global $post and acf/init hook

  • Is global $post supposed to be available in the acf/init hook?

    I am using the acf/init hook to register fields, however I don’t seem to be able to access $post when using the hook.

  • Never mind, I was mistaken. I can access it using $_GET.

  • Just for anyone looking for a similar question. The acf/init hook fires during the WP init action. Basically, ACF runs an action on the WP init action. After ACF sets up certain thing it fires the acf/init action which cause other actions in ACF to run. The global $post variable in only available inside “The Loop”, or at least “A Loop” that uses it.
