ACF field true/false

  • Hello,

    I created a true / false type “notify by email” custom field in ACF. I would like that when the toggle is on “true” it sends the administrators an e-mail indicating “New post published on the site. Find it here: …..”.

    For the notification e-mail, it works fine unconditionally, so send notification systematically after publishing a new post. On the other hand, when I try to add if (get_field (‘my-custom-field’)); to my code this does not work. It doesn’t matter if the field is active or not it does not send an email.

    Here is my code:

    add_action( 'publish_post', 'send_notification' );
    function send_notification( $post_id ) {
    	if(get_field('my-custom-field')) {
            $args = array (
                'role' => 'administrator',
    			'role' => 'subscriber'
            $user_query = new WP_User_Query( $args );
             $email_addresses = array();
            foreach ( $user_query->results as $user ) {
                $email_addresses[] = $user->user_email;
            $post_title = get_the_title( $post_id ); 
            $post_url = get_permalink( $post_id ); 
            $subject = "New post published";
    		$message = "Hello,\n";
            $message .= "The post has just been published :" . $post_url . "\n\n";
    	    $message .= "Thank you.";
            wp_mail($email_addresses, $subject, $message );

    Can you help me please ?

    Thank you so much!

  • The problem is that ‘publish_post’ happens before save_post and ACF saves values on the latter. This means that you are attempting to get a value that ACF has not yet set.

    You either need to use the acf/save_post hook with a priority > 10 or you need to look for the value in $_POST[‘acf’]

  • It works perfectly, thank you very much John Huebner!
