You can show the post title field to allow for creating/editing that using
post_title => true in
To change the post status after a submission of updating an existing post you should use the
acf/save_post action hook. You could update it using
wp_update_post() and if you do you HAVE TO remove your acf/save_post action before and add it back afterwards. Otherwise you’ll end up with an infinite loop.
Another way is to change it using the global $wpdb variable directly.
global $wpdb; //Skip if this isn't a post or if status is already pending. if ( ! $post = get_post( $post_id ) ) return; if ( 'pending' == $post->post_status ) return; //Update DB with pending status. $wpdb->update( $wpdb->posts, array( 'post_status' => 'pending' ), array( 'ID' => $post_id ) ); //clean the cache for the post clean_post_cache( $post->ID ); //Trigger all transition hooks in wordpress (in case other functions hook into those to do things. $old_status = $post->post_status; $post->post_status = 'pending'; wp_transition_post_status( 'publish', $old_status, $post );
