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.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
