Gutenberg blocks – ACF does not save if key has "-" in value

  • I just made a very, in name, unique field to be sure problem is real.

    All fields with one word in key (no -) save values without problems. But those with multiple words not. No matter if I reduced field Name to one word.

    For instance this field (never used before, just to be sure) is not saving:


    ACF PRO is updated to latest, WP latest.

  • Can you please just correct topic title, thanks.

  • Tipically. Snippet to prevent duplicate slugs makes it.

    function bhrs_save_post_callback( $post_ID, $post, $update ) {
        if (in_array($postarr['post_type'], array('post', 'page', 'chronik', 'mitglied', 'galerie', 'vorstand', 'event')) &&
    !in_array($data['post_status'], array('publish', 'draft', 'pending', 'auto-draft', 'future', 'private', 'trash')))
        // unhook this function to prevent infinite looping
        remove_action( 'save_post', 'bhrs_save_post_callback', 10, 3 );
        // update the post slug (WP handles unique post slug)
        wp_update_post( array(
            'ID' => $post_ID,
            'post_name' => ''
        // re-hook this function
        add_action( 'save_post', 'bhrs_save_post_callback', 10, 3 );
    add_action( 'save_post', 'bhrs_save_post_callback', 10, 3 );

    This one leave ACF slugs alone:

    // Force slug auto generate
    function myplugin_update_slug( $data, $postarr ) {
    if (in_array($postarr['post_type'], array('post', 'page', 'chronik', 'mitglied', 'galerie', 'vorstand', 'event')) &&
    !in_array($data['post_status'], array('publish', 'draft', 'pending', 'auto-draft', 'future', 'private', 'trash'))) {
    $data['post_name'] = sanitize_title( $data['post_title'] );
    return $data;
    add_filter( 'wp_insert_post_data', 'myplugin_update_slug', 9, 2 );
