  • I’m not sure that’s the case: the function validate_save_post in /core/validation.php will wp_die() with the validation message if the $show_errors parameter is set to true, which is exactly what I’m getting above.

    Doing a manual stack trace, it looks like it’s being called from save_user() in /forms/user.php, wherein it checks if acf_validate_save_post(true) returns true, then save the user info. That parameter is $show_errors, and is hard-set.

    For the sake of a sanity check, I enabled WP_DEBUG and all I got were a couple of notices about an undefined index in my functions file. I amended those and still got the same result, but having looked at the code, it looks like this is how it’s supposed to behave?

    Just to be clear: I’m using acf_form() on the front end to update user details. There are a couple of forms on the same page, and they all work – whenever I submit a form, I get the little spinner, then the page refreshes with the query_vars specified in my acf_form() as $_GET arguments. It’s just that when one of the required fields is left blank, I end up with this ugly wp_die() screen instead of either some ajax response or an in-form error message.

    For reference, here’s my code:

    $userObject = wp_get_current_user();
    $userID = $userObject->ID;
    $profileOptions = array(
       'post_id'         => 'user_' . $userID,
       'id'            => 'profile-form',
       'field_groups'      => array('vnm_profile__acf_group_user_profile'),
       'form'            => false,
       'return'         => add_query_arg(array('section-updated' => 'profile', 'updated' => 'true'), get_permalink()),
       'updated_message'   => __('Profile information updated!', 'my-theme'),
       'submit_value'      => __('Update Profile', 'my-theme'),
