updated_message not working

    Upon submitting the front-end form, the confirmation message, as defined by updated_message, is not displayed. The post is actually submitted, but the form is just emptied and re-rendered without a confirmation message that the update/submit was successful. Is there an error in my code below? How can I make the confirmation message pop-up upon submitting?

    <form id='post' class='acf-form' action='' method='post'>
        'field_groups' => ['group_xxx'],
        'post_id'	=> 'new_post',
        'post_title'	=> false,
        'post_content'	=> false,
        'updated_message' => __("Thank you! ...", 'acf'),
        'submit_value' => __("Submit", 'acf'), 
        'form' => false
      if(current_user_can('activate_plugins')) {
          'field_groups' => ['group_yyy'],
          'post_id' => 'new_post',
          'form' => false
    <div class="acf-form-submit">
      <input type="submit" class="acf-button button button-primary button-large" value="Submit resource suggestion">
      <span class="acf-spinner"></span>

    Update: In the inspector I just found out that display is still set to none for the confirmation message. How come? What am I doing wrong?

  • the updated message only gets displayed if the URL parameter ‘?updated=true’ is returned

    Unfortunately the ‘return’ parameter for the form doesn’t do that on default, even if it says so in the documentation 😉

    I know this is an old thread, but I have the same issue with the latest version.
    The url contains ?updated=true but the message is never shown.

    Never mind, it was a css style that was hiding the message.
