I’m writing a plugin for the practice and running into an issue where another plugin, Advanced Custom Fields is conflicting with my code. I have created a custom post type with it’s own custom field. My save method works and the custom field data is saved if I disable ACF, however I am getting a validation error that I think comes from the acf plugin when trying to save/publish with the plugin active. See pic for the error message.
So I guess my question is, do I need to check if that plugin is active and use it’s functions to handle this and if not do it the normal way, or am I doing something else wrong? Does every plugin that saves custom field data have to check if this plugin is active and handle it accordingly? That just doesn’t seem right to me but this is my first time writing a plugin.
LOL! I completely forgot that I originally was building this with acf into the theme before deciding to try and build it as a plugin. Had a custom field group assigned to the post type. Deleted the field group and everything works now. Thank you 🙂
