  • Hi Elliot,

    Sorry for being unclear.

    So, say I’m using the “Text Area” field type.
    I would like to save whatever the user typed in the Text Area.

    i) There is Default value “placeholder text” once the post is loaded
    ii) User click into the “Text Area” post, change all the text to be “user data”
    iii) User refresh the page by hitting F5
    iv) After refresh, the post is showing “user data” instead of “placeholder text”

    I’m not so sure what ACF function to call to save the data once the client side has completed their action. (I can possibly save them in a text file and then reload them when I’m calling “create_field”, but I’m hoping ACF can save the data so I can avoid saving the data myself)

    Hope the example above made my Goal a little bit more clear. This may just be a very basic question. I tried searching around, but don’t know how to achieve this.
