  • Hi James,

    Thanks for the reply. The basic idea is: I need to create a page on my WordPress site that has a simple form for registered users. This form would have a single text input where they can copy-and-paste any YouTube URL, then submit the form.

    Where it gets more complicated is the submitted URL needs to be passed through a 3rd party API which will gather the YouTube video’s Title, Description, and Thumbnail.

    The final step is to take that data and create a new post in a certain Category and have the post attributed to the user who submitted the form. All of this needs to happen automatically.

    Also, I do own the ACF Pro version already.
