frontend creating post with acf

  • Hi,
    I’m following this tutorial:
    to create new post.
    this is my code:
    `<?php $my_fields = array(
    <h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>

    <?php the_content(); ?>

    <!–<p>My custom field: <?php //the_field($provider_name); ?></p>–>

    <?php $new_provider = array (
    ‘post_id’ => ‘new_post’,
    ‘new_post’ => array(
    ‘post_type’ => ‘provider’,
    ‘post-status’ => ‘draft’
    ‘field_gruops’ => $my_fields,
    ‘form’ => true,
    ‘return’ => ‘/’,
    ‘html_before_fields’ => ”,
    ‘html_after_fields’ => ”,
    ‘submit_value’ => __(‘Create a new provider’),
    ‘updated_message’ => __(“The provider has been saved”, ‘acf’)



    – acf_form_head(); is in the header
    – post type is custom
    I can see the post but getting this error:
    Warning: array_merge(): Argument #1 is not an array in C:\xampp\htdocs\ddo_wp\wp-content\plugins\advanced-custom-fields\core\api.php on line 1185

  • There are a few things that are going on in the code above, which may be the way you’ve copy/pasted it, but are worth noting.

    Firstly – some programs style apostrophes as a slightly different type of character that looks a lot like an apostrophe but is more akin to a grave, or an acute accent. MS Word is killer for this, but a lot of other programs do it too and it looks like something similar is happening in your code.

    – If we fix this, we can then see a couple of other issues – on line 6, you don’t close your php tag before the <h1>.

    – Your HTML comment is also missing a hyphen, as comments should be <!– –>, however this won’t cause anything other than styling issues for you.

    – The parameter “field_groups” has been misspelled as “field_gruops” which may be the underlying cause of your error.

    – The updated message has some curly quotes in it as well.

    Fixing all of the above gives you some code that looks more like the following:

    <?php $my_fields = array(
    <h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    <!-- <p>My custom field: <?php //the_field($provider_name); ?></p> -->
    <?php $new_provider = array (
    'post_id'	=> 'new_post',
    'new_post' => array(
    'post_type' => 'provider',
    'post-status' => 'draft'
    'field_groups'	=> $my_fields,
    'form' => true,
    'return' => '/',
    'html_before_fields' => ”,
    'html_after_fields' => ”,
    'submit_value'	=> __('Create a new provider'),
    'updated_message' => __("The provider has been saved", 'acf')

    If you run that through, it may work a little better?
