Field is not automatically saved using update_field and wp_insert_post

  • Hi everyone,

    Sorry my mistakes in english, but I’m quite concerned about this problem.

    When I create a new post using the two functions above and do a query using get_field that field does not appear.

    I must go to the newly created post and tighten to update post so that the field is available in the query.

    How should I proceed so that everything runs as reported in the last function found on this page: ?

    My code:

    // Cria um novo Arquivo, se houver dados via $_POST
    		$my_post = array(
    				'post_title'    => $_POST['file_title'],
    				'post_content'  => $_POST['file_desc'],
    				'post_status'   => 'publish',
    				'post_author'   => $current_user->ID,
    				'post_category' => $cats,
    				'post_type'		=> 'arquivo'
    		$post_created = wp_insert_post( $my_post );
    		// Relaciona o Arquivo criado ao Evento indicado via $_GET
    		update_field( "evento", $eventoid, $post_created );	
  • I forgot my loop:

    		<?php query_posts(array( 'post_type' => 'arquivo' ) ); ?>
    		<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    			 * Caso o campo Evento informado no Arquivo seja igual o evento
    			 * informado via URL, busca-se todos os arquivos (mídias) a esse Arquivo
    			$_evento = get_field('evento');
    			if($_evento != ""){
    				if($_evento == $eventoid){
    					$args = array(
    						'post_type' => 'attachment',
    						'numberposts' => null,
    						'post_status' => null,
    						'post_parent' => $post->ID
    					$attachments = get_posts($args);
    					if(count($attachments) > 0 ){
    						foreach ($attachments as $file){
    							if ( $last_id = get_post_meta($file->ID, '_edit_last', true) ) {
    								$last_user = get_userdata($last_id);
    								$last_user = get_userdata($file->post_author);
    							} ?>
    								<?php echo date("d.m.Y", strtotime($file->post_modified)); ?>
    								<span>Última alteração feira por: <?php echo $last_user->display_name;?></span> 
    								<a href="<?php echo $file->guid?>" title="<?php echo $file->post_title?>" target="_blank"><?php echo $file->post_title?></a>
    								<p><?php echo $file->post_content;?></p>
    							<?php }					
    			} ?>
    		<?php endwhile;?>

    The post title, content… is show but the field ‘evento’ NOT.

  • Thank´s for replay (what????).

    If someone have the same problem must specify the field KEY.

    I changed update_field( "evento", $eventoid, $post_created );
    for update_field( "field_my_field_key", $eventoid, $post_created );

    Hi @roneclay

    Yesterday I was unable to respond to support tickets.

    Yes, as explained in the update_field documentation, the fiel key must be used instead of the field name (if you do not already have a reference value saved for that post).
