acf/load_field not displaying selected items in dropdown after save.

  • I am using the following code…

    function pwdctest_choices( $field ) {
        // reset choices
        $field['choices'] = array();
        $terms = get_terms( array(
            'taxonomy' => 'practice_areas',
            'hide_empty' => false,
        ) );
        $i = 0;
        foreach ($terms as $term){
            $choices[$i]['name'] = $term->name;
            $choices[$i]['slug'] = $term->slug;
            $choices[$i]['id'] = $term->term_id;
        // loop through array and add to field 'choices'
        if( is_array($choices) ) {
            foreach( $choices as $choice ) {
                $field['choices'][$choice['name']] = $choice['name'];
        // return the field
        return $field;
    add_filter('acf/load_field/name=pwdctest_choices_field', 'pwdctest_choices');

    this is what is being returned from the above function…

    `array(1) {
    array(14) {
    [“Branded Environments”]=>
    string(20) “Branded Environments”
    [“Civic and Cultural”]=>
    string(18) “Civic and Cultural”
    [“Corporate and Commercial”]=>
    string(24) “Corporate and Commercial”
    [“Corporate Interiors”]=>
    string(19) “Corporate Interiors”
    string(10) “Healthcare”
    [“Higher Education”]=>
    string(16) “Higher Education”
    string(11) “Hospitality”
    [“K-12 Education”]=>
    string(14) “K-12 Education”
    [“Landscape Architecture”]=>
    string(22) “Landscape Architecture”
    [“Planning and Strategies”]=>
    string(23) “Planning and Strategies”
    [“Science and Technology”]=>
    string(22) “Science and Technology”
    [“Sports, Recreation and Entertainment”]=>
    string(36) “Sports, Recreation and Entertainment”
    string(14) “Transportation”
    [“Urban Design”]=>
    string(12) “Urban Design”

    when I save the post it does save to the database but the multi select shows nothing.

    Not sure but it seems that this should work. Any help would be appreciated.
