Front-end forms post to /wp-admin/admin-post.php – can this be changed?

  • Hi,
    I’m investigating an issue for a client who use ACF front-end forms for a couple of their public facing enquiry forms.

    As a security measure, the client would like to block all public access to /wp-admin/ with a NGINX rule, however the ACF front-end forms post-back to /wp-admin/admin-post.php.

    Is there a way to have ACF front-end forms instead post to a URL outside /wp-admin/, or perhaps use the WP REST-API instead?

    Any help appreciated.

    Thank you.

  • when using acf_form(), by default the form submits to the same URL that the form is located on, not to the admin. Where your forms are submitting to has been changed either by a plugin or in code. If you are using a plugin for front end forms then you need to contact the developer of that plugin.

  • Thank you for the clarification, John – that’s very helpful.
