Many thanks for your reply.
I’ll tweak this function/hook to see if I can understand the way it works.
I do have a question , though:
the “field” I need to change is the post_name, which obviously goes into the WP_POST Table of the DB. If I understand correctly, this should be the $value from the hook function ? & the aggregated ‘data’ (ie. something like get_field(‘firstname’).” “.get_field(‘lastname’)) should be the $field parameter of the function ? & How do I get the $post_id ?
Sorry if I sound thick, lol !
I’d like to var_dump() either the WP_post post before it gets recorded to see what the variable / object hold . When & how should I do this ?
Many thanks again for your help.
