Front-end Form Post Status

  • I’ve used the the plugin ‘Better Notifications For WordPress’ along side ACF on several sites to notify admins of new posts submitted via a front-end form.

    This has worked really well when the post is submitted as a draft and then published by an admin later or if the post is submitted directly from the dashboard.

    But I can’t get it to send a notification if the front-end form is set to publish the post straight away, any ides?


    Here’s what I have in my form args:

    $args = array(
    	'post_id' => 'new',
    	'form' => true,
    	'html_after_fields' => '<input type="hidden" name="post_type" value="resource_centre">',
    	'autocomplete' => 'false',
    	'field_groups' => array(236, 285),
    	'return' => home_url() . '/resource-thank-you',
    	'submit_value'      => 'Add Resource',
    	'updated_message' => 'Done.'
  • Hi @leanda,

    From your description it sounds like the issue is emerging from the Better Notifications For WordPress plugin.

    Have you checked with this plugin’s author if they are aware of this?

  • Hi James

    Thanks for replying. The plugin author confirmed that there is no notification for ‘Publish to Publish’ posts / pages as they can cause conflicts with other plugins that immediately publish posts.
