'-save_post'); 
    					$builder_out .= ob_get_clean();
    			$builder_out .= '</div>';
    			$do_build = true;
    		$builder_post['post_content'] = $builder_out; 
    			remove_filter('acf/save_post', 'builder_save_post', 20);  
    			wp_update_post( $builder_post );
    			add_action('acf/save_post', 'builder_save_post', 20); 
    		$saving_build = false;
    add_action('acf/save_post', 'builder_save_post', 20);

    As you can see i´m using get_template_part to get php files iniside /layout/ folder, this templates are named with same name of the flexible layout ($layout variable).
    So if layout is “gallery”, the template is layout/builder-gallery-save_post.php.

    It works perfectly, data is saved the right way. But….

    Let´s say i inside on of those templates i have something like this:

    The title: "<? the_title() ?>"
    The shortcode: <? echo do_shortcode('[shortcode]'); ?>

    Where “shortcode” is just an example, could be any shortcode. Let´s imagine that this shortcode outputs only a string like “Hello”, so, this is what is saved into the post_content till now:

    Post title: "My post title"
    The shortcode: Hello

    The last “The shortcode: Hello” is the problem, i don´t whant the result of the shortcode, i want this to be saved into post_content:

    Post title: "My post title"
    The shortcode: [shortcode]

    That´s it, i need to save just “[shortcode]” into the post_content, not the “Hello” result that this shortcode returns. So, i guess there´s must be some way to unfilter the do_shortcode before i get the template part or something like that.

    Sorry, it´s a complex situation and is hard to explain 🙂
