The problem is that ACF outputs the form when the shortcode is run and what you need it to do is return the value. To do this you use a PHP output buffer
// before you generate form ob_start(); $current_id = get_current_user_id(); $user_id = 'user_' . $current_id; $options = array( 'post_id' => $user_id, /* my field group grabs unit, home phone, and cell phone acf */ 'field_groups' => array('3307', ), 'submit_value' => 'Update' ); acf_form( $options ); // after your code $form = ob_get_clean(); return $form;
