This is my first post on here so please let me know if I have done something wrong with this post.
I am currently working on a project that has the ACF user field. However I want to edit the field so that if the user has an editor role, then they cannot select themselves from the user field. However I do want them to have the ability to select everyone else including other editors.
I was wondering if this is possible and how would I do this if it is possible?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read my post.
There is an undocumented hook for the user field
This works just like the same hook for a relationship field that is documented here https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/acf-fields-relationship-query/.
The arguments are those for the WP get_users() function https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_users, you can set the “exclude” argument to the current user and that should remove them from the list.
Hi John Huebner,
Thank you so much for the help. It worked great.
