FormidablePro and URL field ACF

  • Hello,

    I use the front-end plugin FormidablePro (vote for integration* 😉 )
    The value is stored in FormidablePro, but I have not storing a value of a URL field in ACF.

    I do not understand. A moderator said : ” I do not-have a “URL” option in the “Basic” options”
    The URL field is it only in the Pro version?

    I do not put anything in the great fields with ACF Pro or http: // (but this did not change anything).
    Do you have an idea to solve this problem ?
    Regards

  • Hi @hdcms

    I’m not completely following your issue.
    The URL field type in ACF is available for both regular and PRO version.

    If you store a meta value on a post using FormidablePro that you want to access using ACF you’re going to run into a problem. Basically ACF uses two key > value pairs in the database for each meta value. One is the field name => field value and the other is the field key => field name.

    If you save the values using FormidablePro the pair field key => field name isn’t created. Then you have to manually save/update the post again for that to be created and THEN you can access it using the_field() for example.

    So you either have to use some sort of filter/action hook in FormidablePro to yourself use update_field() and save the meta value with the Field key. Or you have to wait for FormidablePro to support ACF.. 🙂

    Here’s some related info:
