I’ve been looking for a way to achieve front end form post creation and on submit the page does not reload.
I have found lots of examples using ajax but none of these seem to work anymore.
Does anybody know of a simple way to achieve this?
As far as I know, the ACF frontend form doesn’t reload the page. You can opt to redirect on submission
Or you could look to use something like Gravity Forms, you can opt to create a post based on the form (you need the developer licence), plus handles a lot of the work for you. I know for certain the page doesn’t reload, unless you want it to. I used this for several sites and works well!
@jarvis the page definitely does reload when you submit a front end form and you’re correct you can set the return value, but if I set the return value to the same page it will still reload the page regardless.
I would rather a solution that does not use a plugin.
You would need to look into submitting the form using AJAX. I have never done this. There is a long conversation here. A search on using ajax to submit acf_form turns up a lot of other results, that’s were I’d start. Sorry I can’t be of more help.
