Frontend submission goes to white screen

  • Hi,

    I have created a field group and am running the following code to display it:


    function my_pre_save_post( $post_id ) {
        // check if this is to be a new post
        if( $post_id != 'new' )
            return $post_id;
        // Create a new post
        $post = array(
            'post_status'   => 'pending',
            'post_title'    => 'title',
            'post_type'     => 'events',
        // insert the post
        $post_id = wp_insert_post( $post );
        // update $_POST['return']
        $_POST['return'] = add_query_arg( array('post_id' => $post_id), $_POST['return'] );
        // return the new ID
        return $post_id;
    add_filter('acf/pre_save_post' , 'my_pre_save_post' );


        'post_id'       => 'new',
        'field_groups'	=> array( 1450 ),
        'submit_value'	=> 'Submit'

    What happens is the form goes through as intended, but in the process the page gets redirected to a white screen with a zero on it. What do you suppose could be the problem

  • I am with this same problem

  • Hi,

    As of later versions of ACF you do not need to use that filter in order for a new post to be created.

    Instead you use the new_post parameter of acf_form.

    See the section under “Create a new post” here:
