Getting the post_id after creating a post with acf_form()

  • Hello!
    I think this may be simple to do but I can’t get it to work

    I’ve created an acf_form() than creates a custom post on submit and redirects to a thanks you page, my question is, is there any way to get the new post_id there so I can display the info?

    I see there is a acf/pre_save_post filter but I would need something where I can get the post_id and maybe store it to session meanwhile or something


  • Hi @polsola

    You should be able to do it by using the wp_redirect() function with the acf/save_post hook. But, you need to pass the ID to redirect URL like this:

    function my_acf_redirect_after_save( $post_id ) {
        // Only do it for "custom_post" post type
        if( get_post_type($post_id) != 'custom_post' ){
    	// Only do it on the front end
    	if( is_admin() ){
        wp_redirect( '' . $post_id );
    // run after ACF saves the $_POST['acf'] data
    add_action('acf/save_post', 'my_acf_redirect_after_save', 99);

    Then you can get the ID on the thank you page like this:

    $post_id = $GET['postid'];

    I hope this helps 🙂

  • Hello James,

    Thanks a lot it works! Just one thing, I have to add a die() after the wp_redirect() because if not it keep going to the ?updated=true
